Josh was preceded in death by his nephew, Kohen Lane Humphries; his paternal grandparents, George and Mavis Humphries; his maternal grandfather, Dalton Meredith; and his uncles: Steve Humphries, Glenn Humphries, and Jeff Humphries.
Josh had a contagious smile, a kind heart, and sparking blue eyes that left an impression on everyone who met him. He never met a stranger and loved to help people whenever he saw a need. He loved deeply and lived life to the fullest. He will be greatly missed.

He also leaves behind a host of extended family and a multitude of friends.
Serving as pallbearers will be Jason Humphries, Kevin Humphries, Lance Humphries, Dwayne Humphries, Bryce Stott, and Josh Blackwell.
The family would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for the outpouring of love, prayers, food, donations and all the help they have received during this time. Their appreciation is also extended to Daniel Ferguson Transportation, the Parker's cemetery crew, The Flower and Gift Shop, FBC of Olla, and Riser Funeral Home. They are comforted knowing each of you loved Josh as much as they did.
