Justin Shane Fultz, age 33; left this world on April 19, 2021. Born on August 6,1987 in Virginia Beach, VA to Karen (Workman) Fultz and Shane Fultz; Justin's affinity to all-things sports blossomed at a young age. A gifted athlete himself, Justin (affectionately known to many as "Ethie") rose to prominence as a basketball star at Ripley High School, leading his squad to the district championship in 2004. After graduating in 2005, Justin would go on to serve 6 years in the United States Navy while simultaneously earning his BA in business.
Quick to crack a joke, always dressed to impress and easy on the eyes (with a million-dollar smile to boot) Justin never met a stranger. A sports aficionado in his own right, Justin relished big-game gatherings often donning his favorite player's jersey, even if they weren't playing. But his most prized possession, after his beloved fur baby Naomi of course, was his unrivaled Air Jordan shoe collection that would make the GOAT himself envious.
Throughout his 33 years Justin demonstrated an uncanny ability to foster relationships with people from all walks of life and though he was taken from this world much too soon those memories will live on forever. Justin adored his sister Holli and their bond was unbreakable there wasn't anything the two of them wouldn't do for one another.
He is survived by his mother, father, sister Holli, grandparents Walter and Linda Hampton, and Bruce and Arlene Crum who were his second parents as well as his aunt and uncle.
A Celebration of Life will be held in August. Details to follow.
Cahall Funeral Home in Ripley, Ohio is serving the family.
