Mr. Joshua Bennett “Josh” Fulford, 39 of Waycross, passed away Monday evening, October 11, 2021, at his residence.
Born in Waycross, GA on October 14, 1981, he had lived in Ware and Brantley Counties all of his life. Josh was a 2001 graduate of Brantley County High School. In January of 2002, Josh had a life-changing four-wheeler accident which resulted in him having a traumatic brain injury and stroke. He was always a loving son who loved to tell jokes and make you laugh. Before his accident he loved to hunt and fish. Things changed following the accident.
