Justin M. Finnerty

AGE: 26 • Towaco

Justin M. Finnerty, of Towaco, passed away on Saturday, July 30, 2016 after a long battle with addiction. At the young age of 26, he succumbed to his struggle with heroin. Justin was a remarkable young man. His witty sense of humor, irresistibleness, his sympathy and compassion to everyone in his life including strangers, and willingness to help others will never be forgotten. The appreciation and devotion that he showed for his family was unparalleled to any other. His legacy of love, charm, and benevolence will live on in the hearts and souls of his family and friends forever, and that laughter - infectious!

He was an avid sports fan and superb with numbers, which turned into a dedication for sports statistics. His favorite teams included the Golden State Warriors, Baltimore Ravens, and Baltimore Orioles. All throughout his life and High School career he loved to play Soccer and Basketball. He also enjoyed shopping and had a passion for music. His biggest love and joy in his life was his family, especially his brother Carson and sister Chloe both of whom he adored.

Left to keep his light shining are his loving and devoted parents, Steven and Rebecca Finnerty; his cherished siblings, Carson Liam and Chloe Grace; his adoring grandmother, Vera J. Kapustin; his dear Aunts and Uncles; and many cousins and extended family and friends.

A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, August 5th at 10:00 am at King of Kings Lutheran Church, 145 Route 46 West, Mountain Lakes, NJ 07046. Entombment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover. Public Visitation will be held on Thursday, August 4th from 2-4 & 7-9 pm at Norman Dean Home for Services, 16 Righter Ave., Denville.
