  • Justin had the gift of gab! There was not many people he did not know. The first time I met him Robin ,him, and I talked for hours and prospect porch talks became our thing. He was a good friend and would do anything for you. He was so ornery and if you ever were looking for something he would know where to find it! My thoughts and prayers go out to you his family at this time.
