Joshua R. “Josh” Ach
September 13, 1974 ‒ August 16, 2016
Formerly of Galena, Ohio
Joshua R. “Josh” Ach, age 41 of Westerville and formerly of Galena died unexpectedly at his home.
He was born to Paul R. Ach and Bonnie S. (Anderson) Riesen on September 13, 1974 at Riverside Hospital in Columbus.
Josh was a graduate of Big Walnut High School in their class of 1993 and attended The Ohio State University. He worked for many years at Allen’s Coin Shop in Westerville and more recently as an independent dealer of gold and silver. Many people in the industry may remember him as “Toothcrusher”.
He was an artist and expressed his passion through sketches, music, and as a high schooler in the theatre. Josh loved playing the Blues on the drums, bass and acoustic guitar. He was very good at darts and he’d partner with his girlfriend Sue in tournaments.
He was an eclectic individual who was as talented as he was smart. Josh never knew a stranger. He was a great storyteller and loved to talk about his adventures.
While all the above make up who Joshua was, his legacy is his three boys, Clayton, Jake, and Charlie. They took trips to Splatter Park, went camping, and he was always buying them authentic military gear. Regardless of what they were doing, most important was that they were together.
He will be missed by his father and step-mom Paul and Sallee of Marengo; his mom Bonnie Riesen of Galena; grandmother Jennie Anderson of Cambridge, Ohio; three boys, Clayton of Westerville and Jake and Charlie of Centerburg; the mother of his children Lori Nance Ach; sister Rachel Porter and her husband Kyle of Hilliard; nephew Canaan Porter; nieces Keira and Lexi Porter; aunts, uncles, and cousins; girlfriend Susan Anderson Accetturo; and close friends Chris and Will.
