Justin Wayne Lackey

July 25, 1989 ~ March 13, 2021

Justin Wayne Lackey, 31, of Utah Street, passed away on Saturday, March 13, 2021 in a vehicle accident,

which left his family and friends heartbroken. This world was blessed with his presence on July 25, 1989

when Justin was born to Jason and Shelly (Bryant) Lackey in Carlsbad, New Mexico. He attended school

in his hometown and was honored as a graduate from Faith Christian Academy. While this loss is

devastating, the knowledge that Justin accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior and is now in his

heavenly home brings comfort.

Justin was very kindhearted with a warm smile and laugh that people could relate to. He never met a

stranger. He was gifted with a sense of humor that could easily bring a person up when they were down.

He was a hard worker and was always willing to help others. With a thankful and loving spirit, he took

care in creating and maintaining strong relationships with those that he met through all generations. His

grandparents, parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephew, cousins and close friends knew they

could depend on Justin. It was not unusual to see Justin stopping by for a visit, helping on the ranch, home

or pet sitting, running errands, or helping friends and family move or to complete projects. Justin was an

avid hunter and an NRA member. He also enjoyed fishing, camping, riding ATVs, and motocross, along

with playing games or watching movies with his siblings or his cousins. If a barbeque was going on, he

was there! He often shared recipes or photos of his masterpieces that he created with loved ones. His baby

brother, Jeremy, who he lovingly called “Peanut”, was his pride and joy and he loved spending time with
