Justin battled cancer with dignity and grace and was always respectful of others.  His infectious spirit touched everyone he met. He will be remembered for his quick whit, athleticism, leadership, competitive spirit, and his love for family and friends. He was an inspiration that taught all of us to appreciate life as it is, and every moment we have.
