Below Deck's Captain Lee Rosbach Honors Son 1 Year After Fatal Drug Overdose — and Raises Awareness

Rosbach and his family have continued to honor Josh in special ways. At the Awaken Recovery Center in Greenacres, Florida, a scholarship was created in Josh's name providing free in-house treatment to someone of Rosbach and his wife's choosing, so that they could have a chance to keep another family from suffering the same tragic loss.

The individual chosen by the couple can remain at the center as long as needed in order to complete their recovery.

"Somebody [at the rehab center] got in touch with me because they wanted to donate a scholarship in Josh's name for a person that was deserving and in need of that," Rosbach says. "It was a full scholarship; everything was paid for and there was no timeline."

Rosbach and his wife Mary Anne personally dropped off the individual at the center and got them settled in.

"It was a nice way to honor Josh's memory," Rosbach says. "Something good that happened for someone in Josh's position."

"It felt good and still does," he adds.

Rosbach also posted an Instagram on Wednesday revealing he had helped re-design his wife's wedding ring to feature a heart bearing Josh's name, with some of his ashes inside.

"This way Mary Anne can keep a part of him with her always," he wrote.
