Justin never met a stranger; he always had a kind word to share. The Lord gave Justin the knowledge to help others through his ability of auto mechanics. At an early age he was in the backyard tearing apart engines and helping his PawPaw Elmer. He loved working on cars and helped so many with his hands, he would never charge anyone. Justin was an avid Duke Fan! and a fisherman (always trying to snag a bigger one each time).
