  • John Barton says:

    Justin, written words seem so hollow at a time like this but they are the best that I can offer. You were a terrific colleague and co-worker these past years. I knew I could always turn to you for help or support. You seemed to always have the answers. You listened and offered suggestions when I shared personal issues, and I never worried that my confidence would be betrayed. You were intelligent, strong, kind, and an all-around great guy. You are truly missed. I know you are now at peace and that gives me some consolation as I struggle to make sense of things. I will always remember you for the wonderful man you were.

  • Terri Cupp says:

Thank you for Believing in me and Trusting me in things you said I could do. Made me hold my head up even higher.Thank you for your Friendship.You were/are such a Sweet Kind Man. Sing High on the Mountain Justin. Rest in Peace

  • Holly says:

    I know you may have thought of yourself as “just the QAPI guy”,but you were much more to many people. You were admired for your intelligence, wit, ability to really listen to others, being a great friend, wonderful son, excellent father, caring coworker, and much more. I wish you had realized this too. You will be greatly missed by many people for many different reasons. I pray you are at peace. My thoughts and prayers continue for your family!

  • Maria Y says:

    I wish I had told you how incredibly kind and smart you are. And I’m sure- a fantastic Dad too. You gave so much to so many; we are all better people because we knew you. Let’s learn from this: to appreciate, respect and reach out to one another. I never knew you were hurting. I will keep your infectious smile with me and think of it when I need cheering up! PEACE

  • Veronica Candelario says:

    Justin you were a great person, you always had a smile on your face no matter what you greatly appreciated our work on Peds and young adults floors it felt good to hear you say as we left to go home after our shift has ended ” I greatly appreciate all of your hard work and efforts today” you defenitely recognized us. You will be greatly missed may god bless you and your family, you may now rest in peace up in heaven.

  • Pat Backer says:

    This loss is heart breaking for me as a co- worker of Justin. Have such good and positive memories of him. His smile beaming from ear to ear his sense of humor sometimes bordering on sarcastic which I love his intelligence but not a know it all. Caring -thoughtful- intense love of his sons. We were fortunate to have him with us. To Justin’s family- May God wrap his loving arms around you during this time. Know that his spirit will always be with you with that beautiful smile. Rest In Peace my friend.

  • Penny Shiryayev says:

  • Polly McCann says:

    My heart will never be the same. You will always be my baby. The joy of my life. So sweet, kind and gentle.
    You left this world way to soon. Until I see you again sleep well my son.
    Love and Kisses,

    To Justin’s family: I was one of Justin’s nursing professors. I loved his sweet spirit and he was a natural care giver. My heart is heavy hearing of his untimely death. I dont know the details but God does. I pray that Gods perfect peace that passes all understanding will fill your hearts and minds during this most difficult time.

  • Danielle Soch Grossi says:

    Justin I wish you were here to give your thoughts and support about this coronavirus stuff going on. You always knew what to do about infectious diseases. I just wish you were here to guide us all. I wish you were here with us so we could lock ourselves in a bubble to stay safe. I miss you.

  • William Renfroe says:

    Brett… I just learned of your passing today (4/5/20)…. Why do the good ones die so early? Brett Boy (as we called you in high school) I will always remember your smile, your dedication to our singing groups (Concert Choir, Men’s Chorus, Madrigal Singers, Chamber Singers) your faith has kept you strong! May the choir of angels welcome you to your eternal rest, and may the love of God surround your family and give them comfort! Rest in eternal peace Brett…. :-(
