At the age of 18, Josh successfully passed his training to become a Special Constable in Hampshire Constabulary. He invited his family to his attestation and made everyone so incredibly proud of his achievements. Josh went on to attend many police incidents across the county in an attempt to help others and support his community.
Everywhere he went, Josh had an impact on people. To everyone on the outside looking in, Josh looked like the life and soul of the party.
Josh was the most genuine and kind person anyone could wish to meet. He always thought of others before himself. He was part of an incredibly close-knit family – he was a son, brother and owner of his dog, Geordie. His family – Josh’s parents, xxx and xxx, and his sister Alice – would do everything together. Christmas, birthdays, holidays, special occasions, concerts, sports games, pub visits and everything in between.
Josh began developing new romantic attachments with girls he met on his travels. His young mind lacked the experience of life and relationships. His kind nature would often be taken advantage of. The highs and lows of all relationships are unavoidable, but to Josh, probably as a result of his depression, they were devastating.
