Joshua Ryan Sandeen, 28, of Havre, Mont., passed away on Thursday, April 9, 2009, in an automobile accident near Loma, Mont.
Josh loved being around his many loved ones and will be greatly missed by many! He recently moved back to Montana around two months ago from Minnesota where his family is. Josh enjoyed construction and working on cars, as well as becoming a skilled carpenter. He loved being out in the nature, not to mention that he was just not fully complete unless he was around his loved ones. Many of us feel that Josh's friends were his family. We will miss his smiling face and the heart that he had. Survivors include his mother, Melissa Sandeen; a sister, Stacy; brother-in-law, Chris; nephew, James, all of Minnesota; grandparents from North Dakota; his 8-year-old son Jaylen Jake Crazyboy; his dog, Buddy; brothers from the heart, Sam LaTray (niece Jordan and nephew Jaden), Jon and Joe Corcoran, Nick Wagner, Brandon Main, George Belcourt (PeeWee), James Berger (Damien), Roman Nalivka, Rico Denny, Chey-an and Sam Pease. He was also survived by some sisters of the heart including Kim Johnson, Audrey Flansberg, 2nd Mom Sharon Barlow, Alanna and Jennifer Corocoran, Angie Welch, Nichole Whitford, Stacy Samoy (Cowan), Tiffany Cowan, Ella Belcourt, Leslie Crazyboy (mother of his son), and the list goes on, There is no way we could fit all of the names. We all know where we stood with Josh, and we pray that we will meet him at the gates of heaven someday when that day comes. He was preceeded in death by two brothers from the heart, Jason Eagleman and Russell Turcotte, as well as a sister from the heart, Angelina Lotton.
