Friday’s memorial service took place at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs.

His sister talked about how her brother always set out to finish what he started.

“Josh was my hard headed, stubborn, teddy bear of a man. He strived for nothing but perfection and if he set a goal he was going to accomplish it, no matter the challenge,” Morgan Thompson said.

Voth helped teach offenders valuable trade skills at the East Cañon Correctional Complex.
