“It is with a shattered heart that I write this post to let you know that my sweet Josh left this earth Easter Sunday” Peterson shared on Instagram. “No one can ever prepare you for this feeling of such deep loss. Every fiber in my body hurts. Josh fought every single day for most of his adult life for his life but this past Sunday the challenge was too great.”

Peterson also remembered Josh’s childhood, which was full of intelligence, humor, sports. He also liked outdoor adventures like snowboarding and hiking, reading, friendships, and a passion for music.

Waring spent time in prison multiple times. In 2020, he got out after four years for pleading guilty to assault with a firearm and leading police on a chase. In 2016, he initially faced attempted murder charges for shooting a man outside a sober living home.

Further, in 2022, he pleaded guilty to drug charges and got a two-year prison sentence. He didn’t report to his probation officer a few months ago, and a warrant was issued for his arrest in January. Then, in February, he was arrested for allegedly punching a hospital security guard. He got released from jail in March.

Lauri Peterson expressed gratitude to those who supported Josh. She also thanked those who shared their own struggles with substance abuse and loss. In addition to his mom and daughter, Josh is survived by sisters Ashley and Sophie.

I extend my deepest gratitude to all those who tried to support Josh along his journey. I’ve witnessed countless acts of kindness from earthly angels. Substance abuse disorder is a battle many don’t understand, but I’m forever thankful for those who showed compassion and made a difference in Josh’s life. To those who have supported me during this trying time and shared their own experiences with substance abuse disorder or the loss of loved ones to this illness, your kindness means the world to me.

Josh, my love for you knows no bounds, and I’ll miss you beyond words. You’ll always be my ‘Mama Bear & Mama Dukes,’ and every time the clock strikes 11:11, I’ll imagine your voice urging me to make a wish. What do I wish for now? My thoughts are with you, and I pray you’ve found the peace you deserve. Heaven has gained an extraordinary angel, and you’ve finally found your freedom, my sweet boy. With love that’s eternal, Mom ❤️❤️🤍🤍”
