Justin D. Hossage, age 20, of Sweet Valley, peacefully entered Heaven to be with his Savior on Thursday, October 4, 2012 after a courageous fight with the injuries received in a horrific vehicle accident in July.
Mr. Hossage was born on November 30, 1991, in Camp LeJune, N.C., at the Naval Hospital and was the youngest son of Pastor David and Michele E. Nealon Hossage, with whom he resided.
Justin was a 2009 graduate of Lake-Lehman High School, and was employed by Safety Kleen, located in the Hanover Industrial Park. He was previously employed by the Back Woods Boys, where he enjoyed serving the community and working in the Pennsylvania outdoors. Justin attended Bloomingdale Bible Church where he was the standing champion of the Bible Drills held by the Youth Group.
He was preceded in death by his Maternal Grandfather, Donald Francis Nealon and his Paternal Grandfather, Joseph A. Hossage.

They would also like to thank the hospital staff of Geisinger Health System, Good Shepherd Specialty Hospital and the caring doctors and nurses of the Celtic Hospice Care Unit, located in the Geisinger South facility. Justin's medical journey began and ended in the hands of caring people who gave as much love and nurturing support as can be shared in a human crisis.
