Josh loved the outdoors. Growing up he spent countless hours fishing the creek banks of East Fork and Glady Fork. His favorite pastimes included hunting and fishing with his boys, off roading, or restoring his 1968 Roadrunner. He could fix anything, and would extend those same hands to help anyone. Although Josh was a quiet soul by nature he had the ability to form lasting friendships. He will be missed by so many.
