Justin Leslie Plympton
May 9, 1989 – September 4, 2016

Justin passed at his home in Eureka of an epileptic seizure.

He was born in Eureka and grew up in Pittsburg, Calif., where his lust for life and adventure began. Always trying to outdo his brother, he learned early how to shine. He made friends wherever he went, living large at a young age.

When he was a teenager he moved to Redding, where he was able to touch even more lives. He graduated from North State Independent High School and finally made it back to Eureka, where he attended College of the Redwoods.

Justin was a free spirit, living life his way – full speed ahead, never afraid to take a chance, always willing to lend a hand, helping others before he’d help himself. He’d give you the shirt off his back or the last dollar in his pocket. If you met Justin, you liked Justin. I’ll never forget his smile, laugh or hugs. He was always happy. He never let life get him down. I’ve always heard only the good die young. Fly free, Justin Plympton! Until we meet again!

He left behind the love of his life, his wife Erin Andrade Plympton; mother Judy Plympton; father Greg Plympton; brothers Joshua Plympton, Thomas Carlson IV; grandfather Robert Plympton [Connie]; aunts Becky Grimm [Dave], Lori Plympton, Lisa Stoker, Tina Bacca, Lastra [Jamey], Rosalie Carlson, Daisy Yaplie; uncle Thomas Carlson III; cousins Aaron Plympton, Nicole Thomas, Nakisso Peralta, Aliviana and Elian Bacca Lastra, Isaac and Isabella Carlson, Sophia Lopez, Alicia, Shadow, Woodsey, Keith and Anthony Carlson.

He was welcomed home by his grandmothers Joan Plympton and Alicia Carlson; uncle Jeff Plympton; great-aunt Betty Hytken and Bebe Lara; great-uncle Christopher Villa and cousin Jamey Lara.

Burial at Sunrise Cemetery, September 17 at 1 p.m. Celebration of life to follow at the Aquatic Center in Eureka.
