Andrew Clifford Justice passed away on November 26, 2022, in Lutz, Florida. He was the son of Clarence and Muriel Justice and was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. He had two brothers, Kenneth Justice (Angie) and Donald Justice.
After graduating from high school, he served in the United States Army for two years, being stationed in Germany.
Upon returning from his military service, Andrew met the soon-to-be love of his life, Victoria Carol (Kaulsky), and they married in August of 1961. They celebrated 57 years of marriage together and were separated only by death when Victoria passed in October of 2018. They had three children together: Diana (Anthony) Balasco, Kim (Victor) Pagliari, and Andrew Donald Justice; six grandchildren: Nicholas Holmes, Victoria Holmes; and two great grandchildren: Townsend Holmes and Pierce. Two grand dogs Madison and Wyatt.
In the 1960’s while living in Detroit, Andrew began working as a route salesman delivering orange juice and milk and continued this job until relocating to Florida in 1995. At which time, he worked in Security for the Hyatt in Downtown Tampa for over ten years before retiring.
Andrew had many hobbies. At an early age, he developed a love for art and began painting. He was a talented artist who preferred still life painting with oils, but also began using chalks later in his life. His most treasured painting was of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane which he painted in 1957. Andrew was also a lifelong sports enthusiast. He was an avid golfer who played on a golf league with his wife and was proud to have achieved excellence with a hole-in-one at Westchase Golf Club. He was a loyal fan of both baseball and football and eventually expanded his allegiance to include the Buccaneers and the Rays after he relocated to the Tampa Bay Area. He also enjoyed playing cards with friends and watching movies particularly old westerns.
Andrew was a believer who faithfully attended church and also made sure that his children during their formative years went as well.
Throughout his life, Andrew demonstrated great devotion and loyalty, but none was more evident than his love and devotion to his family who were his number one priority always. His move from Detroit to Florida in 1995 was to be closer to his children who were all living in Florida. He loved having his family all together. He would use any holiday, celebration, or occasion as an opportunity to gather the family together because he loved them and cherished time spent with his kids, grandkids, and his grand dogs, Andrew will be dearly missed by his family.
His Celebration of Life will be held on January 6, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at the North Pointe Church in Lutz, Florida.
