He was on the Honor Roll and in academically gifted classes in school. When not in school or working, his free time was spent riding his four-wheeler through the woods in Rockwell, skateboarding and jumping ramps, tormenting his little sister, or driving all over Rowan County in his favorite Mustang.Justin lived life wide open and had many adventures. His favorite thing was spending time with his son, Corban, whether in the garage spray painting all his mother’s gardening tools or clearing a path through the woods with a machete, Corban by his side. He also loved working on cars, trucks, and bikes, seeing how much he could lift or lower them, racing remote control cars, or just hanging out with family and friends.Justin loved music and was always singing around the house. He had a sweet-tooth and ate lots of Spree and Sweetarts candy, cookie dough ice cream, and S’mores cereal. He had a wicked sense of humor and loved to make you laugh.
