It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that the family of Justin R. Remy share the news of his passing on July 20, 2018. Justin was a resident of New York City for the past 8 years, prior to that he was a resident of Westport Mass and Fairhaven Mass where his family and long time friends reside. While Justin fell in love with the fast paced, exciting and constantly intriguing Big City, his heart remained in Fairhaven where he would always return for the comfort of his family. Justin was an exceptional athlete, whether it was basketball, baseball or soccer. He loved being a Red Sox and Patriot fan, especially in enemy territory in New York! He would talk for hours with his Dad about sports and never missed an opportunity to monopolize any television he was near to watch a game, playoffs or just catch up on the daily activities of his passion of sports.

While we all grieve Justin, we know he is in Heaven with his cousin Timothy, smiling down on all of us and most likely causing some sort of havoc…all who knew Justin has a story or two of his comical and/or just this side of the law antics. Justin is survived by his parents, Kim (Pacheco) Skammels of Fairhaven, David Remy of Swansea, his siblings, Kailan Skammels, Seth Skammels, Kyle Remy and Lauren Remy and a niece Kiara “Phoebe” Colon. Left behind to grieve their grandson, are his maternal grandparents, Myron and Sandra Pacheco of Fairhaven and he is predeceased by his paternal grandparents Andrew Remy and Audrey Sylvia. Survived by his Aunts Robin Aiello of Florida, Jodi Gonzaga of Fairhaven, Naomi Imbeault of Swansea, Christine Alfonse, Godmother Rhonda Snell, cousins Aiden, Coby and Blake Aiello and his great grandmother Hilda Jordan.

Also predeceased by his cousin Timothy Gene Aiello, that he loved like a brother, reunited once again.

As i stare at this blank box I just cant find the words to say.. Or maybe I just don't want to.. Because saying goodbye makes it a little more real that I'll never see my big brother again. My big brother, my first best friend, my protector. All my childhood memories are filled with good times of us, like when you and Timmy would have your friends sleep over and I would beg you to hang out and you would trick me into thinking I could but when I walked into your room a bucket of water would fall from the top of the frame. Timmy would always be the first to run out and hug me and apologize and tell me it's just jokes, and not soon after you would follow. And I always forgave you and when I heard you calling me to come back to your room the next weekend I would still come running down that hallway into your room like a bat out of hell just to get wet with that same bucket of water again, because I wasn't missing a chance to hang out with my brother and my cousin Timmy. The coolest kids I ever met, and they both just happened to be part of my family. I was the luckiest girl in the world as far as I was concerned. And I still am. Even though you took a piece of my heart and part of my soul with you when you left us, we will meet again and you can give it back. I love you Justin! And i miss you more than anyone will ever know. What I would do to get another libble or a lobble right now. Or even play Eee-haaa (as much as it hurt) lol You will remain with me in my heart until my dying day and we are all reunited as a family once again. 💔

When we went to Top of the Rock you asked me to take a picture so you can send your mom. I had to make sure it was perfect because it was going to a mom. I wanted to show you all of the New York you hadn't seen. I'm sorry we didn't get that chance. I miss you.

Justin, I will always love you and hold all my memories close in my heart. You were my first "nephew" and the most beautiful lil boy who grew to a strong, funny, loving, sexy man. (sexy was written because I know you would like that!) You were a best friend to my husband and a great friend/cousin to my kids. I will miss YOU...your VOICE... and your beyond fun sense of HUMOR. You and Timothy filled some of the best memories I have when I look back, and for that I thank you both! I will miss you tremendously as I am used to doing now... seems that most of my days missing my LOVE (s). Please visit me... I will wait for you! I forever love you! Aunty Robby Rustynuts XXOO

I remember as a kid just thinking you were the cat’s meow. You always had this bright vibrant energy that flowed right out of your constantly smiling face. And I think that’s what I’ll remember most vividly. You had the BEST smile. And even when you weren’t smiling, it seemed as though your eyes always were.

You had this way of ALWAYS making my Mom and Dad laugh, like that good GUT laugh that’s rare and hard to get to. My mom and dad’s son they never had.
