MILFORD – Justin “Jozz” Joslyn, 31, of Milford, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020 at his home.
Justin was born in Oneonta on Aug. 12, 1988, to Blaine and Celeste Joslyn. He graduated from Milford Central School and went on to study computer engineering at SUNY New Paltz and Herkimer Community College.
Justin worked several years in the production department of the Cooperstown Dream Park. His other jobs in the area included Wigel’s Auto Parts, Iannelli’s restaurant, automotive paint, preparation and body work, Gifford’s lawn care and most recently Family Dollar in Hartwick Seminary.
Justin “Jozz” was an avid computer game enthusiast from an early age and maintained hundreds of online friends from all over the local area, throughout the U.S. as well as other countries.
The family is truly grateful for each and every beautiful word said and donations made by his friends locally and online who have reached out in more ways than one: donations made in his name through a “go fund me page”, donation of space for his memorial celebration, kind words and tributes of friendship shared to express how much he will be missed.
Justin also enjoyed fishing, boating, camping, snowmobiling, basketball, dining out with friends and spending time with his dogs.
Justin is survived by his parents, Blaine and Celeste Joslyn of Milford; his sister, Kate Joslyn; Uncle Dean Joslyn and Aunt Theresa Joslyn and their children Brooke and Kevin; his Uncle Brian Joslyn and his daughter, Kelly Joslyn; his Uncle Edwin Price; his Grandmother, Alberta Launt; his cousin Brooke (Wurship) and Felipe Cuji and their children, Vinny and Michael.
Jozz’s contagious laugh, wonderful sense of humor, easy going way and quick wit will be sorely missed by all knew and loved him.
A celebration of life will be held from 2-7 pm on Saturday, Feb. 15, the Upper Susquehanna Cultural Center on North Main Street (Route 28) in Milford.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Susquehanna SPCA, 4841 NY 28, Cooperstown, NY 13326.
