Born on April 15, 1963 in Hackensack NJ, he was the son of the late William and Beverly (Jones) Justis.
Robert was the loving husband of Andrea Justis with whom he shared 28 long years. He was the father to Victoria Justis and adoptive father to many. He was a brother, an uncle, and a godfather. Robert was a US Army military policeman and volunteer firefighter since the 1980's. He also started the dive rescue team for the Bushkill Fire Department, and worked EMS at St. Luke's Hospital. He was a true public servant and first responder. He impacted more lives in his short 54 years than most people ever will. Above all, he was a hero. Robert Justis gave his life to protect others, he was a first responder and they give their lives to protect ours.
