Josh 'still helping families going through difficult times'
A MUCH-LOVED engineering student who died whilst ‘living his dream’ in Australia is still helping people.
Josh Furber, aged 20, from Beechwood, Runcorn, died on January 6, after he fell 300ft from a waterfall in the Blue Mountains, near Sydney.
His family has presented £1,035 to Halton Haven Hospice, and also supported children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent, from donations made in his memory.
His sister, Danielle Edwards, aged 29, from Runcorn said:”I's great to know that even though Josh is now not with us, he has still managed to help other families going through difficult times within our local community.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their overwhelming support during this time. We have been comforted by everyone’s kind words and deeds, from people far and wide. It is amazing to think that Josh has had such an impact on so many people’s lives around the world.
“Josh touched the lives of so many people and we are all comforted by the fact that he passed away whilst 'living the dream' with his wonderful friends.
“We hope Josh will be an inspiration to others and from the many tributes we have received, we know of the difference he has already made to other young people's lives, hopes and aspirations.
“Thank you, or as Josh would say: ‘It’s been sick man’.
