Obituary for Joshua Adam Arden

Joshua Adam Arden, 43, of Oak Hill, WV, passed away at home on Monday, May 15, 2023. Joshua was born on October 13, 1979, at Charleston Area Medical Center in Charleston, WV, to Dallas Arden and Julie Riddle.
Joshua was a civilian contractor, supporting military operations throughout the world, a veteran of the United States Air Force, and reaching the rank of Staff Sargent while serving in the West Virginia Air National Guard.
He was an avid WVU fan who loved his Mountaineers. His sacrifice to provide, support, and love his son, Sebastian, was colossal. He was generous, to a fault, to all his family and friends. His passing has left an unfillable gap in our hearts, it’s so hard to say goodbye.
Joshua is preceded in death by his father, Dallas Arden, paternal grandparents, Clifford Arden and Helen Ball, maternal grandfather, Roger Morton, and Uncle Gary Morton.
Those left to cherish his memory include his mother and 2nd father, Julie and Burton Riddle, son Sebastian Arden, brother Matthew (Julia) Arden, sister Angie (Shannon) Jones, grandmother Dot Morton, uncle Alan Morton, and nieces Lilly and Ashley Arden, and Makynnah and Holly Jones.
He donated his body to the Human Gift Registry at Marshall University. A memorial Service will be held at a later date at the Donel C. Kinnard Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Joshua’s memory to the Donel C. Kinnard Memorial Veteran’s Cemetery, 130 Academy Dr., Dunbar, WV 25064.
