1984 - 2021
Thompson Funeral Home
136 Center Street
Ridgway, PA
Justin Otto (Oger) Buehler of Ridgway died very unexpectedly on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at UPMC Altoona.

Justin was born September 18, 1984, in Ridgway to James and Patti (Carr) Buehler. Justin was a lifelong resident of Ridgway and Graduated from Ridgway Area School District, class of 2003.

After graduation, Justin followed his passion and family legacy of logging. He worked along side his father at James O. Buehler Logging, then eventually took over the family business.

October 4, 2008 Justin married his high school sweetheart, Megan Bjorkquist Buehler. Together, they had three amazing daughters, Emory Heather (11), Ava Marie (9), and Madison Karli (6). Who all loved him beyond measure. Out of all of his successes in life, his children were his greatest.

Justin was an avid outdoorsman. If he wasn't in the woods logging and admiring timber, he was there hunting. He loved spending time at the family cabin surrounded by family and friends. Although, making it extremely difficult, his injury never stopped him from doing what he enjoyed.

Justin was a member of the Ridgway Moose, Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Shaft Driven Archery Club.

In addition to his wife, children, and parents, Justin is survived by two sisters: Leanne (Jeffrey) Nelson of Powell, OH and Jamie (Chris Bowers) Buehler of St Marys; Six nephews, whom he thought of as his own sons: Alex Armanini, Michael Armanini, and Ryan Armanini, Evan Nelson, Carter Nelson, and Braxton Nelson. One Niece: Lillian Nelson; Step Nephew and Niece Ely and Kendall Bowers; His Grandmother: Carolyn Carr; and several aunts and uncles.

He is preceded in death by a dear sister: Heather Armanini; grandfather: Raymond Carr; and grandparents: James and Judy Buehler; and Father-in-Law: Karl Bjorkquist.

Justin's relationships carried him through some extremely difficult times in his life. He had too many friends to mention that were supportive for he and Megan every day. He was an amazing presence to have. Always the one to crack the first joke and make people smile.

Family and close friends will be received for a Celebration of Life at the Flying Dove Ranch on Sunday, September 26, 2021 at 5 pm. Officiating will be Rev. Erik Hart, Pastor of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church and Pastor Ronald L. Burkett of the Hallton Church.
