We are so proud of the man that our great nephew, Justin Needham grew up to be. He was for certain his dad all over again. Easy going father, husband, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin as well as friend and without fail, steady and solid as a rock. Steady and solid as a rock also defines Justin as a child growing up playing his game of baseball. Always the ultimate sportsman. When injury interrupted baseball aspirations he then decided to enter the increasingly dangerous field of law enforcement serving and protecting us in the county.
Again, We are so very proud to call this man our nephew.
Clayton and Nancy Partridge

To my best friend, Justin, we shared so many memories bud I can’t just pick one. But I can say you were my Brother and I love you. Your body may be a bit tired but we still have you in our hearts. Justin, I couldn’t have asked for any better friend, you always had my back, as I had yours. I know you are in heaven watching over us just waiting for us to come home. I will never forget our time together as best friends and will cherish all the memories we have. I love you, bro and can’t wait until the day I see you again, my brother.

Taking care of Justin was one of the greatest honors I could ever have. From the first time we met and we instantly bonded. He was a great father, husband, son, brother, friend and listening to the stories Everyone shared were amazing. He and his family are constantly in my thoughts ❤️

I will always remember Justin for his tender heart.. as he cared for his children and cooked many meals for my sister (his mother in Law). He was always kind and gentle with her and tried to make her comfortable as she fought het battle with cancer.
He was a gentleman and will be missed in a world where gentlemen are few and far between. RIP Justin
