Tragic news for Below Deck’s Captain Lee.
People Magazine reports that Captain Lee Rosbach’s son, Joshua Lee Rosbach, has died of an accidental drug overdose at the age of 42.
The beloved Bravo Captain posted the following tribute on his Instagram page, sharing the pain and heartache his family was going through:
“This past Saturday, my beloved wife Mary Anne and I laid our youngest son, Joshua Lee Rosbach to rest. After a twenty-year struggle, he finally succumbed to the demons he fought so long and so hard. Addiction is an insidious disease that knows no social status or geographic boundaries.
Whether you live in a 10,000 sq. ft. mansion or a double-wide trailer, the path of death, destruction and devastation it leaves remains the same. We loved Josh unconditionally and were proud of the man he had become in spite of his problems. There was no one i ever knew who gave more of himself to those in his life. He loved with all his being without expecting anything in return. We both feel a hole in our souls that will never be filled.
So my message to those of you who are fighting this disease, find a way to get help no matter what. For those of you who have a friend, family member, son, or daughter who’s struggling, do whatever it takes to get them the help they need. Be kind and loving, and try to enjoy every second you have with them. Do not pray for our son, but please take care of your children and friends who may need it, as it isn’t too late for them. Captain & Mary Anne.”
The addiction/overdose rates have become an epidemic in this country and almost everyone knows someone who has been affected. Our hearts, prayers, and thoughts go out to Captain Lee and his family. <3
