Joshua "Josh" Tucker Leonard

Celebration of Life service for Joshua “Josh” Tucker Leonard will be held at 2:00PM Saturday, December 2, 2023, in the chapel of Mulhearn Funeral Home Sterlington Rd. Monroe. Visitation will be from 1:00PM Saturday until service time at the funeral home.

Josh was born on June 24, 1985, in Monroe and passed away on November 28, 2023, in Monroe.

Josh carved his path through education, one that made him well known and well read. He was a graduate of River Oaks High School, LA Tech University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, and later, earning a Juris Doctor from the College of Law at Loyola University New Orleans. His life, though remarkable, was darkened by the struggles of addiction, ultimately snatching away the radiance of his inner light too early. An exceptional soul, Josh possessed an insatiable curiosity and an exceptional intellect. His fierce passion for debate was evident from a tender age, often heralding him as a future lawyer, even as it drove his mother crazy. His sharp, sarcastic humor and quick wit painted him as a memorable personality, lighting up countless moments for both friends and family. He was truly and completely loved; his presence will be deeply missed.


In June of 2020 The Universe conspired to bring Josh and The Only Love Of His Life together for a second time twenty years after first meeting as teenagers. Two people have never loved each other more than Joshua and Brittany. He is her Sun and her Moon Stars. She is his Soul’s Soul. They were married in Hamburg, Arkansas on January 21, 2022. They spent 3 and half wonderful years raising 2 of the most amazing children on God’s green earth. Joshua loved Fox and Stella with every cell in his body.


Josh was preceded in death by his father, James Edward Leonard, Jr.; Maternal grandparents, Carmelyn Slavent Tucker, Joel Bryan Tucker, Sr. and uncle, Joel Bryan Tucker, Jr., Paternal Grandparents, Helen Burgess Leonard, and James Edward Leonard, Sr. 

Survivors include his wife, Brittany Leonard; stepchildren, Fox Bird and Stella Bird; mother, Phyllis Tucker Wofford, her husband Bobby Wofford; and brother, Christopher Leonard, and his wife Olivia Leonard.

Memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
