  • I worked with Josh laying fiber optical line. We went on a trip together to get supplies in Girard. It was raining so hard we had to drive 40 miles an hour. He was the passenger and took a picture making fun of the situation. He bought me breakfast that morning. I will miss his enthusiasm and smile. God speed my friend.” — J.G.
