Below Deck’s Captain Lee Rosbach has had a hard year. Last year around this time he lost his son, Joshua, way too soon, to a battle with addiction. He recently shared some sweet reflections on Instagram about Joshua’s passing a year later. On top of this painful tragedy, the captain’s identity was recently stolen. Apparently, scammers were attempting to extort money from people applying for cruise liner positions and used his name.
Days after this scam was exposed, another a**hole (Captain Lee’s words) assumed his identity to exploit the death of his son. Who does that? The captain excoriated the impersonator on social media, ending his outcry with, “sleep well tonight.” Seriously, why do something so disgusting? And to this man, who would no doubt crush you if he ever saw you? Needless to say, Captain Lee is going through it and fans will be happy to see him doing something meaningful for himself.
Captain Lee just shared with fans on Instagram that he is honoring Joshua with a tattoo. The caption reads, “getting started at High Spirits Tattoo with the man Darrien.” He also shared with followers that, “I’ll keep y’all posted as we move along.”
The tattoo is of Joshua’s face and it’s on Lee’s chest. Underneath the tattoo of Joshua are the words, “where’s Josh?” So far, the tattoo artist is doing a great job because the tattoo looks just like the picture of Joshua that Lee posted in his tribute last year. Whether you like tattoos or not, the gesture is touching. Like a fan wrote in the comments, Joshua will be “always close to his heart.”
Captain Lee joins other Bravolebrities, like Scheana Marie, who also recently got a tattoo to honor the child she lost. My heart goes out to the Captain and his family. Hopefully, he can have some peace the rest of this year and those scammers get what’s coming.
