‘Josh’ Sapp

Joshua Andrew “Josh” Sapp, 31, of Blackshear, passed away Monday morning, December 21, 2020, at Memorial Satilla Health in Waycross.

Born in Orange Park, FL June 4, 1989, he had lived in Pierce County all of his life. He was a 2007 graduate of Pierce County High School and was employed as a plant manager for Alma Pak. He was a hard worker and an incredible husband and father who did anything and everything for his family. His boys were his world and he so loved doing things with them like hunting, fishing, riding four-wheelers and sports (he loved to help coach his boy’s teams). He enjoyed traveling with his family – their trips were always filled with fun and laughter – and he also enjoyed working on his trucks, Chevrolets, of course. He was a member of Emmanuel Baptist Church.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Jean Sweller and his paternal grandfather, Johnny Sapp.

Survivors include his wife of 11 years, Kasey Drawdy Sapp, Blackshear; two sons, Camson Sapp and Caden Sapp, both of Blackshear; his father, Jason Sapp, Blackshear; three brothers, Justin Sapp, Savannah, Tre’ Wright, Douglas and A. J. Smith, Jacksonville, FL; his paternal grandmother, Jennie Sellers, Blackshear;  his aunt, Samantha (Robert Padgett) Sapp, Jacksonville, FL; his in-laws, Joe and Karen Drawdy, Blackshear; his brother-in-law, Tyler Drawdy, Blackshear and several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, December 24, from the Blackshear City Cemetery.
