JUNE 1, 2000 – MAY 27, 2021
Josh Cameron Bauerle, born June 1st, 2000, went to his heavenly home to be with his Lord and Savior, just a few days before his 21st birthday. Josh had an infectious smile and lit up every room he walked in. He made it hip and cool to be a happy person. He
had a human spirit that could not be shaken. A beautiful gift he left behind for all of us. If you knew him, you loved him. He lived his life with passion and an open heart. He always had a kind word. He loved the outdoors and was able to travel to the Caribbean,
Peru, the Colorado Mountains, Sequoia National Park, New York, Montana, and many other places. His dream was to visit the Seven Wonders of the World. He enjoyed traveling with his family and his close-knit group of friends.
Josh loved nature and it brought him peace and joy. He admired beautiful sunsets, listening to the birds, and watching the clouds move. He also loved to look sharp and took great pride in his appearance. He loved wearing his Dad’s old vintage caps and shopping
at Goodwill. Josh had big dreams for his life he was always trying to come up with the next great invention. Since he was very young, his mom wanted him to go on Shark Tank and was sure he would one day. He was also a prankster with his friends and loved to
give his brother and sister a hard time. He was a feisty and energetic young boy for sure! Josh was also a very deep soul and strived to be the best person he could be daily. In high school, he was a special needs aide assisting autistic students. He had a
heart of gold and compassion that was unparalleled. He was an avid music buff. He loved his music and loved to share with friends and family. Most recently, he had a passion with cooking Wagyu steaks. He loved his cast iron skillet and making the perfect steak.
He loved nice cars and had a goal to have a beautiful Audi sports car one day. Josh loved his old dog Aspen, his cat Dirg, Lexi’s dog Mochi and his new puppy buddy Enzo. Josh had established many new friendships by being a proud member of the Phi Delta Theta
fraternity at Texas A&M. Josh was a very proud student of Texas A&M pursuing a degree in Ag Economics.
Family was very important to Josh and he was highly motivated to make his parents, grandparents and siblings proud of him.
Josh’s twin sister Lexi and his older brother Jake were thick as thieves and had an unbreakable bond and deep love for one another. They always had each other’s back. Our family is extremely grateful for the amazing group of friends Josh has been surrounded
by since a very young age. His friends brought him so much joy, laughter, support and love. We are so grateful for that. They are an incredibly loyal and tight group of buddies. Especially Matthew and Key. Also, Dalton, Pete, Will, Josh, Alex, Levi, Dawson,
