Joshua Lee was born Dec. 9, 1987, in Osmond, to Jeffrey Byron and Carol Ann (Burbach) Wolfe. He grew up in Coleridge and graduated from Coleridge High School in 2006. He attended Northeast Community College, Norfolk, for two years and then spent three years working on his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Wayne State College. Josh was part of a fraternity in Wayne called Tau Kappa Epsilon. He first began working for Christensen Brozek Faltus Accounting firm in Norfolk for three years. Josh then moved to Hartington and worked for Milbrath –Sayler Bookkeeping from 2012-2017. Josh moved to Omaha in 2017 and worked for Green Plains Company in the tax division.
Josh loved to golf and go boating with family and friends on the weekends. He really enjoyed live music and was instrumental in starting “Music in the Park” in Norfolk. Josh liked riding side-by-sides and was a member of the Coleridge ATV Riders. He loved his niece and two nephews and he would always bring them something. He was a Husker fan and enjoyed going over to the “Lodge” in Coleridge to watch the Husker games. Megan’s dog – Chopper – will miss Josh immensely. Josh could make friends easily and he always stayed true to his Grandpa Wolfe’s advice of “Friends are worth more than money.”
