Mr. Heald was born on February 6, 1986, in Thomasville, GA, to Gary Ronald Heald and the late Heidi Suzanne Tucker. On August 12, 2010, he married Stacie Dixon Heald, who survives. He was an employee of the City of Thomasville. Josh wore many hats throughout his life from turning wrenches to farming to being a hardworking honorary garbage truck driver, but of all the things he loved the most, his favorite was being a husband and daddy. He sure loved his two girls. He was a great man, a wonderful son, best friend to his dad, a role model and friend to his younger brother. He was an amazing friend and loved by everyone and would give his shirt off his back to a friend in need. He loved hunting, fishing, being on the water and working outside on his little family’s farm that he built from the ground up. Josh loved Jesus and aspired to be a Godly man in everything that he did.
