Justin E. Gardener of Fredericksburg, VA died Friday, June 22 at his home. Born in Delaware County, PA he was a son of R. Edward and Kay Carpenter Gardener. Justin was a freelance illustrator, keen hiker and avid reader. Perhaps greatest of all was his love for animals. His family will remember him as a man with a quick wit and powerful emotion. In addition to his parents he is survived by his wife Jennifer. Also surviving are his brother Dylan and his wife Emily Reedy Gardener; his brother Nathaniel Gardener and his partner Lyndsey Ginder; his sister Lillian Gardener and her partner Alex Vidal. Justin also leaves behind his niece and several aunts, uncles and cousins. His ever faithful companion Pete also mourns his loss. Services will be private.
