HAMPTON BEACH - Josiah M. Beringer, 31, of Hampton Beach, passed away after a long battle with drug addiction on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 on his boat in Kittery, Maine. He's now at peace with his father, Brian, and his mother, Patricia.

Josiah was an avid commercial lobster fisherman who enjoyed spending time on the F/V Patricia Lynn II with his "one of a kind" Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Gauge. Josiah spent many hours in his office, at the wheel of his boat where he captured some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Aside from his career, his love for his family and friends was endless. He especially enjoyed taking his oldest nephew fishing with him. He also enjoyed trips to warm tropical places.

Josiah is survived by his four siblings, Amanda and her husband Rick Brown, Micah and his wife Trisha Beringer, and his twin sisters, Abigail and Hannah Beringer; nephews and nieces, Isaiah and Xavier Jewell, Braylynn Brown, and Azalea and Ezekiel Beringer; his girlfriend Sarah Norton and her son Jayden: and his many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Even though Josiah made poor choices, he never stopped fighting for his sobriety. Despite this disease, JoJo never lost his ability to light up a room with his contagious smile and sense of humor. If you are suffering or know someone who is, please reach out. We want people to know that this disease does not discriminate and it takes over your life. Today's the day, as tomorrow is not promised. Our brother was a fighter and that's how we will remember him.

Very powerful obituary, Josiah was a great man just like his Dad. I know he is in heaven with his parents. Addiction does not discriminate, it is the devil. Fly high Josiah.

I did not know Josiah but my heart breaks for his family. Addictions is so hard on everyone not just the addic. If more people were open and honest about what is truly going on and how hard it is to get Good help for these poor souls who don't want to live this way but have no way out! We need good Free in house treatment and after care and jobs and places for them to live! If people understood that it happens to good people with good families and there is little to no help! I know way too many people and families who lives are effected by this. Please know that we love that you were honest and shared his story as hard as it is please know we wish we could fix your pain and his. May he Rest In Peace.

Thank you for writing such a beautifully honest obituary. Josiah was so obviously loved. Addiction is a horrible struggle, and I hope he is now feeling the peace that eluded him during his time here among us.

This obituary is perhaps one of the best (honest)and saddest I've ever read. It took courage and sincerity to write, no doubt. Josiah - R.I.P.; I hope your soul finds peace and solace now. My sincere condolences to Josiah's family and friends. Geordie King, Eliot Maine
