Justin you will never know how many lives you touched how many of us OC guys envied all the things you did and the people you touched in your lifetime, as sadly short as it was. For all of us that knew him he was an inspiration from building a jet powered kart, to chilling his Chip using a chest freezer to buying a prometia. He was one of the coolest people you could have ever known and brought some sunshine into your life, showing you all the possibilities in life. I never had the chance to tell Justin thank you for everything he has done for everyone unconditionally but Justin know this, you will always have a spot in my heart bro, today was a truly sad day to hear this.

Justin you are truly a shining example of the good dying young :(

You will be sorely missed, while I realize he died Oct 18th this was the first I had heard of it and needed to share it with you guys. Any of you AMDMB'ers that want to share the .NFO please do!

R.I.P Bro :(

As it always goes when someone passes away at such a young age....this is such a tragic loss not only to those of us that knew him from the forums or in real life but for the country as a whole, i shudder everytime i read in the newspaper if a young person has passed.

Bro may you be at peace now

To your family, you will be in my prayers for strength and serenity. May you find peace within yourselves to cope with such a tragic loss.

To the rest of us, May this remind us of our own mortality and give us a chance to give thanks to whomever we pray to for our chance to be on this earth.

We are all blessed in one way or another.

An update, thanks to Ploaf for remembering his fathers website.

"On Oct, 18th at 8:50 PM June and I lost our 16 year old son in a single car accident. This is one of the most difficult experiences that we have ever had to deal with. We are broken hearted over Justin's loss. He was well respected in our community, actively involved in the teaching of three year olds at our church, ran a successful computer business, was a top student in his 11th grade class and also attended college courses. Justin ran off the road while driving his 93NA automatic at 8:40 PM on Oct 18th. He asked if he could drive to the local gas station to top off his tank. We did not hear from him and 20 minutes later went looking for him. June drove up on a major wreck 5 minutes from our house. The police would not let her go to the scene. She called me and I too was not able to get to the car due to recently having surgery. We drove to the hospital and received the news that he had not survived.
Discussions with all the witnesses indicated that Justin was driving close to the speed of other traffic on the road, locked up his brakes for some unknown reason, slid off the road which was turning right and impacted a power pole at mid door on the drivers side. He was air lifted to UAB hospital with blunt force trauma but could not be revived in their ER.


Many of you may remember Justin from SE2002. Justin was a truly great person and loved his family. He was a true blessing to us and we will miss him."

Poor guy :( I didnt know him or even know him online but im feeling for him. Its tragic when a life is lost so young with so much more to give to the world, I wish his parents all the best I know they will be feeling very emotional and distraught right now and its going to be really hard for them.

My thoughts an prayers are with you and your family, its a saddening thread to read but i'm glad I just said my thing for what its worth. It seems no matter how little you know someone or even if you didnt know them at all when you here of a death it still hits you.

Sorry to hear about that. A little embarrassed to say I don't have a clue who he is though. Was he part of the Seti team at some point?

He was an AMDMB.Com killer frog, he also did some radical chilling if you do a member search here for MyEpoxDied you will see some of his stuff. He loved life :(

Yep it's always hard to deal with a death like that. One of my high school buddies drove into a telephone pole one night after getting into a stupid fight with his girlfriend and driving away angry. He was just 17.

The loss of loved ones is never easy to bare. Those we have lost will always be with us in our thoughts, looking over us as we continue in life until we are able to meet again.

Never knew him...but I think I had read some of his posts...he seemed like a good guy and I bet he was.

My condolences go out to his family.

Times Like These

It is truly times like these that test a person's belief in a master plan. For one so young to be taken in such a sudden and violent way, we can only hope that the powers above have a greater mission for him. Prayers and thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.

Respectfully,
SkyHook

I did not know him but I send my condolences.

My co-worker lost her 16-year old grandson in an automobile accident about six months ago. Tough stuff to swallow.

He will surely be missed,
