OBITUARY

Justin Edward Frear

March 3, 1972February 24, 2020

Justin Edward Frear, 47, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, February 24, 2020 in Phoenix, AZ. He was born March 3, 1972, the only child of Evelyn and Gerald Frear, who preceded him in death. Growing up in Phoenix, he graduated from Alhambra High School in 1990. At 18, he entered the workman’s compensation insurance industry as a temp, and made it a successful career over the next 30 years.

Justin met his wife, Elizabeth, at the Coffee Plantation in Tempe, AZ on May 18, 1994. He proposed on September 2, and they were married the following May 20, 1995. In 2001, a daughter, Aubrey, was added to their family and 3 years later a son, Carson. Justin was fiercely devoted to loving, protecting, and providing for his wife and children. He was also committed to living his faith through showing peace, patience, kindness, and quiet loyalty.

Outside of family, Justin’s interests were God, family, Set Free Soldiers MC, cigars, guitars, tattoos, and the people he surrounded himself with who inspired him. He received his first guitar for Christmas at the age of 4, and was strongly influenced by 70s and 80s Metal. Kiss, Skid Row, Motley Crue, and Alice in Chains were the bands who inspired him to keep practicing and playing. He started playing out in Next Realm until he created Tykkus in 2003, one of his favorite endeavors of all time. He played in Blind Seven and Ultimatum, making great music and memories that he cherished. For the last few years, Justin was proud to be a guitarist for Cloud of Redemption and proud to call its members his friends.

Another of Justin’s passions was riding. He became a member of Set Free Soldiers MC in 2012. This brotherhood impacted his life in every way. He was always a man of integrity and strength, but SFS trained him to serve others in tangible ways and grew his faith in God. He deeply loved and respected his club brothers, with whom he shared an unbreakable bond.

Justin leaves behind Elizabeth, his bride of nearly 25 years, his daughter Aubrey (19), son Carson (16), in-laws Keith and Anita Poling, and five brothers-in-law (Shaun Poling, Jay Poling (Melissa), David Shockley, Joel Poling, and Thomas Shockley to carry on – to ‘stay the course’ as he would say. Although we are immensely grateful that we had him as long as we did, his absence will be keenly felt until we are reunited in heaven. You stayed the course; rest in peace, my Love.

I have known Justin, over the last two years, through our work together with ESIS/Chubb and grateful for that opportunity. Although I'm still in shock over his passing, I have faith Justin is another angel, alongside his heavenly father, watching over his loved ones. I sincerely wish Justin's family and friends peace in your heart.

I worked with Justin for many years at ESIS.
Justin always had such a calming presence and demeanor, even in the most difficult or complex situations. It's one of the things I admired most about him - his ability to provide calm in the storm and help me understand, that this too shall pass. I am a better person for having known him.

My thoughts will be with your family.

I met Justin some time ago when our paths crossed for what was a very significant and memorable time in my life. We played together in Tykkus for some time, and our time spent together bonding over coffee, in the garage, on the road and on the stage will be cherrished for the rest of my days. I’m in utter shock to hear of his passing, and I will miss him terribly.

I met Justin in 2004 after moving to Phoenix. We hung out a few times over the years with our mutual friend Randy. Justin was always a gracious and kind person. I always walked away from the times we hung out with a sense of appreciation. He was a great example of what it means to be a disciple. His talent and faith were incredible. I appreciate that I knew him. Prayers and blessings to the family and friends left behind. Peace.

I first met Justin in 2010 as his lovely wife Elizabeth and my wife Andrea had been friends since they were in high school. He immediately made me feel like part of the family. We spent some really good times during that visit. On our next trip out to Phoenix a few years later he called me up and said come over for lunch and so we did. He knew we were traveling without my Harley-Davidson and that is when he borrowed a motorcycle from one of his brothers so we could take a ride together. That spoke volumes to me as to who Justin really was. A great man a brother and a friend with whom I shared the same birthday. Ride with the angels now brother look down on your family as they stay the course. MLLH&R.

Justin was who I planned to be. I just never was cool enough. This guy did everything with his full heart. He was quiet, reserved and a stalwart. I admired him so much. Respect is a two way street and he gave me so much. I wish I could tell him how much I had for him. He was pure metal with a fierce love for his family. When I heard that he had moved on I was incredibly affected. I feel that the earth has lost a human that was genuine, admirable, and real. I will never forget you friend. I will always adore you, and respect the man that God made you. I thank Him for having the real pleasure of knowing you. God Speed my friend!

Justin was my best friend and brother for the past 16 years. There are not enough words to describe how much he meant to me, the impact he had on my life or how much I will miss him. I love you bro...ride on
