With a heavy heart, we announce the passing of Joshua Amir Pharr, who was called to eternal rest on October 2, 2023, in Gardena, California. Joshua was just 11 years old, born on November 10, 2011, in Lawrenceville, Georgia, to his loving parents, Tiffany Pharr and Darrius Collington.
From his earliest days, it was clear that Joshua had a deep passion for life. He had an unbridled love for music, literature, art, and possessed a gift for singing and dancing that warmed the hearts of all who knew him. He had a unique sense of humor and an infectious smile that could light up a room. Joshua was particularly fond of the enchanting world of the Coraline movie, where he found solace and inspiration.
