Justin was beloved by all that knew him – family and friends. He had just become an uncle for the first time. He was a man with many interests and hobbies. He loved his family and friends most of all, but some of his interests were games like Pokémon, Legend of Zelda, and Magic the Gathering. He had many passions, some of them were wood working and gem polishing. He was a collector of many things: collector’s knives, dragons, various playing cards, gems/rocks, etc. He loved building bon fires and socializing with his many dear friends. He loved making people smile, always generous and loving to anyone in his path. He dreamed of being a father to his own child someday, but he was an amazing step dad to five children whom he loved and cared for.
