Justin W. Mills, 33

Justin William Mills, age 33, of Minnetrista, passed away peacefully Wednesday, May 13, 2015, surrounded by his family, after a valiant two-year battle with Germ cell cancer.

A memorial service will take place Saturday, May 23 at 11 a.m. at River Valley Church, 5595 Westwood Ave, Minnetrista; with gathering starting at 10 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to the family.

Arrangements are with the Iten Funeral Home in Delano.

Justin lived his life to the fullest every day. His passion for motorcycle racing, whether on pavement or ice; water sports, and anything with a motor was legendary.

He made friends with everyone he met, and will be remembered for his zeal for a well-timed movie quote, his love of cheeseburgers, his vast knowledge of all things pop-culture, and keeping everyone laughing with his jokes. But most importantly, Justin taught us to love without limits.

Justin’s positive outlook on life was not dissuaded by the challenges he fought the last two years. His faith in Jesus was an inspiration to many, even those who had never actually met him.

He is survived by the two loves of his life, his wife, Danielle, and their daughter Charlotte, age 2; parents Bill (Lisa) Mills, Terri (Scott) Harris; sister Missi (Andy) McKown; step-siblings Kristin (Dustin) Abanto and Ryan Harris; in-laws Mike (Julie) Guldberg; sister-in-law Whitney (Alfredo) Arce; brother-in-law Jordan Guldberg; niece Skylar Guldberg; and many grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents Bob and Jo Haislet; and uncle TJ Haislet.
