He attended West Union High School and the OVCTC where he played baseball, and graduated in 2005.  He was full of life, loved his family, avid gamer, being outdoors especially hunting.  He went from playing with toy guns to paintball guns, to guns to defend our country.  He was well known for his Million Dollar Smile.

Justin proudly served in the United States Army with the rank of Specialist from February 8, 2007 to April 7, 2013, in the Military Police Company.  While in the service he served two tours, one in Iraq and the other in Afghanistan.  He earned the Bronze Star while serving in Afghanistan and also earned many other medals, badges, citations and campaign ribbons from his service.

Although he was not actively serving in the Army, he had found his calling by working for a non-profit organization (Dancing Sky Ranch) in Minnesota that provides outdoor therapy to veterans, handicap children and others with disabilities.  He was always willing to help and would go above and beyond just to make one smile.
