Robert Joshua “Josh”Shirl Inscore, 37 of Statesville died Saturday, April 22, 2023, doing what he loved, riding his motorcycle.

Josh was a dedicated worker and knew how to do many jobs. He was employed as a superintendent at Locke-Lane Construction where he mastered carpentry, brick laying, excavating among other skills. Cooking and sharing a good meal were favorite times. He always had an immaculate yard and shared pictures of how pretty his lawn was. Josh was a people person and loved hanging out with his friends. He was always the life of the party, very funny, and loved to pull a good prank. He had a special love for children, especially his nieces and nephews, and even had a room in his home filled with arcade games, guitars, drums, candy, and all kinds of toys for them to play with. Even though Josh never married, he loved the ladies, and the ladies loved Josh!

He was loved by all who knew him and will be greatly missed.
