Justin was an all-American family man, He was hard working and loved his family. He loved being able to put a smile on his children’s face and this led to many adventures and amazing memories.
Justin was an outdoors man from his keen fishing skills that he learned from his father “Bo”, being self sufficient with his green thumb to riding his Harley and golfing with his best friend: Mr. Rex Brewer. Throw all that together with being a talented musician. Justin was a jack of all trades. He loved his music and he loved his guitar, it was always near him just so he could put on a show.
Justin gathered friends, not only here but all over, from traveling for electrical work for years. He eventually grew weary of traveling and wanted to be home with his family and began working with Pepsi, which he called the best job he ever had, because he wanted to be home
While his death was tragic and unexpected Justin was at peace with the Lord, even though the pain is there. Justin impacted many lives and has raised a beautiful family with an amazing wife, his memory will live on in them and grow with them.
The family will receive friends from 1-2 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, 2022, at Mt. Airy Baptist Church.
