Joshua J. DuBois, 41, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away Friday, August 11, 2017 unexpectedly at home. He was the son of James and Sandra DuBois.
He attended Southern Door High School where he enjoyed being part of the wrestling team. He later went on to obtain his HSED. Josh then went on and received his welding certification from Moraine Park Technical College. He had worked at restaurants throughout Door County and was a highly skilled waiter and bartender. Josh had worked on various fishing charter services and presently was 1st Mate employed with RV Charters out of Algoma. He enjoyed fishing daily with his captain Neil Sealy.
On August 15, 2016, he married the love of his life, Stephanie Ann Gunnlaugsson, at her mother’s home in Sturgeon Bay. They had been together these past six years. Together, they enjoyed camping, bonfires, their dog Pugsley, cats Goober, Simba, Smokey, and Jas (Josh And Steph). They loved date night together and bowling. Josh had just taken up golfing again with his step-son, Montana. He was a kind, gentle soul who loved the outdoors, being on the water or in the woods, and bowhunting. Josh was all in as a Packer fan and loved harassing Stephanie about being a Bears fan.
