JUSTIN LaBERGE  

Born on March 4, 1980 in Portland, Maine, passed away in the presence of his wife on the evening of March 7, 2018 of an unexpected pulmonary embolism.
Justin was born to Kim Marie Dean and Steven LaBerge, and raised in South Portland, Maine. Justin lost his mother, whose work inspired him to pursue public relations, in 1993 due to complications related to AIDS. He studied political sciences and communications at the University of Southern Maine and then the University of Kansas. In 2009, Justin met Elizabeth, and they were married in 2012. Justin cherished his wife and always spoke of her with pride and love.
In 2015, Justin started his "dream job" managing communications for senior leadership at NRECA, where he grew his passion for the cooperative movement and quickly made a home for himself among its members. Justin will be remembered as a proud Mainer, loving son, brother and husband, and as a funny, passionate, sensitive, curious and brilliant force in the lives of those who knew him.
Justin is survived by his wife, Elizabeth LaBerge and her family; his father, Steven LaBerge and his wife, Michelle LaBerge; his step-father Paul Smith and his wife, Sue Smith; his brothers, Timothy LaBerge, Matthew LaBerge, and Alexander Smith; and numerous friends in Maine, Washington, DC, and across the country.
A memorial service will be held at Cunningham Turch Funeral Home, 811 Cameron Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314 on Saturday, March 24 at 4 p.m., with a reception to follow. A second service will be held in Maine in the fall.
