Justin Everett

Marine Sgt. Justin Everett, age 33, died on February 22, 2012, near Yuma, Arizona. 

Two helicopters were flying in a remote area of the 1.2 million-acre Yuma Training Range Complex as part of a training exercise, when they collided, killing 7 men aboard.

Justin was a helicopter pilot. He had been a Marine for a decade and had served two tours in Iraq. He was slated to deploy to Afghanistan in July.

Justin was from Fresno, California and was a graduate of Reedley High School in 1996. 

He was very involved in the youth ministry at Sunnyside Community Church and was a strong Christian.
Jesus, pray for Justin.  Pray
for his children, who have lost
their father

Friends describe Justin as a really great guy.

Family members stated that Justin was doing what he loved - flying. 

Justin is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his father, James; mother, Patsy; three brothers - James, Jason and Jeremy; his wife, Holly and a 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Justin Everett is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
