Joshua Paul Ottman, 36, of Oronoco, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, June 30, 2012, from complications of Type 1 Diabetes.

Joshua was born Sept. 7, 1975, in Rochester, to John and Mary (Walker) Ottman. Joshua worked with his brother at Ottman Excavating, Inc.

He loved to be outdoors, hunting morel mushrooms in the spring, fishing and hunting, and enjoyed riding and racing ATVs. He was a true kid at heart and enjoyed having fun.
