History of Joshua Melvin Folsom Add details

Josh was a free-spirit who loved the simple life in solitude. He spent most of his free time in the national parks, camping, fishing, hiking, and in the mountains. I knew him from 1989 through 1992 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We dated for almost three years. He had a very kind heart and loved his family in Cullman. He spoke often of his siblings (Scrappy, Bama, Jim, Jack, Melody and all---also of his sister-in-law Jenny.) He also loved the ocean and went to Gulf Shores, Alabama quite a bit. He felt at home by the Tetons, too.
