1988 ~ 2016

It is with broken hearts that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of Joshua John Robert Kyle Megeney on Thursday, October 6, 2016, at the age of 28 years. Josh will be greatly missed by his parents, John and Karen (nee Shakness) Megeney of Medicine Hat; his older sister, Melissa (Jordan) Green and their two children, Jensen and Emmett; his older brother, Brandon (Amanda) Megeney and their two children, Xander and Helix; grandparents, Earl and Diane Shakness of Westville, Nova Scotia as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by his grandparents, George and Elizabeth Megeney of Stellarton, Nova Scotia. Josh was born on September 12, 1988, in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, raised in Stellarton and at 14 years of age, he and his family moved to Alberta. Josh graduated from St. Joseph’s Collegiate High School in Brooks, AB. and started his career in the oilfield shortly thereafter. Josh had a kind soul and a generous heart. He cared deeply for others and enjoyed making people happy. This was clear through Josh’s unique sense of humour and his natural ability to make people laugh. Josh loved animals, especially his dog, Jake, whom he adored. He will be deeply missed by those who were lucky enough to know him.
