THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The wife of a Thomasville man who was killed during a work related accident is remembering her husband.

It's been just days since Anastasia Fulghum lost her husband and best friend of nearly 10 years.  

"He was a family man, he was a hard worker, he loved softball. He was a good Godly man," said Anastasia Fulghum.    

31-year-old Joshua Fulghum died last Thursday after accidentally slipping into an auger while sweeping seeds inside a silo at the Southwest Georgia Ethanol Plant just outside of Pelham. That day his cousin was suppose to pick him up from work to prepare for an upcoming softball tournament.    

"He would've been home about three thirty and when he didn't come home I started calling him and he didn't answer," said Fulghum.  

She made a phone call to the plant, and that's when they broke the news of his death to her.

"That's the worst thing you could ever think of. I mean he's only 31, I'm 28 you're not supposed to be widowed at 28," said Fulghum.  

Fulghum leaves behind four children. The youngest is just four months old. Anastasia says family meant everything to her husband, and he always put them first. He even got out of the Army to take care of his ill father.  

"He always said that he wanted people to remember that he was a good man. He was a hard worker and he loved his family," said Fulghum.  

She says the outpouring of support from her friends, family and his co-workers has been overwhelming. Right now she's focusing on staying strong for the sake of her children.

Joshua Fulghum's funeral was today in Camilla. The family is asking for help to pay for his headstone.

If you'd like to help you can send your donations to the Parker-Bramlett Funeral Home in Camilla at 410 E Broad Street or give them a call at 229-336-5111.
