He was born June 3, 1982, in Largo, FL, son of James David Crouch and Patricia Milroy Crouch, of Wilmington. His grandfather, Joseph K. Milroy, preceded him in death.
Joshua’s family moved from Florida to North Carolina in 1987 and to Wilmington in 1988. Josh attended Ogden Elementary School, Laney High School, and graduated from New Hanover High School in the class of 2000. Josh was an athlete, excelling in track and field both locally and in school. He still holds the pole vault record in his age group with the Cape Fear Flyers. His athletic ability led to his participation in the A.A.U. Junior Olympics for Track and Field. He also played baseball with the Supper Optimists and soccer with the Cape Fear Soccer Assoc.
Joshua was always an actor, but his love was music. At age 9, he started with “Stageworks” Theatre Group in Wilmington, doing commercials, movies, and parts in several television series. At age 12, he was in a national McDonalds’ commercial, and while in high school he did theatre and stage work, both in school and in local theatre, most notably the stage play “Scrooge” at Thalian Hall. His acting experience is what led to his acceptance at the American Academy Dramatic Arts in New York City. While in New York, he developed his love of music even further and helped create the group, “Mind Spray”.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his brother, Eric James Crouch, of Louisburg, NC; sister, Kristen Anne Crouch, of Wilmington, NC; Josh’s fiancée Kindy Parker; paternal grandmother, Anna Crouch, of Chicago, IL; maternal grandmother, Edith Milroy, of Wilmington, NC; aunts and uncles, Linda and Rick Dutka, of Wilmington, NC, Patricia and Roger Smigiel, of Chicago, IL, Diane Clarkson of Wilmington, Ronald Clarkson of Florida, and William Crouch, of Big Rapids, MI; numerous loving cousins; and all of his “Mind Spray” crew, colleagues, and friends in New York.

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Monday, September 25, 2006 at Scotts Hill Baptist Church with the Rev. Phil Ortego officiating. Interment will follow in Oleander Memorial Gardens.

November 15, 2006–February 26, 2007This exhibition presents one of the most innovative architecture projects under construction today. Scheduled to open for the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the complex, which comprises three buildings and a media park situated on a site east of Beijing's Forbidden City, embodies a proposal for social and urban change through a rethinking of the tall building. CCTV is a private building that will have a uniquely public Visitor's Loop, while its mirror image—TVCC, or the Television Cultural Center—is a public structure housing a state-of-the-art broadcasting theater, cultural facilities, and a five-star hotel.
The international architectural partnership Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) won the competition for its design in 2002, and the project broke ground in 2004, with OMA partner Ole Scheeren leading its design and execution. The immersive installation explores the project's internal complexity and richness, its integration of public and private uses, and its structural innovation through an array of graphics, renderings, and explanatory texts as well as large- and small-scale models,many of them presented publicly here for the first time. A selection of architectural drawings from MoMA's collection will situate the project as one of the most visionary undertakings in the history of modern architecture.
Organized by Tina di Carlo, Assistant Curator, Department of Architecture and Design, and Alexandra Quantrill, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design.
My mom picked us up the following morning and drove us back to Wilmington. It was crappy weather for the first day, but bright and sunny the rest of the weekend. With temperatures in the 90ºs, we were happy to be able to soak up some sun. Although it wasn't a great weekend for Michael, we still hung out with Jordan a fair share. He picked us up from downtown a few nights and zipped us home in his 2001 type-R Acura. That car is a beast. Never been in such a nice ride and it's fast [I won't go into details].
Jed, Robby and Ryan made it down and we all went to Bluepost and hung out. It reminded me of what Wilmington was like before I moved to Brooklyn. We ate dinner with the fam the last night we were there. It was a great time. Here are some pics, a little after the jump!
