1991 - 2009
Douglas Budget - February 11, 2009Joshua Caleb Moon (Coyne) passed on to Heaven on Monday, Feb. 9, 2009, after a brief struggle with pneumonia. Josh was born on March 29, 1991 in Greeley, Colo. to Cecil Lee Moon III and Patty Moon (now Coyne). After his birth, he moved with his family to Chugwater and then to Douglas in 2000.
As do many other children with Down Syndrome, Josh lived to love others and to have fun. He was happiest when playing with large toys, listening to loud music and doing out to eat. He always had a big smile and a hug for everyone, because even strangers were his friends.
Josh was preceded in death by his natural father. He is survived by his mother and adoptive father, Joe Coyne; by his siblings Cecil Lee Moon IV, Jennifer Carpenter, Kristen Moon, Kenzie Coyne, Rachel Moon, Daniel P. Coyne, Nichole Coyne and Danny T. Coyne; by many aunts and uncles; and by his grandparents.
All of Josh's many friends are invited to join in a Celebration of Josh's Life on Saturday, Feb. 14, 2009, at 11 a.m. in the Douglas High School Auditorium.
