Montville - Justin Thomas Edwards was born in Norwich, on Nov. 19, 1994, and he entered into eternal peace with his God on July 14, 2012.
He graduated from Montville High School on June 8, 2012. He was baptized on July 7, 2012, at the Seventh Day Adventist Church. His first and only job was at Dunkin Donuts, West Main St., Norwich, and was known to make the best cup of coffee in town!
Justin loved playing football, riding his bike, hunting, fishing, just "chillin" with friends, and hanging out at the pool with his mom (trying to be as tan as her). He was a mentor and friend to so many and helped those who were in need and hurting.
Justin leaves behind his mother, Sue Edwards; father, Mark Edwards; his sister, Katelynn Edwards; and his paternal grandparents, Thomas and Janet Edwards. He also leaves behind several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was predeceased by his beloved "Grandma" Rose Boumenot, grandpa, Ort Mortoro; and uncle, Thomas A. Boumenot. He is also predeceased by his beloved best friend, Buck (his dog).
Family and friends may visit from 5 to 7 p.m on Thursday at Church and Allen Funeral Home, 53 Norwich New London Turnpike, Uncasville.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Justin's honor to the Justin Thomas Edwards Mentor Scholarship Fund, Attn: Chris Contos, 800 Old Colchester Road, Oakdale, CT 06370.
