Joshua T. Archer, age 32 of Fort Wayne, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 29, 2019 at home. He was the son of Jeff and Erin Archer who survive.
Born on June 23, 1987 in Fort Wayne, Josh, as most knew him, was a 2006 graduate of South Side High School and a graduate of Manchester University. He was employed by Parkview Health at Parkview Behavioral Hospital and had a heart for helping others, especially troubled youth. He was a kind, giving person who was truly larger than life with the ability to relate to just about anyone. He was a woodworker, a Chicago White Sox fan and an avid reader. Above all, Josh treasured and adored his children and his family – to him family and friends meant the world.
On June 15, 2013, Josh was married to Jessica Orban in Fort Wayne. She and their two children: Rowan and Tobias Archer survive. Also surviving are his parents, Jeff and Erin Archer; brother, Avery Archer (wife, Christine); sister, Abigail Archer (fiancé, Koradon Eby); two nephews; a niece and his maternal grandmother, Dolores Hazlett. Those who preceded Josh in passing include his maternal grandfather, paternal grandparents and three uncles.
