Justin Aaron Paisley - Father, son, brother, friend and animal lover - died on Saturday, September 21, 2019, in Taos, New Mexico. He was 46 years old.
Born in Phoenix, Arizona on January 26, 1973 to Jerold and Patty Paisley, Justin was a gregarious child full of curiosity and a passion for stunts of any kind. He had an infectious laugh and lit up the room with his beautiful smile. He was a shy child and teenager who made few friends but those friends he did make were gifted his unconditional love.
Justin's family relocated to Aurora, Colorado where he spent most of his childhood. As a teenager and young adult, Justin struggled with mental health issues which he held close. Only a very few understood those struggles and mourned deeply for him through a difficult life.
Justin would tell you that one of his most important achievements in his life was raising a young daughter, Jasmine on his own.
As an adult, Justin continued to struggle with his worsening mental health issues and a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). With the loving help of friends, his girlfriend Cherie and his daughter, he was able to cope while being passionate about building a good life and his career. Justin's love for animals and elderly people will never be forgotten. He would often spend time during the week stopping by to say hi to previous elderly clients because he didn't want them to go weeks without a visitor.
He is survived by his parents, his older sister Melissa, his daughter Jasmine and many loving friends who will miss him dearly.
