Justin Daniel Stockman was born on September 11, 1977 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the child of loving parents Bruce and Patricia Stockman. Justin was the oldest of 3 children and also the biggest! Justin and his family settled down in Prior Lake, Minnesota in 1990. Justin would end up spending most of his life in the area. While Justin was in school, he was an excellent athlete. He excelled in football. Thanks to his size and height, it was almost impossible to get past him. While in school Justin and his buddies would often walk shoulder to shoulder in the halls acting as a great barricade! He graduated from Prior Lake High School in 1996 and then went off to college. Justin received his associates degree from Normandale Community College and then received his bachelor’s degree at Metropolitan State University.
After college Justin spent a majority of his career being an over the road truck driver. This gave him the opportunity to travel the country and spend lots of his free time seeing the sites. His father always made sure to tell him, “Make sure you stop and enjoy the places you’re at”. Justin also used his career choice to his advantage, always making sure to stop by his friends’ places around the country to check in on them too.
Justin was a great comedian and always wanted to make people laugh. He achieved this by doing stand up comedy! When he wasn’t doing stand up, he would be with his friends and cracking all his best jokes. Justin truly lit up every space he was in with his jokes and his smile.
Justin is forever loved and missed by his parents, Bruce and Patricia Stockman; Brother, Ryan (Kate) Stockman; sister Heather (Lance) Schuer; nieces and nephews, Hadley Schuer, Hudson Schuer, Grace Stockman, and Tom Stockman; many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and many devoted friends
Justin is preceded in death by his grandparents.Print Obituary & Condolences
