Justin Scott Harper passed away suddenly on August 11th at the age of 39.

Justin was a savant in his trade as a fabricator & installer of marble & granite. The kitchens and fireplaces he designed were works of art. He was truly proud of his work and rightfully so.

A lifelong passion for muscle cars and drag racing meant you could almost always find him under the hood of a car. Justin also enjoyed MMA and was an avid weight-lifter.

Justin will most be remembered for his wicked sense of humor and his infectious laugh. Quick witted with a big heart, wherever he was, you’d find those around him smiling.

Predeceased by his mother, Toni D’Puia Schulze, Justin is survived by his father, Steven (Deborah) Harper of Malaga, NJ.

Justin leaves behind eight beautiful children; Miranda, Klarissa, Justin Jr., Andrew, Mickey, Toni, Adriana, Bradley, step-son Nicholas and granddaughter Lily.

Also surviving are siblings Steven Harper (Jeanette), Charles Harper (Melissa), Jamie Gerst (Ben), Geoffrey Owens (Erin), Cheri Harper (Amanda) and Jason Harper.

Services will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations in Justin’s name be made to Recovery Advocates of America, 2117 Highway 33 Suite 1, Hamilton, NJ 08690.

I worked with Justin at Delsea Marble and Granite and Onur Granite. So I got to spend a good 6 years of working and laughing day after day. Not to mention the times outside of work over the years. He will be missed. My heart goes out to his family, I'm sorry for your loss. Life is short to begin with. It's always hard when someone you care about leaves us earlier than they should. Justin touched a lot of people in a good way with laughter and charisma. He was a nut,lol. Rest in piece my friend. It sucks that I won't get to see you again in life. But I'll always remember the times we had working and hanging out.

My sympathy to Jason and Jaime. I grew up with Justin in Barnsboro NJ.  Spending many of childhood days with he and his sister whether in the backyard, in the woods or hanging and spending the day with them at his Aunt Eilene and Uncle Chip.  I'm fortunate to have had a great friend to grow up n laugh with. The wiffle ball tourneys, the afternoons trading baseball cards at each other's houses, the club house, our ventures in the woods, the list goes on.   I'm glad I was able to catch up with you in the last two years.  Thanks Justin for being the fun, cool buddy you were and still was.

Prayers and much needed hugs to your fam and sister, Roger Charles Hood Jr.
