Josh was born on June 27, 1988, in Concord, North Carolina. Josh thought the world of his family and friends. He moved several times, back and forth between his family in Marietta, Ohio, and Wilson, Okla. He settled in Wilson so that he could be close to his niece and nephew. He met Michelle Wyatt and was planning a future with her and her daughter, Brayley. Josh enjoyed fishing, hunting, and family cookouts. He was the life of the party, and if anyone could make you laugh, it was Josh. He will be greatly missed by everyone.
