Joshua Mellor

June 8, 1982 - September 27, 2021


Josh beloved husband of Miranda (Fraser) Mellor and father to Georgia (3) and Mila (3 months). Son of Jeannie and Mark Mellor, brother to Sara Phillips (Tom), and amazing uncle to Hayley. Son in law to Gordon and Marilyn Fraser, brother in law to Scott and Kristine Fraser and uncle to Ainsley and Emery. Grandson to Angela Mills (Idaho), nephew to Eileen Mellor, Bill Mellor, Sheri and Larry Farr (Washington State), Greg and Lynda Mills (Idaho), several cousins, and many great Aunts and Uncles.

Predeceased by his Grandparents John and Betty (Woods)Mellor, Grandfather Sherrild Mills (Idaho). Josh also leaves behind several wonderful friends, farmers, customers, and his dog Oreo.

Josh was born and raised in the Cowichan Valley to a pioneer farming family. He went to Cowichan Secondary School where he graduated in 2001. He won the AutoSkills Championship in BC, and through that won a full scholarship to BCIT where he attended Heavy Duty Mechanics. He attended VIU for his last couple of years graduating as a red seal heavy duty mechanic in 2007. Josh then spent a year travelling around Australia and working on farms there. He returned home and started Mellor Mobile Mechanical, working on equipment, both locally and in the Yukon.

Josh met Miranda his future wife in 2011, and was immediately smitten. They were married on the family farm June 7, 2014. Like in their wedding song lyrics “I’ll do anything with you anywhere”, they were always up for an adventure together.

On September 29, 2019 they happily welcomed their first bundle of joy, sweet Georgia. Then on June 9, 2021 they welcome their second beautiful daughter our little Miss Mila. Josh really loved being a dad to his girls, and a husband to Miranda, these girls were his world.

Josh’s passion was farming and everything related. His summers were spent making hay and fixing equipment.

Josh will be greatly missed by many. He held his many friendships very close to his heart. He was very shocked at the outpouring of community support for him and his family, and wanted to thank everyone for their involvement.

Josh contracted the Delta Variant of Covid the last few days in August and ended up in Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC. We were so blessed to have the most wonderful, caring, compassionate staff in the ICU and would like to thank each and every one of them for their valiant efforts to save Josh.

There will be a private family service with a Celebration of Life when this pandemic is under control .
