Our Beloved PT Brother, Josh Holmes, Passed Away


It’s with great sorrow I bring to you the news that our great friend and PT brother, Josh Holmes, passed away.

He was a gentle giant with a huge heart.  Josh started his own practice back in 2012 serving veterans and breast cancer survivors in Rochester Minnesota.

This is a picture of Josh at an IndeFree conference in New York City. He was posing with other attendees, having fun and making us smile.

He was so full of life and brightened every room he walked in.

He is survived by his wife Jill who attended conferences with him and helped with the clinic business.

He’s also survived by his 3 children: Jess (22), Tucker (16), and Eli (14).

I remember how fondly he spoke about his family and his clinic.

He will be truly missed…

His sudden departure left some burdens on the family and a GoFundMe page was created by a family friend.

They haven’t met their goal and so I’d like to reach out to you for help.

I ask that you help his wife and kids with any size donation you find it in your heart to give. Anything will help.


Anything you give will be an act of kindness, generosity, and pledge of remembrance of Josh.


I pray that you hold, hug and kiss your loved ones a little tighter tonight. Life is so precious;… we get to savor every moment of it…

May God bless greatly,


P.s. His formal obit can be read here. Josh Holmes
