Born on July 21, 1932 in Mexico, Maine, Joshua was the son of the late Emile and Josephine Peters Blier. He spent twenty years in the United States Navy, reaching the rank of Chief Petty Officer. After retiring from the Navy, he settled in Sampson County with his family and joined the maintenance team at Sampson Regional Hospital until retiring a second time.  Joshua was a hard working man, and also enjoyed gardening spending time with his cats and dogs.  Most of all he loved his family. He will be greatly missed.
