Joshua Maxim

January 6th, 1982 – January 2023

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that our beloved Josh Maxim has suddenly passed
away. Although Josh has lived in several locations throughout his life, he always considered
North Attleborough his home.

Josh will be missed by his father, Raymond M. Maxim and his wife Mary of North
Attleborough; his brother, Anthony (Tony) Sampson and his wife Christine of New Hampshire;
his brother, A.J. Sampson and his wife Lisa of Norton; his sister, Alison “Ali-Bean” Sampson of
North Attleborough; and his brother, David Maxim of North Attleborough. Josh is also survived
by his nieces and nephews: Anthony Sampson of Bridgewater, Tyler Sampson of East
Greenwich, RI., Sophia Sampson of New Hampshire, April Maxim of North Attleborough, and
Garrett Sampson of Norton. In addition to Josh’s family, he is survived by many great friends
that considered him family.

Josh is preceded in death by his Mother, Christine G. Sampson of Plymouth, MA and also by his
dear friends: Colen O’Brien of Cotuit, MA and Christine Green Craveiro of Port St. Lucie, FL –
Great friends reunited too soon!

Josh started working at Jacqueline Electrical & Contracting (JEC) in South Easton, MA in 2011,
not long after Jackie opened her doors. To this day he is the longest working JEC employee and
will be missed by the colleagues he connected with over the years. Not to be overshadowed by
him being crowned the North Attleborough Wendy’s very first employee of the month – check it
out, his name is still on the wall.

Josh enjoyed robot zombie apocalypse fiery explosive space action movies, yes, all in one
movie. He loved playing games; he was a fierce beer pong opponent, a worthy billiard pool
partner, and a competitive card player. Josh loved outdoor activities…camping, exploring, being
near the water, extreme golf-cart off-roading, and a good firepit session. Josh had a very curious
and analytical mind; he enjoyed problem solving and fixing anything that was fueled or powered.
Josh in Home Depot was like a kid at Toys R Us! He would get lost for hours, looking at every
tool and dreaming about what he could do with it. Josh loved to laugh and to make others laugh,
often at his own expense. He had a sensitive soul that kids and animals alike always gravitated

Josh’s 40 years were filled with priceless and long-lasting memories that will live forward in the
hearts and minds of his family and friends forever. He will be greatly missed.
Please join us to celebrate his life and legacy on January 28th from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM

    Although I haven’t been around for over a decade the greatest memories I have of my time with Josh are etched into my memory as if it were carved in stone. Originally drawn into this wild group of friends through his sister Ali, eventually I ended up spending every waking moment with Josh. We worked together, drank together, partied, and dreamed. We worked third shift together for a while and that’s when I got to see who he really was. Once you got him alone he would let down his defenses and open up his heart. No longer under the social pressure to perform for others we would talk one-on-one for hours.
    He had such a strong connection with his family, he would never hesitate to throw down to defend them or his friends.
    I always thought I would be able to see him again, say hey, maybe grab some drinks and catch up. Time goes by unfortunately.
    I would like to thank Josh not only for sharing his life with me, but also for being part of my life.
    For those of you reading this that know me and have been part of my life as well, I’d like to thank you too. You never know when you might see someone again. Don’t waste those opportunities to connect and enjoy life.
    Ali, A.J., David, Tony, and yes even Raymond. Love you all I hope you are able to find peace and happiness and look back on your time spent with Josh with a smile.
