Justin Lowell Rowley, born on February 13, 1988, was an athlete, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, and warrior who passed away Saturday May 13, 2023. Since the beginning of time, man has been intertwined in the fight of good vs evil. Justin battled with this daily and faithfully on the side of good. Whether it was protecting a fellow classmate from being bullied in the hallway, defending a fellow teammate on the fields of friendly strife, safeguarding a family member, brother or parent, Justin was always standing guard, had your back and was never afraid to take a stand. That was where he was content and happy. Out front, taking charge, taking the heat, and fighting the good fight. He could light up a room with his mere presence. With a calming smile and a comforting voice, you would find yourself swept away, wanting to immediately be his friend, his love, or his colleague. A natural leader, saturated with charisma, a keen sense of wit, and a supportive attitude, he was one of a kind. However, as with all famous warriors throughout the centuries, they unfortunately succumb to the stress and strain of the continuous fight and fall in battle. Justin fell Saturday, May 13. Although his body is gone, his soul shines incredibly bright, a beacon for all that believe in good and the light of life. He will never be forgotten and never be replaced. Justin is survived by his father, Kevin Rowley; his mother, Carolyn (Ryan) Rowley-Odneal; his brother, Tyler and daughter-in-law, Maya; his grandfathers, Lowell Rowley and Melvin Wageman; a plethora of uncles, aunts, cousins, and a soon to be niece, multiple friends (too many to count), as well as three family dogs whom Justin loved very much.
Justin’s very special number in life and the number that defined his legacy in football, baseball, and basketball was #24. With that in mind, there will be a viewing and visitation on Tuesday, May 23rd from 6 – 8 PM at the Nampa Funeral Home, Yraguen Chapel, 415 12th Ave. So. and then a Celebration of Life Service will be held on Wednesday, May 24th 11 AM at Canyon Hill Church of the Nazarene, 903 N. Michigan Ave. in Caldwell. There will be a lunch provided for everyone immediately following the service.
