Hello. I came across your obituary after a random online search for my name to see what came up. Sadly your story was one of them. My name is also Justin AshleyI'm from Chicago, Illinois. As a namesake twin, I'm sending my condolences, even if I don't know who you are. My prayers will be with your family, even this late. They are always needed with the loss of a loved one. Rest in peace, Justin.
Hey Justin, im sorry it took so long to leave a message. It was really hard to find the right thing to say. This week you have been on my mind, you were a wonderful friend, you never really put up with much or even let people bully your friends. You stood up for the people that didnt even know you. Your like family to me. I will come visit you here soon. Love you my brother..
Back at UAF for a bit. Thought about you on the way up. Saw you everywhere for about a week. The other day I found some old facebook chats we had. Even the one just a few hours before it happened. You really did know how to brighten up somebody's day. Next time I'm in Anchorage I'll stop by...say hello.
Hey man grew up with you since cub scout days I miss you a lot man sucks we never had a beer together man you were a brother to me miss you and love you man
Justin, my love. Words cannot explain how much I miss you. It's so hard not having you here with us; you were the one who I would run to with any problem and you always made it go away. You had the best advise and always said the right thing.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you <3
I am sorry I never got the honor of meeting you cousin. It sounds like you were an awesome young man. Rest in peace Justin. I will try to take care of your mom the best I can down here.
Justin, we grew up together. You were one of my brothers. You protected me, teased me, laughed with me, everything a brother does with a sister. You and your family have always meant so much to me and mine. I'll remember and love our childhood forever, just like I'll remember and love you forever.
It's been almost a year since you passed away. It's still hard to believe I'll never get to see your goofy self or hear that loud laugh of yours. I don't know what I would have done with out you as a cousin. I miss you more then ever and wish you didn't leave so soon. I love you justy, rest easy cuz..
I was there the day you were born, the love and light of your parents eyes. You were a bright and beautiful baby, and a bright and beautiful man. Keep watch over your family.
These last few weeks have been so hard on me. I wish you were here to comfort me and tell me everything is going to be okay. I miss your wise words and your hilarious jokes. You were an amazing guy with a beautiful soul who could make anyone happy. Just thinking about your smile makes me smile. I miss you. I love you, Justin. You'll always be in my heart.
It's taken me the last 8 weeks to be able to write something. Justin, I loved you like you were my own and will never forget you and your wonderful, kind spirit. You always shared a hug or a smile and we loved having you in our home and in our lives.
I've not been able to listen to Train without thinking of you and never will. So many 'small' memories have made you unforgettable for Kenny, me and our kids. The what ifs will never stop but neither will our memories of you and what we did share. You mom,dad and brothers will always have an extra prayer each day to help them through and for enough peace in their hearts to smile at their memories.
You have been one of my best friends since the 7th grade. You always had a smile on your face and a joke to tell. You were always there when I needed someone and your family was as well. I hope you're riding tall up there in Heaven, keep an eye on us bud..we need it.I love you bro I'll see you down the road.
I will always remember you playing with my grandson Joey who will be 22 next month. That was long befor the move to Alaska. You are missed by loved ones. We will all meet again someday. God bless you and keep you untill then. Love, Wanda
I miss you like crazy. We had so much fun growing up. I remember every memory. You were a great friend, a amazing brother, and the best cousin. We were close enough to call family. I wish I could have seen you one last time. I pray you watch over the family and friends. Miss you Justin <3
Justin ! I met you my freshmen year of high school I was brand new to anchorage and knew no one of course you befriended me instantly. With your dorky smile. And amazing amount of energy you showed me about south and made me feel welcome ! You were the true definition of a friend and no one these days really knows what it means anymore to be a real friend ! I love you very much and think about you every day !!!! Xoxox
Miss you bud. I'll never forget how amazing you are
You were one of my best friends, in my whole life, you were always there for me, like that one time I was upset over a girl, you and Kirsten both just barge into my house to check on me out of random, I can hear Kirsten's voice now, "ben, honey? You okay?" That made me realize, you are and forever will be, my brother and best friend, I love and miss you bro, R.I.P. Justin Grey Ashley
It's not a "goodbye", it's a "see you further down the road"
Justin you were an amazing guy, both your parents and everyone who knew you would agree. Not a day goes by where you're not on anyone's mind. I remember all the crazy times we had, the late night drives, movie nights at your house with the family. None of it will ever be forgotten. Both your smile and personality were killer and you were there for anyone no matter what you thought of them. You left the biggest impact on others that came across you. Rest in peace Justin, happy 21st, I love you man, always will. Prayers out to the family, I love y'all.!
Sorry it took so long for me to write this but I couldn't find the words to say.. I want you to know that it was nice to meet you when we finally got too. You were super nice and we had great conversations. Thanks for being the person I could always talk too. You will always be loved and missed. Rest easy Justin. I know you are watching over all of us
You must have done all that God sent you here to do. God bless and keep you in His care until your family is reunited on the other side of the veil. May He also give your family comfort and bless them. You were caring, fun-loving, and giving. We already miss you but will think of you often and remember the influence and compassion you shared with us.
Justin, you were an amazing kid full of life, so mischievous, but so sweet. You had a huge heart just like your parents. I never told you but I always loved that you called me auntie even though I really wasn't. To say you will be sorely missed is a huge understatement, the hole that has been left in so many hearts because you are no longer here will take forever to close. Miss you buddy.
Justin, you were a very amazing person. You were there when i needed someone the most and i will never forget that. Your smile could brighten up any room and you could make anyone laugh. You had so much to offer to the worls and the people around you but i know that will live on through all the lives and hearts you touched. You have left behind so many people who love you and miss you dearly. Thank you for just simply being you. You have changed my life and i will always remember what you told me the night i called and asked for your help. I cant believe your gone but heaven now has an amazing beautiful angel to watch over all of us. See you again one day. : )
To Justin's Family and Friends, I remember Justin as a Sub Teacher at South! Oh my gosh, this is most heartbreaking that this happened and he never celebrated his 21st birthday in life! Tremendous Pain in the loss of a loved one or in just knowing someone that I had in my life a short time. Peace be with you all as you try to journey through the rest of your lives without someone so Special and Loved. I am doing the same as well.
You were always beautiful, inside and out. Always made the world look so amazing through your eyes. There was never a chance you missed to make me smile of appreciate the little things the usual person would overlook. I will always love you and I will always be sad for the fact that I can no longer hug you or see your smile. But I will always be happy to know that you touched my heart, and left an imprint on my life. You will make the most perfect angel. Ill see you in paradise good buddy. I miss you xoxoxo
You were the most amazingly akward kid I had ever met. Passion in everything you did and every word you spoke. Never at a loss to share a smile, or give one to any who may need it. I grieve for your abscence, but will continue to celebrate the priviledge of knowing you. Thank you for your kindness, frienship, and love Justin. You will be dearly missed but never forgotten.
My 85 yr old mom and i prayed for the family. May you be comforted by the God of all comfort.
I'm going to miss you pal. You were always there me. I'm going to miss the days where you, alex and I will play nitendo for hrs on end and all the adventures we had on camping trips with the cub scouts. you were a true model to your brothers you loved them and they loved you so much.. you were like my little brother and i miss you man ill see you again someday. until then keep your smile going above brother man
Justin, I didn't know you for long, but every time we talk you made me smile and changed my mood. I'm so glad that I can call you my friend. I know your watching over us. <3 rest in peace Justin
Even though I never was fortunate enough to meet this amazing young man, it sounds like he was sent here on earth for a reason, and saved many from harm.
Now it is his turn to rest and collect his rewards.
You will see him again one day. His family & friends are in our thoughts and prayers.
Such an amazing young man.
We thank him.
Justin I am so sorry we never met face to face on this earth. I will meet you one when Jesus calls me home. Charise & family stay strong god will get you through all of this. Love you all. Aunt Debbie
You were an amazing person and a great friend that I had the pleasure of meeting at UAF. I wish I could have been there to pay my respect to you and your family today. R.I.P!
Sending sincere sympathy and letting you know my heart goes out to you at this time of sadness.. Please know that God cares and invites you to let him help you. (Jeremiah 29:12) . . .And YOU will certainly call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to YOU.
I love you. I wish I was up there for today. I'll be there soon.
My heart hurts but everyone knows your in a better place. R.I.P. Bro Love you always!!
Justin, I miss you and love you so much. You are one of my best friends and always will be. You are an amazing person. I wish you were still here! I wish I could be there for your services. I'll always love you!
I had the honor of meeting Justin while he played football with my brother in high school. He always had a smile on, all laughs and made everyone feel loved. He was an awesome guy, and will be truly missed. Thank you, Justin, for the privilege to know you. I was blessed.
Justin spent a lot of time in my home hanging out with my son. I will miss his positive disposition and sunny smile but his memory shall live on in those whose lives Justin touched. Heaven has a very special angel watching over all of us.
My heart is heavy but I know your with Nanny, Love you Grandson
my prayers go out for you & your family. rest in peace
Shock and disbelief was on my mind when I found out you had left us, I just wish you had more time with us, July 8 2013 is the 9/11 for me, like Roosevelt said “this day will go down in infamy” I remember Freshman year we sat in H hall on the stairs listening to Ludacris's new album, drinking Arizona tea, helping me get through a lot for what I call my quiet 3 years. you had the heart of Clark Kent, and never was a day I heard you tell anyone get bent, you gave me great advice and were a great friend, now im wondering when the day will come when we can listen to Ludacris once again.
You wanted to be my friend when I was in my awkward stage. You brought me into a group of people I am still fond of to this day. You were my last dance I had at my last South High formal. To this day I think you lied about my dancing ability because I definitely have no rhythm. You were also the one to settle my nerves the night I had my first date with the man I am still with today , saying wonderful things such as "he would be crazy not to like you," and "you can always come hang out me with instead." I will never forget you and will care for you always.This world has lost an amazing person, but has gained a beautiful guardian.
Lifting up your family in prayer.
I didnt know justin very well or very long we workd tgether at red robin he was always so helpful n made me laugh always it breaks my heart that hes gone so early in life but to his family n many best friends i will keep u in my prayers he was such a sweet kid he was raised very well very respectful decent boy.

Justin you meant so much to me. You made me laugh more than anyone else and I always knew I could call you and you'd be there in a second. You were one of a kind, that's for sure. We'll finish our conversation one day hun. Im praying for your family, and all the people that loved you as much as I do. We'll see each other again <3
