It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Justin Meilleur; beloved son, brother, grandson, boyfriend, nephew, cousin, and friend to so many.
Justin wasn’t given the time to do all he had planned, but the pages of his life are filled with his contagious laughter, love of life, and fun shared with the countless people who care about him. He was absolutely one of a kind, with enough charisma and personality to be the life of any party. It was important to him that others have as much fun as he did, and he had an almost magical way of pulling you into his world. Everyone who knew him was better for it, and we remember him lovingly for the joy he brought to all of our lives.
Justin was an accomplished ski racer, who loved to push the limits. His fearless enthusiasm and talent led him to compete among the world’s elite junior racers. He experienced similar successes in baseball where his team won a provincial championship. Those who were fortunate enough to be on a team with Justin won’t soon forget the experience – his comedy and antics generating innumerable stories that will be told for years to come. He also had a passion for golf, where his natural ability and lighthearted nature made him a pleasure to play with.
The story and legend of Justin cannot be summed up in these words. He was a complex person, whose outward toughness was belied by his generous, loyal, and caring nature. Justin lived life to the absolute fullest with a vibrancy and style that only he could deliver. He loved his friends and family dearly, and wanted all the times shared with them to be memorable. Each of us had unique and enduring experiences with him that will be cherished, and remembered with the laughter and cheer that characterized Justin’s life. It is in that spirit that we invite you to celebrate a life well-lived, by the person we all loved.
