I'm a 2006 Alum from Ridgewood. Justin was my biology teacher and the best teacher I've ever had. I was lucky enough to be his aid my senior year. I even bought him a beta fish for his birthday my sophomore year! You were an amazing teacher and even better person. Always there to help and always had a smile. I cannot believe you're gone, and more so I'm sad I just now found out. I would have attended the services to give my condolences in person. You will be and are always missed and remembered.

Anne, Mr. and Mrs. Kunick,
I remember Coach's first day as a teacher at Ridgewood as he was introduced to us by a fellow teacher. As I near my graduation in Elementary Ed, I hope that I can become the type of teacher and mentor that Coach was, and still will be to his students and players. He made a difference in my brother's life as I know he did the rest of the team. Having had him as a coach for four years and a teacher, I am sure that AJ has learned many life lessons as he looked up...

Coach Kunick,
I wish I would've been able to see you just one more time. You are and will always be an inspiration to me and so many others. You were an amazing teacher to me at Ridgewood. You have impacted my life as a teacher and as a person. Until we meet again...

Coach Kunick You will be missed forever, without a doubt. Your service was amazing, and I know you'd be so proud of the turnout. Rise Above.

Dear Justin,
It was so amazing to see you again today my friend, even know it was only your body, I felt you there. It was great to see your amazing family and to meet your wife as well. I loved seeing your parents again, they are unbelievably great. I wish we could have spent time together these past years. I just hope that when my time comes, that God judges me as a fraction of the person that you have always been. When that happens, I will see you again because I know you will be the...

My prayers go to the family and friends of a wonderful man. God called home someone who touched so many.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Having a friend like Justin only comes once in a lifetime. I will miss him so much and never forget the good times that we shared. He will always be in my heart. I know he's in a better place now, but it is such a great loss for everyone who loved him & knew him.
