It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Justin Michael Gipe on April 20th, 2023. Justin was born on February 21st, 1981 to his mother Mary Fleming-Olsen and adopted father Ted Stahlberg. From an early age, his infectious laughter, sense of humor and joyful smile lit up the room he entered. He had a larger than life personality and with that excelled in theater, drama, and speech. Justin passed his love of music, movies, and trivia to his brother and sister. Almost every family gathering ended in a game night. Justin loved deeply and wore his heart on his sleeve. He always wanted to make people happy and to smile.
Justin is preceded in death by his father Gary Gipe, Grandparents Howard and Rosemary Gipe and maternal grandfather Robert Fleming. He is survived by his mother Mary Fleming-Olsen and husband Wyatt, adopted father Ted Stahlberg, adopted child Danielle, grandmother Patricia Fleming, grandparents Gerald and Hattie Stahlberg, grandmother Sandi Gipe, brother and sister in law Luke and Sarah Stahlberg and their children, sister Maggie Stahlberg and her son, uncle Walter Gipe, uncle Thomas Stahlberg, aunt Susan Austin and family, aunt Yvette Davis and family, uncle Jeff Fleming and family, uncle Patrick Fleming and family and numerous cousins and friends.
His passing has left an immense hole in our lives and his light will be missed.
