A service will be held Wednesday for a 29-year-old man who disappeared July 8 while inner tubing in the Puyallup River.

Josh McNamara’s friends and family will gather at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Church For All Nations, 111 – 112th Street East , Tacoma. The public is invited.

McNamara floated away on the river in Orting. Two fishermen found his body Aug. 19 about 11 miles from where he was last seen.

The Buckley man worked at RS Construction & Excavation Inc., enjoyed camping and riding ATVs and was known as a fun-loving family man who doted on his 2-year-old daughter.
