DIVA Remembers Josh Cain
We will honor Josh Cain, tonight with a moment of silence at 7:25 p.m. and again at 9:50 prior to the start of each session.
DIVA has also set up an online fund to help Josh's family with funeral and other expenses during this rough time. We encourage you to make any donation - large or small to help them through this time. You can donate at https://www.youcaring.com/Josh-Cain-Memorial.
Josh Cain, an A-rated member of DIVA and NAGVA, brightened gyms across TX and nationwide with his megawatt smile and seemingly endless energy on the volleyball court.
Josh, 21, was involved in a motorcycle accident that took his life on Thursday, August 21, 2014. Josh lived in Bedford, TX in suburban Dallas, and had recently started a new job.
Josh joined DIVA 3 years ago and immediately emerged as a sought-after teammate and became a friend to a diverse selection of members. Josh also played NAGVA with many of his DIVA friends on Mufasas.
Josh was MVP of the Open/Power division of the DIVA spring season tournament in May 2014. He served as a team captain for the Summer 2014 sand season, and was registered for the fall league and planning to start play the day following his passing.
