Our son Justin was born on July 8, 1996, at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, CA. He was our first child and I vividly remember holding this small miracle of a human being in my arms, awed that we had been blessed with such a gift.

From early on it was clear that Justin had a very kind and tender heart. He was a protective older brother to his two younger siblings, Logan and Madison, and showed patience beyond his years. We never had to ask Justin to look out for his younger siblings. He just did it. It was just part of his DNA.

Justin had a wicked sense of humor that was inextricably woven throughout every fiber of his being. He was quick with an irreverent wisecrack, play on words, or absurd exaggeration. He delighted in finding irony and silliness in every situation and making those around him roll with laughter at his uniquely hilarious take on life. Nothing was too average, simple or mundane for Justin to find humor in it. It was quite amazing, actually. But he never sought to make people laugh by tearing others down. To the contrary, part of what made Justin so endearing was that his humor, aside from being side-splittingly hilarious, was also a window into the soul of a fundamentally kind and gentle kid.

Justin was passionate about History and had a unique way of describing historical events in a way that captivated his audience while informing them as well. And like everything else in his life, it was always told with a rich sense of humor rooted in a keen perspective on the essence of humanity and the odd behaviors we often engage in as individuals, cultures, and civilizations. You would never think that a conversation about George Washington could be humorous. But if Justin was leading the discussion, then you knew that it would be. That was Justin.

Justin graduated from UC Davis with a BA, majoring in History and minoring in English, with the end goal of becoming an educator and sharing his passion for history with younger generations. He enjoyed playing online video games with a close-knit group of friends, building his own gaming computer, and he LOVED his Samsung smartphones–constantly updating to the newer version and extolling to anyone who would listen the latest and greatest features.

If Justin's brain was history and electronics, his heart was art. He longed to be an artist and spent hours practicing and filling up his sketchpad. Like many frustrated artists, he would often feel his work didn't live up to his high standards. When sketching became too frustrating he would turn to software like Blender with which he was able to produce some amazing 3D modeling graphics. But he always ended up back with his original love which was sketching.

Justin was a gift to this world and his loss is felt deeply by his family and friends. He was a source of constant laughter and the world will surely be a much sadder place without him. I hope he has found peace, and he is laughing again, and is able to continue his sketching–perhaps as seen by a falling star at night. Justin, you are greatly missed.
