Joshua M. Rheaume, 27 of Manchester, passed away unexpectedly on January 4, 2019. He was born on August 16, 1991 to Judith Kinsman and Jerry Rheaume, The greatest joy in his life was his son Keanie. Josh had a huge heart and would always try to help those he loved most. He had a great personality and sense of humor.

Josh was always ready to make people laugh with his quick Witt and corny dad jokes. He also loved to sing even though he couldn't carry a note. He loved to spend time with his son and hanging out with friends and family either watching his favorite teams, Patriots and Red Sox, or attending barbecues. He also enjoyed camping, fishing, cruising around town, and always had a bad joke to tell.

Josh did not have an easy life as he struggled with addiction and trying to find his place in this world. He attended West High School before transitioning to Job Corps in Vermont where he earned his G.E.D and Certificate of Auto Mechanics.

Josh is survived by his son Keanie Rheaume, his parents Judith Kinsman and Gerald Rheaume, stepmother Theresa Rheaume, brother Chris Kinsman, sisters Angie Kinsman, Amber Rheaume, stepsister Rochelle Neveu, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

This breaks my heart so deeply. Our family has known Josh since middle school and I can honestly say he was one of my favorite people. He ALWAYS had a huge smile and was always SO encouraging and loving...he instantly lit up when talking about his son as he was his pride and joy. Joshua you will be missed terribly and I know I can only speak for myself but I know a piece of my heart will always be missing knowing you are no longer here on Earth to share your beautiful self with. Please rest easy and know you were a one of a kind kind of man...RIP.
