Justin Fisher Henry


 
As a child Justin enjoyed the outdoors and had a special appreciation of this world. As each morning would dawn, upon awakening he would remark, "Sunny day, Dad".
 

 
As he grew and matured, he learned to play and excel in many sports, especially baseball, football and basketball. He was a terrific conscientious student at an early age. At the age of 13 he declared to his parents “I will earn a scholarship – it will be either academic or athletic. Justin was a young man who set lofty goals and seemed to always strive and reach them. He graduated from Lewistown Area High School sixth in his class. Before graduating he earned athletic scholarship offers, settling on the University of Rhode Island for football. Then he graduated from the University of Rhode Island's School of Pharmacy (the first football player to do so) with honors in 2000. For his accomplishments of lettering in football and as a walk-on letterman on the basketball team, Justin received the Athlete of the Year Award.
 
Soon after passing his state Pharmacy Boards, he went to work at CVS Pharmacy in Lewistown, Pennsylvania. He did volunteer work as an inspirational speaker; he coached football and basketball.
 
He always had a friendly hello and sincere concern for all of his CVS patrons. As a co-worker he was a positive, cheering support person.
Justin became a very tall 6'7 broad shouldered, thin built young man. He loved our mountain land, our cabin, hunting, hiking, scouting for deer and all sports. He had such beautiful blue eyes and a nice dazzling smile for all. His big broad hands could palm a basketball, give a warm strong handshake to all he met, cut through the pool water, shoot a great jump shot on the basketball court, tickle his nephews Hunter and Chase, build them a sand castle, hold hands with a special person, and give a helping happy hand to his family, friends or colleagues. His eyes would be so lit up, all who saw him could tell by his eyes, his zest for life and his love for us all.

 
He left our world instantly on August 5, 2004 at Corolla, North Carolina as he was struck by lightning.
 

 
He is gone but his spirit and love have affected uncountable lives up and down the East coast and even some as far away as Hawaii. Justin Henry was an extremely special son, brother, grandson, cousin, uncle, friend, teammate, student and co-worker, and now he is an awesome angel.
