With the saddest of hearts and all that knew him, we acknowledge the passing of our most beloved son, father, brother, uncle, Joshua Fredrick Ruckdaschel (AKA) RUCK at the age of 39.  The Lord took Joshua from us and lifted him up to Heaven.  Ruck, left a huge hole that will never be filled left in the hearts of everybody who knew Josh.   

Josh was born in Butte, Montana on September 30, 1982, the only son of Edwin Allan and Kay Ann (Herrmann) Ruckdaschel and the beloved brother of Erika (Ruckdaschel) Roberton.  Throughout his life Josh experienced much happiness.  The greatest was the birth of his beautiful daughter, Elizabeth Spolar.  He loved her with all his heart.  Throughout Josh’s life he made many friends, some life long and new ones when he moved to Douglas in 2001.  Josh was raised in Whitehall, Montana and attended school there, he later received his diploma from Anaconda High School.

Josh moved to Wyoming along with his parents and sister in 2001, where he lived for the last 21 years of his life.  He worked various jobs until his most recent with Paquette Construction.  He loved his boss and his best friend, Richie Paquette.

Josh loved baseball, fishing, camping, motorcycles, and the most die-hard Raiders fan ever known. He loved poker parties with his family and friends and cribbage.  Joshua was so loved by many; he will be missed beyond all comprehension!  The world lost a person, Heaven gained an angel.

Josh is survived by his parents, Eddy and Kay Ruckdaschel of Douglas; sister, Erika (Thomass) Roberton and their children Zoe and Ryan of Douglas; his most precious gift to him was his daughter, Elizabeth Spolar of Whitehall, Montana; grandfather, Robert Herrmann of Elcho, Wisconsin; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
