Joshua Dale Weatherford, known more commonly by his many friends as “J Money”, met his Creator on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022 in Ashland, Miss. He was 33 years old. Josh had an infectious personality and a hearty laugh. He never met a stranger and his smile lit up any room. His sweet, kind nature and big heart endeared him to many. A practical jokester to the point of being “goofy” at times, Josh enjoyed all genres of music and was a fair “rapper” himself. He was a master pool shark, a great cook especially grilling and an excellent photographer. He was an above average “conspiracy theorist” and enjoyed doing good deeds for others. Josh was born in Tupelo on Sept. 30, 1988 to Rodney Dale Weatherford and Rebecca Ann Noble Weatherford. He was excellent with his hands and owned his own “handy man” business. He was educated in the Tupelo Public Schools. He loved his family and worshiped the ground his 4 year old son, Barrett “Buddy B” walked on. He always enjoyed spending time and encouraging his two sisters, Maggie and Mary Bennett.
