Obituary for Justin Omarde

The sun rose on Justin Omarde on August 26, 1988 in Boston, Massachusetts to Wallace Walter Omarde and Marilyn Mannix.

From a young age, Justin showed a passion for cars. His first love was a power wheel truck that he used to race up and down the street he lived on. When his cars stopped working, he would take them apart and try to fix them, imagining himself to be a mechanic (like his father). Justin completed his primary and second education at schools in both Dorchester and Hyde Park before graduating from South Boston High School in June 2006.

Justin then went on to attend an auto mechanic school to learn about cars, and then took a few engineering classes at Roxbury Community College. Not one to sit idle, Justin found jobs easily. He worked as a van driver transporting disabled children to and from school prior to being employed with Boston Public Schools as a bus monitor. He later served as a teacher’s aide at the Boston Renaissance School in the South End, where he worked until he became too ill to continue this past spring. Justin had a vibrant social life, and always seemed to have “somewhere to go”. He had a quick wit about him and always had a story to tell. He seemed to love every holiday because it meant he could spend time with family and friends.

Most recently Justin became caregiver to his mother; and in spite of his own illness & pain, he tried to stay positive and found hope and encouragement through his faith. His introduction to the grace & love of Jesus Christ began at home and continued to flourish when he attended Sunday school classes at Greenwood Memorial UMC (where both his mother and grandmother were members).

Justin was preceded in death by his grandmother, Ann Reynolds.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his parents, Marilyn & Walter; brothers: Jesse & Xavier Omarde; sisters: Laveesha & Monica Stilton; niece: Keyla Rochelle; uncles: Joseph Lake & Charles George; aunts: Jacqui George & Michelle Poncho; and a host of cousins and other relatives too numerous to mention. The sun set on Justin Omarde on November 29, 2022. His infectious smile and bright light will continue to sparkle and shine in the hearts of all who loved him.

Face masks are required for all individuals visiting the funeral home and church, regardless of vaccination status. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
