Let the memory of Justin "Bama" be with us forever
  • 20 years old
  • Born on July 10, 1988 in Alabama, United States.
  • Passed away on June 13, 2009 in Portage, Michigan, United States.

Justin wasn't known as Justin, He was known as Bama. Let me start from the beginning Bama came from a very messed up family, He moved here to Michigan to live with his sister, But that didn't work out, He had given up on school and everything, Until he met Cory Montgomery at PCEC, Bama and Cory started off as friends and ended as brothers, To make the long story short, Bama soon realized his family just wasn't there for him, So one day Cory got a phone call from Bama saying he was stranded in Alabama, his dad had kicked him out. So Cory and his family picked Bama up from Alabama and brought him back home to Michigan were they took him in as one of their own. Tracy (Cory's mom) took Bama in as one of her own, She bought him everything he needed, Put a roof over his head, Made sure he was fed, and then made sure he went to school and GRADUATED. Bama graduated from PCEC in 2008. He then got a job and kept moving forward, Even tho Tracy wasn't the women who gave birth to Bama she was there for the times that counted. Bama loved Tracy as if she were his mother, He called her mom, and as far as Tracy was concerned Bama was her son. Bama lived a happy wonderful life after he moved in with the Montgomery's. He has tons of friends and family and was accepted every where he went, Something he didn't get from his "family" Bama will always be truly missed and never forgotten. He touched many peoples life, and I don't think there was one person out there that hated him. He was a southern sweetheart.


Bama Lost his life on June 13Th, 2009 to an auto accident. He was only 2 exits away from home when he lost control of his vehicle and flipped several times and died on impact. It was one horrible day for many. He was too young to go, but they do say "The good die young" And he was indeed a good person, He was a wonderful person with a wonderful spirit, despite what his "family" put him through he didn't let that bring him down, he used if for the better and it made him a stronger person.


Bama has many friends and family that greatly miss him. He left behind a mother-Tracy Montgomery, 2 brothers- Cory Montgomery and Nick Montgomery, a sister-Crystal Montgomery and a nephew- Bryce Montgomery and Many Many friends-Some of his close friends were-Dustin Golden, Jared Crawford, Ryan Kirby, Seth Stamm, Ron Johnson, Charlie Ibbotson, Speedy, and many more. Bama was friends with pretty much anyone he met. He was a very lovable person!  We all miss you Bama and can't wait to meet up with you in heaven one day!
