Hayden Lee Justus, also known as ‘Sonny’, served in the Air Force from 1959-1963 & in the Navy from 1964 -1968. He sailed on the USS William R. Rush, USS Bristol & USS Zellars. He loved to travel, play guitar, work on cars, & read the bible. Our dad was completely devoted to his family. He was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease in 1996 & passed on September 23, 2000 at the age of 58. He courageously fought the disease, continuing to do as much as he could within his physical & mental capacity, through each stage of the disease. Thank you for making me & Daniel strong. We miss you daddy.
