Josiah Andrew HAAK

Feb. 16, 2007 – Aug. 2, 2009

It is with broken hearts that we announce that our son Josiah has gone to be with Jesus.

From the day he was born Josiah has been “supported by God” (the meaning of his name) and faced every challenge with courage and strength. Despite his limitations, his smile, touch, and eyes that looked right at you shared more than any words could say. Through his father’s blog, people from around the world were able to follow his life in a unique and powerful way (

Josiah is survived by his dad and mom, Andrew and Marie Haak of Abbotsford, and is mourned by a community of friends and family. He was greeted in heaven by two friends who have gone on before him and his great-grandparents.

A memorial service celebrating Josiah’s life will be held on Friday, August 7th at 6:00 p.m. at Ross Road Community Church, 3160 Ross Road, Abbotsford, BC. In lieu of flowers and gifts, small potted trees may be purchased at the service with all proceeds going to BC Children’s Hospital.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
