Obituary for Justin Darren Green

With great sadness, we are sharing that our son and brother, Justin Darren Green, passed away on February 18, 2023. Justin was 29 years young and lived in Layton, Utah at the time of his death. He is the son of Darren Jay and Helen Moss Green of Centerville, Utah.

Justin Darren Green was born June 25, 1993, in Stockbridge, Georgia (Henry County). He lived in Fayetteville, Georgia the first four years of his life, with his parents and older sister, Jennifer. We had great friends and shared fun times together. In 1997 our family moved to Layton, Utah. His younger brothers, Ryan and Kyle, joined the family in 1999 and 2003. Justin attended Mountain View Elementary School, North Layton Junior High School and graduated from Northridge High School in May 2011. He earned his Eagle Scout Award in June 2011. After high school, Justin attended Weber State University in Ogden, Utah from 2012 to 2014 and Utah State University in Logan, Utah from 2014 to 2016. In April 2017, Justin received his Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Music from Weber State University while living in Centerville, Utah. In 2020, Justin bought a home in Layton, Utah.

Justin loved the outdoors and connecting with nature; he especially loved spending time in the mountains. He enjoyed backpacking, camping, fishing, hiking, and hunting with his brothers and many friends. Justin loved to travel and went on many vacations with family and friends.

Justin's greatest passion was his music. He started learning to play the guitar at age 14 with teacher and life-long friend, Daniel Quintana. Since then, Justin devoted his free time to grow into an exceptional guitarist. He practiced, played, and composed numerous songs from rock and roll to country, classical to jazz and everything in between. Justin shared his love for music with everyone he knew. He began teaching guitar lessons at the age of 16 and continued throughout his life. He volunteered to play at assisted living centers; accompanied for several colleagues and students; spent countless hours collaborating and playing music with friends; recording songs and performing with the band he loved, "The Multitudes".

Justin had such a kind heart and a vibrant personality; he was compassionate, empathetic, charitable, patient, loving, and cared deeply for the community and helping others. Justin always worked hard and was passionate about his work. Early in his career, he worked with troubled youth groups and in assisted living centers. Justin then worked for Intermountain Healthcare at Primary Children's Hospital and Layton Hospital for several years. He also volunteered for several years at Camp Hobe, a local summer camp for children and youth with cancer. In the summer of 2022, Justin began working full time at Riverton Music in Layton, Utah, while continuing to teach guitar and pursue his love of music.

Those who knew Justin, know that he is an open minded, accepting, generous and loyal friend and mentor. He was always willing to help in any way he could. His bright smile, genuine laugh and witty sense of humor brought joy to everyone around him.

Justin was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, J.R. & Donna Moss and best dog ever (Dexter). He is survived by his parents, Darren J. & Helen M. Green, siblings Jennifer Rae Green (Michael Ferro), Ryan Samuel Green (Kiyana Andersen Green), Kyle Richmond Green, paternal grandparents, Ray L. & Carma Meldrum Green, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

For years, Justin struggled with depression. We, as his closest family and several close friends, knew and we all tried so hard to help him. He tried everything he could to help himself, as well. It just breaks our hearts. We wish he could have seen the impact he has made and the joy he brought to all the people in his life. We think he knows now.

We wish we still had his love and light with us. We are so devastated. We do feel some peace knowing that he no longer suffers and is with some family and friends who went on before him. We also know he has been in the loving arms of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. However, we long to see that smile, to hear his music and to feel his embrace. We all love him and will miss him dearly.
