Justin D. Good, age 39, passed away Thursday, February 17th, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Justin was born in Exeter NH, attended public schools in Farmington CT, graduated high school from Kimball Union Academy in New Hampshire, and attended college at both Evergreen State University in Olympia, WA and Southern Connecticut State University, where he was working on a degree in library science. He was employed by the Cora J. Belden Library in Rocky Hill, CT and the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library in Berlin, CT, jobs that he loved.
Justin was a gentle soul with a passion for books, poetry, animals and music, but who also had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed the silliness of professional wrestling. He is survived by his sister Katie, his parents Peter and Jane, his maternal grandmother, many aunts, uncles and cousins.
His family wishes to thank the staff on the 6th floor at UConn John Dempsey Hospital, and the hospice team at accentCare, who provided continuous care and compassion for Justin. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 12th at 10 a.m., at Memorial United Methodist Church, 867 West Avon Road, Avon CT.
