Justin was always good to my son Brandon Nicholson. Took him to some wrestling events with his daughter. And even got in ring. My heart goes out to all the Sturtz Family. So sorry. Keep you in my prayers.

Justin was truly the kindest soul and my prayers go out to his family and kids. He was an amazing father who loved his family so much and my heart is with all of you during this heartbreaking time. As I'm sure you all know he was truly one of a kind and would give his phone number to anyone for them to call if they ever needed to talk. He wanted to help people and can say that he saved my life not to mention the multiple other lives that he touched. His laugh and witty personality is what I will always remember the most about him and pray that you can have some peace knowing that he loved you all so very much. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything and know that Justin will be loved by many always ❤
R.I.P. sweet friend. Watch over your beautiful children and family so that their hearts can begin to heal
Love always
