Joshua Clayton Heisie (born 4/10/1989) passed away Saturday, January 25th 2020 as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Prince Edward County, Ontario. Josh will always be remembered as an immensely creative person who harbored a passion for acting, comedy, screenwriting, art, and cinema. At the time of his death, Josh was near completion on the screenplays for his first series of feature films set in a stylized dystopian Canadian future, working as Game Master of a local escape room, and performing with a improv comedy group in Picton, Ontario.
A native of the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta, Josh’s creative pursuits brought him to Toronto and Prince Edward County where he touched the lives of countless people as a friend, inspiration, and creative muse. His signature can be seen throughout the Pass, in murals at local schools, art at the Crowsnest Museum and Bellevue Underground Mine, and in the minds of those who watched his films like “Egg People from Outer Space” at the local Orpheum. Josh had the ability to create entire worlds in his imagination and draw people into it through his excitement and vision until they could all see and feel it. The loss of his unique outlook on life is tremendous.
He is survived by his parents, Lorna and Stanley Heisie; his brother Matthew Heisie; and his grandparents Charles Heisie and Barbara Basaraba. He is predeceased by his grandmother Patricia Heisie (1943-2019).
The Funeral Mass will be held at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church (13126, 21 Ave., Blairmore, AB) on Friday, February 7, 2020 at 11:00am with Fr. Eric Nelson as Celebrant and Fr.
