Josh Byrne

Josh was swept away in a flash flood while on his honeymoon in Costa Rica on Friday, October 12. 

"It is with heavy hearts that we have concluded our search for Josh," a statement from the family said. "After working around the clock, our search and rescue mission ended today with the recovery of Josh’s remains."

"Josh holds a special place in all of our hearts and will always be remembered for his helpful and caring demeanor, his ability to make friends in any setting, and his love for his wife, Bianca," the family said.

The family offered its thanks to the local community, Massachusetts political leaders, the Red Cross and the U.S. Embassy and State Department for their help.

Please help donate help the family cover costs for the logistics of a proper recovery and services.

Thank you for your support.

When we close the Go Fund Me, Josh' father, Paul Byrne, will withdraw the Go Fund Me funds and use to help pay for Josh' services and other family matters.
