I first meet Justin when they moved in across from visiting a friends house. He was busy working on the 2 cars to make one good he said. He would always speak and sometimes talk. he was with his beautiful children and their dog too.
I could go on. Thought and prayer coming to many family and many friends, keep him in your memories especially good ones.
I will miss him, and he will be missed by many.

I first met Justin when I moved out to the Ann Arbor/Dexter area. I was welcomed into the home with open arms by both Sarah and Justin. I’ve always felt like family every single time I came over. He was always a great father to his children and good person overall. We have always loved you Justin. Rest In Peace, you will forever be missed!

I have known Justin since he was 15 when we lived in the same area. He was one of the nicest and most polite boys around and I was happy he formed a friendship with my son at a time that was really rough for my boy. Through the years we would run into one another and he grew up to be just as sweet and polite man as he was when I first met him. When I found he was the special person in my cousin's life, I knew she had found someone very special and loving. It was nice seeing him again at family functions with her and their kids. He will truly be missed as he was so loved.
