Justin most enjoyed spending time with his friends and community in Santa Barbara. He was a great known football player and baseball player. But he was the most passionate about basketball and regularly attended Kobe Bryant basketball camps. He might have loved Kobe Bryant more than his family! He enjoyed the finer things in life such as dining at his favorite places and designer clothing. Everyone loved to be around Justin because he made them laugh and feel welcomed. Every day with Justin was an adventure and a day to remember. 

Justin began riding his ATV at age two and quickly advanced to motorcycles. He loved living on the ranch and he witnessed the birth of several mares. Justin loved the free air of country living and also the fine living at the country club in Las Vegas with his father.
