I have fond memories of Justin from Richford High School where he was everyone's favorite rascal. He inspired us all when he came home from Marine boot camp in full uniform. He and my husband, Moe, were good buddies.

I met Judd through my brother John. We met at a nascar race. John always spoke very highly of him and after meeting him I understood why. We laughed and carried on. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
