He passed away just as he lived. He was a gentle soul, wouldn't harm a fly. He was a hard worker, a loyal friend, but always knew something was different about him. He was a self taught piano player, musician, poet, and philosopher. I know he is in a better place and he is looking down on us all.

Justin Allen
Justin Allen
Class of 1992
(Passed date unknown)
Justin passed away the fall of 1993 from complications due to Muscular Dystrophy.

Whenever we got together we (the cousins) would play softball always making sure Justin played a part in our games. He was the side-line-coach, calling the plays, the outs and any other advice. We loved him dearly and he is missed!! I thank God for the opportunity to have known him.

He always had a smile on his face - I loved his spirit.

We will see him again for when you're a believer in God it's not a Good-Bye, it's a See-Ya Later.
