I am deeply sorry that we have lost Deputy Moyers! As a current citizen attending the Sheriff's Academy, I am amazed at the bravery and dedication of law enforcement personnel. In my Bible reading today, God called on Joshua to be a hero and lead the Israelites in their journey to promised land. I pray that our Joshua Moyers, our Nassau County hero is encircled by God's radiant love and peace this very moment! And I ask God to shower faith and peace on his family as they endure great grief with this tragedy. We will never forget Deputy Joshua Moyers!

I. Feel sorry. For. The. Family. And. His brother.

Zondra Scarbrough Pringle

I did not Josh personally but he patrolled our road very often. Always with a smile if he passed you and a wave if he seen you out in the yard. Always above and beyond with respect if he spoke with you. A young man who's love for his job and community shown through the giant smile that was always on his face. That will truly be missed in our community. My deepest condolences go to his Mother and Father and brother, as well as his sweet Ivy. May God bless and hold you in his arms as you grieve and process this devastating loss. Many many prayers as well as much love as you move forward.

Paul & Shelly Dawson

We did not know you Joshua, but we are all less now because of losing you. In a world that loves evil and chants "resist" and "defund the police" you decided to step into the gap and protect us from the wolves. My family is ever grateful for you and your brothers serving and our hearts break for your family by name and by choice. Thank you for being the light. We will never forget your name.

Dear Deputy Moyers, Yesterday was my birthday. I was honored to stand on the side of the road for you and cried as you went by. Like others, I cried throughout the day for your loved ones and our department. I grew up in NCSO and my dad retired from there. We are all family, and, in this family, we all stand together. My love and prayers to your fiancée and family. I pray that you rest knowing the watch is secure and your absence will be greatly felt in this community. Everyone here loves you and is so proud of you. Please know that we will never forget you. May you and Eric continue watching over the community that loves and misses you both so much. .

Holden Whiten

I remember Josh and I riding in his truck in North East Hunting Club in Hilliard and we just talked about life and how we wanted to make a difference in this world. Josh told me that day that he wanted to be a police officer so that he could help people and I think we would all agree that he did just that! Fly High brother!

Christina Crowder

I have never met Deputy Moyers before, but I prayed for him every day as the mother of a police officer in Gainesville. The pictures I have seen of Deputy Moyers one thing stood out to me was his smile. He looked like he was an amazing young man. Praying for his family, blood and blue.

Tiffany

I never met Josh in person. We connected through Dogos. He liked my girl and we had talked about breeding. Never got the chance to. Sorry I was able to meet in person and go hunting with you. You seemed like a great person and your upbeat and friendly nature was something truly lacking in the breed community. I wish your love ones comfort and peace as I know your loss will be something they never get over.

Mike McCormack

Josh, what I will remember most about you is your smile! I don’t recall a time where you weren’t smiling. You had such a huge heart, I’m sad my kids won’t get to grow up with you in their lives but I’m glad they will have the memories of Christmas Eves and you lighting up the police lights and sirens for them. Rest In Peace my friend, I will miss you more than I would have ever known. I looked forward to many years of growing older with you and Ivey and your future family, what an amazing father you would have been. So sad and so tragic, I can’t make sense of it, you were truly one of the good guys.

Janet Jones

My thoughts and prayers are with you. God has called his newest Angel home.

Jacob Ladson

Moyers will always be remembered for being an amazing guy. I enjoyed the times spent working with him. He was always fun to cut up with in the sally port. He was always respectful to those he arrested and I believe he made a big impact on the lives of others. His smile was contagious. He was a great man and he will be missed.

I'm a past Commander of the Fernandina Beach Police Auxiliary Corps (PAC) and a Retired FB Police (Res) Officer. Back in 2012, it was my pleasure to have Josh join PAC.

Deputy Joshua Joseph Moyers

2021-09-26

Deputy Sheriff Joshua Joseph Moyers, 29, passed away Sunday, September 26, 2021 at UF Health in Jacksonville.

Born in Jacksonville, Josh was a son of Tim and Brenda Davis Moyers. His parents brought him home from the hospital to Nassau County and it was his home for all of his years.

Josh was a 2010 graduate of Hilliard Middle-Senior High School. Always one to set goals and pursue them with hard work and discipline, he continued his education at St. Johns River State College where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Safety. He was proud of his career with the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office and eagerly put on his NCSO uniform each day as he served his community.

Josh was a loving and incredible young man with a servant’s heart. The discipline and character that were his trademarks were exampled throughout his life. He always strived for perfection in everything he did. Whether it was his service as a Deputy Sheriff or as a son, brother or fiancé, Josh made his best effort. It is said of Josh he had the ability to “fight the battle of Jericho” because he was so intent and dedicated to his purpose, then “the walls would come tumbling down”.

He was a smart, kind and loving person who always tried to help anytime he could. He could light up a room with is sense of humor. If his family needed something he would make it happen. He enjoyed surprising the ones he loved with gifts and acts of kindness. Josh had the unique quality of being able to make a special occasion even more special by his thoughtfulness and desire to make others happy.

A true “Country Boy” Josh loved the outdoors. He especially loved hunting. His passion was hunting wild hogs with dogs. As in the rest of his life he was even dedicated in the woods.

He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Joseph Lester and Delores Davis and his paternal grandparents, Davie B. and Sally Moyers.

Josh leaves behind his parents, Tim and Brenda Moyers of Hilliard; his brother, Jordan Moyers of Broomfield, CO; his fiancé’, Ivy Carter of Callahan, his Papa Dickie Davis of Hilliard as well as a large extended family of Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.

Services to remember and celebrate his life will be held Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 12:00 PM at First Baptist Church Callahan. The family will receive friends from 10:00 AM until the hour of the service.

He will be laid to rest with full honors at Oakwood Cemetery in Hilliard.
