A Suffolk native, Josh was the son of Kevin K. Kennedy and Donna P. Huneycutt and husband, Fairren. He is predeceased by his grandmother, Shelby Gordon Putman. He was a member of Oakland Christian Church.



Josh never met a stranger and loved his friends like family. He was very eager to start a family of his own. He was an excellent fisherman with a great love for being on the water, as well as the beach. He enjoyed construction work, and took pride in learning his craft. Josh loved his dog, Rock.
