    Marines & Devil Docs

    Doc & Patti Proutey's son was murdered last night in North Carolina. Josh used to run around the vendor area when they were doing the SNAFU desk in PCola. They can really use your prayers right now.

      Non of us can ever know day to day what can happen to US or our extended Family . When I happen to see about it on face book My lump come to my neck and a sick feeling. One can never prepare for things like this. I met these Folks and Josh at my 1st pop-a-smoke Reunion 2000. He was about 8 and then got to see him a couple years ago as He was planning on going into the Marine's.. We are blessed to have been able to have our paths Cross. God Put your arms around these folks as they endure this Loss. God Speed

Josh enjoyed playing his guitar, surfing, fishing, motocross, cooking, gardening and spending time with his many friends. Fun followed Josh everywhere he went and he never knew a stranger. He was currently a student at Cape Fear Community College and employed as the night manager of the Wilmington Performing Arts Center. As a demonstration of his patriotism, Josh was in the process of enlisting in the United States Marine Corps.
