Joshua Aaron Ribble

September 30, 2022

Joshua Aaron Ribble, 42, died on September 30, 2022, at NMCHealth in Newton, Kansas.


He was born on April 1, 1980, in Belleville, IL, the son of Dale and Caroline (Foat) Ribble. He attended Newton Bible Christian School, Berean Academy and Parkview Christian School in Lincoln, NE, where he graduated from with the class of 1998. Josh would later attend Butler Community College.


On June 17, 2000, Josh was united in marriage to Jaci Smith in Newton. The couple celebrated 22 years of marriage this year.


For the past 15 years Josh was employed as grind shop lead at Harlow Aerostructures in Wichita, Kansas.


Josh attended the Newton Christian Church in Newton, Kansas. For several years Josh and Jaci lovingly opened their home and fostered children.


Josh enjoyed attending Chloe and Caity’s dance recitals and taking recital videos. Josh loved photography and had a gift for capturing beautiful scenes – though his favorite photos usually involved his family. When he wasn’t creating videos or taking photos you could find him playing computer games with his girls or fixing computers.


Josh is survived by his wife, Jaci Ribble; daughters, Chloe and Caity Ribble; parents, Dale and Caroline (Foat) Ribble; brothers, Jon Ribble and Dan Ribble; sisters, Raychel Hurdle and Beth Ann Bennett; and numerous other friends and family members.


A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 6, 2022 at Newton Christian Church, 210 Southport Dr. in Newton, Kansas.
