Joshua Brandon Crane Death-Obituary: Joshua Brandon Crane, a medical student at UC Davis, passed away at the age of 30, and his death has been mourned by his family, classmates, and teachers. On Friday, a Navy veteran who had served for five years went missing while attending a social event that he had organized for his fellow medical school students.
According to his sister Jessica Crane, who spoke with KCRA 3, “He observed some people in danger in the San Juan Rapids.” “Without hesitating, he leapt off his board and into the sea, where he quickly located and rescued his friends.” On Saturday, his corpse was found in the American River by firefighters from Sacramento Metro Fire and deputies from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office.
His sister referred to him as a hero in every sense of the word when she described him. “Everyone thinks of him in that light because he was a hero to a lot of people. He’s my biggest hero.” Crane and his sister were reared by their single mother in the city of Chico, where he was born. On Monday, 29 years ago, their father passed away. After graduating from Chico High School, he enlisted in the navy when he turned 18 years old.
He was in the service for a total of five years, during which time he spent time both at Camp Pendleton and in Okinawa, Japan. When he got back, he immediately enrolled in the undergraduate program at Chico State in the hopes of eventually attending medical school there. His sister stated that he was keeping his hopes up for Davis. That was a significant victory.
Moving forward in time to the summer of this year, Joshua had completed his fourth year of medical school at the UC Davis School of Medicine. Dr. Sharad Jain, who serves as the associate dean of students, disclosed to KCRA 3 that he is now pursuing a residency in internal medicine. In addition, he had the wish to accomplish that goal at UC Davis.
