The Bravo star made a sad announcement on Monday.
Captain Lee Rosbach, best known as the star of Bravo’s “Below Deck” realty show, announced via Instagram on Monday that his youngest son died earlier this month.
Rosback wrote that he and his wife Mary Anne laid Joshua Lee Rosbach to rest this past Saturday. He implied that his death was the result of drug addiction:
After a twenty year struggle, he finally succumbed to the demons he fought so long and so hard.
Addiction is an insidious disease that knows no social status or geographic boundaries. Whether you live in a 10,000 sq ft mansion or a double wide trailer, the path of death, destruction and devastation it leaves remains the same.
He went on to remember how loving his son was:
We loved Josh unconditionally and were proud of the man he had become in spite of his problems. There was no one i ever knew who gave more of himself to those in his life. He loved with all his being without expecting anything in return. We both feel a hole in our souls that will never be filled.
There’s been an outpouring of support in the comments, including one from fellow Bravo star Tinsley Mortimer:
I’m so very sorry for your loss Captain Lee. Sending you and Mary Anne lots of love!
