Joshua “Josh” Brandon Bagans died in his home on March 25, 2019, he was 37 years old. Those who were close to Josh will remember him for his radiant personality, sense of humor and compassion towards other. While much of his adult life was a struggle with addiction that ultimately claimed his life, he was a fighter but his disease proved to be too much for him.
Josh was born on February 10th, 1982 in Reading, Pennsylvania and raised by his parents, Stephanie J. Behrle (Long) and David S. Behrle. He is survived by his parents; his wife, Rosemarie Hilbert; his daughter, Trista Fulk; his siblings, Justin B. Bagans and Amber L. Keller (Bagans); his four nieces, Nikki, Breann, Caitlyn and Athena; and his loving grandmother Sandra L. Gurnavage (Fuzer).
