Justin came into this world with a roar on July 9, 1981, and peacefully departed on April 23, 2022. Justin passed away at the age of 40 after a courageous battle with bone cancer. He was constantly surrounded by loved ones. During his lifetime, Justin experienced lots of love, numerous laughter, and adventures. Justin started school in New York City and he ended his academic career with a bachelor's degree from SCAD and an associate degree in technology from ITT Tech. His adventures took him to live in Manhattan, Marietta, Woodstock, Acworth, LA, and Tampa. He had the opportunity to travel to London, Paris, Venice, Greece, and various Caribbean islands for summer vacations. He loved to travel, ride his motorcycle into the mountains, camping, be near water, play video games, and watch movies and tv programs with family and friends.

His biggest joy was becoming a homeowner in September 2016. It was a place to call his own with his lizard, Stoney, motorcycle, and playing pool and video games in his man cave with friends. It was his place of refuge where he could himself. Justin was a bright, energetic child who always valued family and friends. He was truly gifted with computers and technology. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Justin. He will be remembered for his smiles, laughter, warm heart and the joy he brought to everyone he met. Justin had a spiritual personality that attracted good people to him. Justin leaves behind a loving mother Yvonne, step-father Warren, sisters Jeanine and Lauren, nieces Jakaila and Jeanelle and nephew Jason, grandmother Perquita Woodard, aunt Beverly Woodard, godfather Thomas Dilworth, uncle Walter Cooke, cousins Chris, Ashley, and Jean Henderson and dear friends Ysa, Marisa, Tanya, Shevonne, Josh, Brandi, Clark and Jay. A special graveside ceremony will be held at a later date in Virginia where Justin will be buried alongside his dad.


The family would like to thank you for your prayers and support during this time. Your shared memories, comforting condolences, and kind gestures are greatly appreciated. A special thanks go out to people at Kirk-Rudy, John Hopkins, Emory, and especially Affinity Hospice.

So sorry to hear of Justin's passing. We were good friends in high school and I always thought he was the best guy! So sweet so caring and nice. Smile that would make you smile back. I will always remember him and I hope that his family heals and they are in my prayers. Reply to this comment

I grew up alongside Justin and he was my roommate through college. His loss weighs heavy on my heart and I will miss him. I hope he rests easy knowing he and his family are loved. Reply to this comment

Loss of a loved one, at any age, is something we all experience sometime in our life. It has aways been difficult for all of us - but to lose Justin, a young 40 year old, with everything to live for is so very uncomprehensible. I had the extreme please of being an educator during Justin's enrollment at Lassiter High School. Knowing him, teaching him, guiding him was one of the highlights of my career. I will miss him and that endless smile of his for the rest of my days. Rest in eternal peace my son. Reply to this comment

Justin always had a kind word and a smile. He was a good teammate and a tough competitor. Though I hadn’t seen him in years, I know I’ll miss him. Reply to this comment
