Justin was born on October 3, 2005 in Lincoln County, TN to Richard Lee and Megan Holley Taylor. Playing football for Flintville and Fayetteville Junior Pro was his passion. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing video games and hoped to some day be a YouTube vlogger. He was very loving, caring and always giving to others. Justin was always giving to others and in that spirit his last contribution to this world was the gift of life being a Tennessee Organ Donor. Justin passed away on April 20, 2019 at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by two younger brothers, Timothy and Christopher Taylor; grandparents, Audera and Lee Hardy, Roger and Susan Holley, and Richard and Barbara Taylor; great-grandmother, Aldene Bramlett; uncles, Max, Mason and Marshall Holley and Randy Helton; aunt, Winter Schwartz; and great-uncle, Bobby Gene Taylor.
