Joshua B. Noerenberg

Joshua Brian Noerenberg was born on April 23, 1991 to David and Dawn (Helmic) Noerenberg in Worthington, Minnesota. The family moved and lived in Jackson, Minnesota, Ocheyedan, Iowa, Windom, Minnesota and Ellsworth, Minnesota. Josh attended school and graduated from Ellsworth High School in 2010. He then moved to Luverne, Minnesota and began working at Golden Plump. In 2016, Josh began working at Total Card. In 2021, he accepted a job as a collection manager at Capital Services.

Josh loved to play Magic the Gathering as well as collect the cards. He also played Dungeon and Dragons with friends and family. Overall, Josh loved strategy and gaming. In the months that he did stream, Josh was committed to it and while doing so, was able to touch many lives through that platform.

Josh was passionate about his family, friends, games and work. He had an amazing ability to make everything light even when the situation was difficult. He was able to be caring and compassionate, while being straight to the point all at once. He was forgiving and logical. He had a great sense of humor and was always making jokes. Josh was the very best at anything he put his mind to.

On Saturday, July 22, 2023 Josh passed away due to complications following cardiac arrest at M Health University of Minnesota Medical Center – East Bank in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the age of 32 years, two months and 29 days. His spirit will continue to live in the hearts of his family and friends.

Josh is survived by his fiancé, Julia Christensen; three children, Storm, Aliyah, and Raine; parents, Dawn Helmic of Rochester, Minnesota and David Noerenberg of Luverne; three siblings, Nathan (Alexandra) Noerenberg of Wanamingo, Minnesota, Kristen Noerenberg of Luverne, and Kelsey (Caleb) Saarloos of Dell Rapids, South Dakota; and grandparents, Russell and Jan Jonas, Roxann and Alfred Polzine, and Denny and Carol Noerenberg; a niece, Willo; five nephews, Wyatte, Wesley, Ezra, Quinnton and Elliot; and other family and friends.

After Josh’s passing, he was able to donate the following to give others the opportunity to live or have a better quality of life: heart valves, saphenous veins, femoral veins, and aortic iliac grafts. The team that updated us on this let us know how wonderful it was that Josh chose to donate because these are very rare donations. We are all so happy that even in death, Josh was able to help others. We ask that you continue to keep Julia and his girls in your thoughts and prayers during this impossible time.

Monetary donations are preferred to assist with expenses and help Julia and the girls through this time.
