A word from the family:
Josh struggled as so many do with addiction. He tried many times to overcome this, however, the demons that torment those with addiction won his earthly battle. We are heart broken, sad and incredibly overwhelmed at this time but know our God is bigger, stronger and will carry us when we cannot move. If you are struggling, please don’t do it in silence. Know that you are deeply loved and cared for, you are a child of God. Another tragic life lost way too young due to an epidemic. Our family will always remember how hard Josh tried to win the battle. The sorry, the sadness, the tears, the long talks, the forgiveness, we are thankful for the many friends and family that have walked along side of us, over the years.

The Refuge is a leading faith-based addiction recovery organization founded in Ohio in 1999 with a mission to change the lives of men affected by addiction through Christ. It was one of those places that allowed Josh to climb the mountain of addiction and give him hope for a future. Without places like this, there will be many more lives lost. Please join us in making a difference. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to our family.
