Joshua C. Light, 22, of Big Ridge Road, Kingsport, went to be with Jesus November 29, 2009, at his home surrounded by his loving family following a courageous 3 � year battle with leukemia.

Joshua was a born-again Christian and attended Gospel Mission Church. Joshua's heart was full of music and the love of musical instruments. He enjoyed playing and picking with all of his friends. He also loved fishing, coon hunting, cooking and eating and was an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves. But most of all, Josh cherished and loved his family.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Jonathon Light, and grandfather, Carl Householder.

Josh is survived by his parents, Rick and Susan Light of Big Ridge Road; brothers, Jacob Light and Joseph Light of the home; sister, Julia Light, also of the home; paternal grandmother, Linda Householder; maternal grandparents, Faye Dover and Ray Littleton; great-grandmother, Edith Mullins; aunts, Angie Calloway and husband David and Janie Walls and husband Stacy; uncles, Joe Littleton and Tim Dover and wife Tabitha; cousins, Indy Calloway, Olivia Calloway, Jennifer Dunn, Heather Dunn and daughter Jayna, Jessica Littleton, and Kendel and Caleb Howard; and special friends, Gina Dolen, Israel and Whitney Crawford, Sara Negrotto, Jeremy Smith, Mike Matthews, and Brandie Gilliam.

The family will receive friends from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday at Hamlett-Dobson Funeral Home, Fall Branch.
