Justin was born to Janey Lee Phillips on Sept. 23, 1983, in Tahlequah. He was raised in Burnt Cabin area, surrounded by his aunts, uncles and cousins.
Justin brought great joy to the family, especially his mother, whom he loved very much. As a baby, it was obvious that he and his Papa Andrew had a special bond. Justin was often referred to as the "spark plug" to Papa's old truck, because it wouldn't go anywhere without him in it. He also loved his Granny Vinnie. He would tell her she was the best cook in the world, and loved her chicken and dumplings.
In the late '90s, his mother, Janie, married her teenage sweetheart, Jerry Lee. This gave Justin someone he could call Dad. Jerry loved and raised Justin as if he were his own.
Justin graduated eighth grade from Keys Middle School in 1999, and then attended high school at Vian. He often worked with the local farmers and ranchers in the Vian area, building fence, working cows or hauling hay, and he loved it. At his passing, he worked in construction.
Those preceding him in death are his papa, Andrew Phillips; his dad, Jerry Lee; his uncles, Andy and Wiley Phillips; and his very special aunt, Alice Phillips.
Those left to morn are his mother, Janie Lee of Tahlequah, formerly of Vian; his granny, Vinnie Candy of Tahlequah; Aunt Brenda Brixey of Park Hill, and Aunt Sue Ann and Uncle Mike Maxey of Burnt Cabin. He also leaves behind all his cousins, who loved him dearly; and two special aunts, Marie Kelley and Donna McIntosh. He also leaves behind many extended aunts, uncles and cousins, and many friends. We will miss you, Bub, until we meet again.
