Following the passing of his son due to an unintentional drug overdose, Captain Lee Rosbach has continued to spread awareness of the ongoing opioid issue. The star of Below Deck spoke to Congress in Washington, D.C., urging them to take appropriate action. Joshua Lee Rosbach, who passed away in July 2019 after a 20-year battle with addiction, was the son of Rosbach, 71, who gave emotional testimony about his last moments with him.
Recalling The Day Josh Passed Away
According to Rosbach, Josh first developed a dependence on “drugs” after being given painkillers for two broken feet and a broken leg he sustained in an accident and this became the reason for how captain lee’s son Joshua died. He spent a month in the hospital and left loving the high he had experienced from the narcotics the staff had given him, according to Rosbach. Josh attended rehabilitation centers on and off in the years that followed. Rosbach opened up about the day Josh passed away, stating that it began like any other day.
After dealing with his son’s death, Below Deck star Captain Lee Rosbach went through something no parent ever wants to go through, and he explained why he decided to address the sorrow in public. Joshua Rosbach, the youngest son of Rosbach, passed away from an accidental overdose in July 2019 at the age of 42.
“Josh texted him shortly after he came back from the gym to let him know he was going to pass away today but will be around first thing on Monday to hang out and assist with the cars. His tendency to make last-minute decisions was not exceptional.
On Monday When Rosbach entered Josh’s house, he said that he could hear his son’s dog barking in a different room. The dog usually runs to welcome him at the door, not wait for him in another room, so he was immediately frightened. He soon located his son on the couch, clinging to the side of his dog. Josh was sitting with his hat on his head as soon as the captain reached to him to wake him up he then felt that his son had left.
Captain lee’s Saying For His Son
Josh had a special soul. None of the people he met didn’t like him. When a parent talks about their child, they can use words like “handsome” and “charming” with pride and a grin. Captain Lee could wax lyrical about what a wonderful man he was for hours. The voyage he made with the medicine that claimed his life was not a very pleasant one.
In his final statement, Rosbach issued a call to action, urging Congress to step up efforts to build better and more rehabilitation facilities so that addicts can receive care. We must take action right away since there is so much that needs to be done to address the opioid issue, he said. “Josh is out of time. Although it’s too late for my family, it’s still not too late for the vast majority of those who urgently require our assistance
