    Justin was a beloved colleague and friend to many, including myself. His passing has been a heartbreaking defeat for so many, and my heartfelt condolences go out to Justin’s mother, family, friends and his beloved children. This world was simply a better place with him in it.

    My deepest sympathies to the entire family. I never knew a man with a kinder heart or a more gentle nature. We will all miss him here at school as you all surely will from now on. I pray that you will find comfort in how well loved he is and how many lives he touched in his all too short time on earth.

    Justin was a gentle soul who had a bright smile for everyone. It was a pleasure to work with him for the last 10 years. He will be missed. Justin will be in my prayers, as well as his children and family. God Bless.

    I’ve had the privilege to work with Justin for the years he was with us at Bethlehem. Justin was always smiling and happy to be able to help.
    I was very unnknowlable about the workings of computers. But Justin was patient and taught me lot over the years. When no one else could figure out how to do something we would call Justin. He was the go to man. Even when it was tough to figure out, Justin would stick with it until he figured it out. I always tried to make sure he knew how much we appreciated him, as little as it may be, I would feed him any and all goodies we had. I know we shouldn’t have favorites but Justin was my and the entire transportation department’s favorite. I like to think we were one of his favorites as well. We will miss him.

  • Doreen Slingerland Posted September 27, 2018 11:36 am

    Justin was such a kind, happy person. He was ALWAYS willing to help us out.. We had a recent addition to our staff and I told him, any IT needs, Justin is the MAN. Justin and I spoke many times about his children, and he always had that signature smile on his face. I hope knowing what a remarkable person Justin was, gets you through this difficult time. May he RIP

  • john biszick Posted September 27, 2018 11:37 am

    Justin will be missed dearly, for his soft spoken voice, friendly smile and his intellect! Always willing to help and his calm and through demeanor. I’ll miss you sir…

  • McKenzie Barrett Posted September 27, 2018 11:56 am

    Justin was one of the most helpful people I had ever met as a teacher. He was quick to respond to anyone’s needs, and he will be sorely missed. My deepest sympathies to Justin’s family.

  • Megan Sanders Posted September 27, 2018 12:00 pm

    Justin was not only a fabulous colleague, he was a wonderful friend. Just seeing him in the halls made me smile. I will miss seeing him, the absence of his presence is already being felt here in the halls of Bethlehem Middle School. To Justin’s family, my heartfelt sympathies to you all and I hope you know that Justin’s impact in this world was so very great.

  • Donna Masterson Posted September 27, 2018 12:15 pm

    Justin was an incredibly kind and thoughtful man. Not only worried for what IT problem you may have been experiencing but he would take the extra step to ask how you were doing and make you laugh. I will miss his big smile and the wonderful funny stories he told about his children. My deepest sympathies to Justin’s family and children.

  • Venessa Ingraham Posted September 27, 2018 12:30 pm

  • Lisa Dillon Posted September 27, 2018 1:42 pm

    Sending my sincere condolences to all of Justin’s family and friends, and particularly his children. His eyes would light up when he spoke about them. I would often run into him in the hallway, where he’d give the peace sign along with his big smile. He will be greatly missed!

  • Jeanette Machlowski Posted September 27, 2018 1:44 pm

    My deepest sympathy to Justin’s family. I was so shocked and saddened to hear this news. He will be sorely missed because he was such a friendly and helpful employee here in Bethlehem. He always was smiling and just a happy person.

  • Mary Sheevers Posted September 27, 2018 2:04 pm

    He brought light to my day. Justin was kind, knowledgeable, patient and he made me laugh. Justin took the time to known his “teachers” even though we, often, drove him crazy. He just adores his children sharing pictures and stories with us. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your beloved Justin. Bethlehem was a better place with him in our family.

  • Stacey Ridgway Posted September 27, 2018 2:07 pm

    I will miss you! You were such a pleasant guy! So helpful, so smart and so caring! Heaven has a beautiful angel in you! It will be empty here without you! You leave a big hole here without your presence! xxoo God speed!

  • Stacie Mihok Posted September 27, 2018 2:08 pm

    Justin was a wonderful and helpful person. He always worked so hard to answer and solve any problem that a person would have. He was extremely talented and will be truly missed by so many at Bethlehem. Thinking of his family and friends during this difficult time. He will always be remembered as the wonderful person he was.

  • Cori DiFabbio Posted September 27, 2018 2:15 pm

  • Laura Forman Posted September 27, 2018 3:08 pm

    I will miss Justin’s easy going smile, kindness and willingness to help. He was such a kind soul! I am very sorry to hear this heartbreaking news! Condolences are being sent to the family and loved ones of Justin!

  • Sal DeAngelo Posted September 27, 2018 3:15 pm

    Words cannot describe what Justin meant to me. As our professional relationship grew at work, so did our personal bond. I foolishly thought of him like a younger brother, however, with our age difference and with the greatest respect for his family, he felt more like a son to me. We laughed, disagreed, co-presented, innovated and dreamed about the possibilities together. I not only admired his tremendous skill but how he treated the people in his life. He showed such compassion and love for the people close to him. There were so many stories yet to be written. I am so saddened by his passing. My only wish is that now he is at peace. My deepest condolences to his entire family, but especially to his children and his Mom, who I know he loved so deeply. What I would give to share one more steak salad at Swifty’s with him. I would not even harass him about who was going to pick up the check! You were taken from us way to early, you will be missed JT!

  • Maureen Lewicki Posted September 27, 2018 3:53 pm

    I am heartbroken that Justin is gone. He had talents, skills, and patience with those of us who are not computer-inclined. I will treasure his memory, especially the last time I spoke to him when he passed my room, turned back and gave my colleague and I a ‘fist bump.”
    “What’s that for,” I asked.
    “No reason,” said, “I just love you guys and wanted to say hi.”
    Sounds just like Justin doesn’t it?? May God comfort you all, and fill you with good memories of him. I will be praying for you all.

  • Amy Roos Posted September 27, 2018 6:45 pm

    Sending my deepest sympathies to Justin’s family and friends. He was a delightful person to work with and always had a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed.

  • Sherri Fitzpatrick Posted September 27, 2018 7:50 pm

    It is so hard to believe that Justin will no longer be popping in my office with that mischievous smile; I’ll miss that most of all. He made me smile with his high-fives, fist bumps and sharing about his children. He displayed patience while helping me navigate my technology struggles. He showed me kindness and support during personal challenges. I got the pleasure of watching Justin grow into a loving father, and head down the path to achieving his dreams. Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences. I will keep him, his children and all of his family my prayers.

  • Candy Dolen Posted September 27, 2018 8:26 pm

    I am honored to have been Justin’s colleague since he started working in Bethlehem. Justin always understood my devotion to Apple computers, and he was my go-to person for any problems with them. He was always kind, considerate, and totally professional. Just seeing Justin in the Middle School hallway would brighten up my day, as he always greeted me with a smile and a wave. Justin was totally devoted to his children. I extend my sympathy to them and to all of his family. I miss him very much

  • Mac Carlton Posted September 27, 2018 8:50 pm

    I interviewed Justin for his first job out of college. He was young, intelligent, personable. He was the most qualified candidate who ever applied for the position, the obvious choice. His enthusiasm at work was infectious. His personal connections were fun and professional with both staff and students. He had bright new ideas that changed the way we all did our jobs. My deepest sympathies go to Justin’s family and friends. Justin will be in my heart and in my memory. Knowing he has passed away saddens me. Reading these comments maked me start to tear up. I will miss him as will we all.

  • Kleinhenz Family Posted September 28, 2018 8:29 am

    Justin was a mentor and role model for both of my sons. He made a big impact on many students at Bethlehem. He did great work with starting the help desk. Justin will be missed. Our condolences to his family. We will be praying for you.

  • Christine Kleinhenz Posted September 28, 2018 8:58 am

    Justin was a role model and mentor to both of my sons. He did great things at Bethlehem including starting the help desk. He definitely will be missed. We send our condolences to his family.

  • Kyle O’Brien Posted September 29, 2018 11:04 am

    Justin was a great guy who was always willing to help out whenever needed. He spoke very highly of his family and will be sorely missed! My deepest sympathies.

  • Teresita Barcia Posted September 29, 2018 1:28 pm

    My condolences and prayers to Justinś loved ones, particularly to his children of whom he was so proud. As much as he enjoyed his I.T. position, I think his favorite job was being a father; he adored his little boy and girl. In the 10 years he was at B.C.H.S. Justin earned our respect, our gratitude and our friendship. His positive energy, patience, team spirit, professionalism, his fast walking down the halls, sense of humor, smile, dedication and kindness will be sorely missed. Justin was always willing to help me with my many tech questions, and never made me feel bad for not being able to solve a simple issue on my own; on the contrary, we would joke about it. My heart is broken over his passing, but I am so grateful to have had Justin as a colleague. I will remember him always.

  • Beth Anderson Posted September 29, 2018 7:26 pm

    I was so shocked by the news of Justin’s passing. Justin was always prepared to help me with computer issues and concerns. The world has lost a friendly and upbeat guy. My prayers are with his family and children.

  • Harriet Jaffe Posted October 1, 2018 10:02 am

    I had the privilege of working with Justin for 9 months in the IT department. He was so knowledgeable and always willing to share that knowledge. As many have already noted, he always had a smile on his face. When he set out to do something, he was a force to be reckoned with – you KNEW he would make it happen.

    My deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.

  • William & Josephine Motyl Posted October 1, 2018 11:16 am

    There are no words to express the sorrow we felt at the news of Justin Brown’s passing. He will forever be remembered; too young, too soon. Our condolences to his family and loved ones.

  • Debora Bailey Posted October 2, 2018 7:38 am

    Please accept my sincere condolences. It really saddens me to mourn the loss of someone so young. May the Brown family find true peace and comfort from God’s promise to reunite us with Justin and our dear loved ones again by means of an earthly resurrection, when death will be eliminated forever. Truly, what a glorious and unbelievable day that will be, for God cannot lie!

  • JoEllen Gardner Posted October 2, 2018 5:15 pm

    I was also one of the people fortunate enough to work with Justin. We had our own little “mutual aid society” where Justin would show up with a last-minute request, delivered with his trademark smile. He used that smile as currency (and who wouldn’t) to charm me into rearranging my day to help him with a project, but I was always happy to do so because I knew that Justin had my back. And when Justin had your back, you could consider yourself very lucky indeed. So many of us felt that kind of support from Justin. He was thoughtful and kind and a whole lot of fun… just a quality human being. I will miss him, but I will never forget him. My deepest condolences to his family.

  • Raymond Nardelli Posted October 2, 2018 5:40 pm

    Justin truly loved working at Bethlehem Central. Although he was very well respected by everyone, he worked tirelessly every day to be recognized by his colleagues for his dedication, knowledge, and experience.

    Justin enabled me to experience a successful first year at BC. He was my right-hand man, always sharing his thoughts and opinions with me. His institutional knowledge and comprehensive knowledge of technology, made him indispensable to me, the IT staff, and the entire BC community.

    Justin will truly be missed by his BC family.

  • Eulalee ashaw Posted October 5, 2018 11:30 am

    Bethlehem School District, its students and staff had a great benefit in embracing Justin and his passion for creating opportunities for all to realize their potential.
