Josue “Josh” Tello, age 61 of Crystal, passed away on Monday, September 17, 2018 at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing.
A family man through and through, Josh loved spending time with his family and friends. He especially enjoyed going to his grandkid’s events and games which he hardly ever missed. Family BBQ’s and pontoon boat rides were always a good time and something Josh enjoyed doing. He loved to crank his music loud and was also a big sports fan – “Go Blue”! In his younger years, Josh liked driving at the mud bogs and later in life enjoyed watching others do it.
