YEO, Justin William
It is with profound sadness that the family of Justin William Yeo announce his unexpected passing at the age of 37 years.
Justin will be lovingly remembered by his parents Doug and Gayle Yeo of Huntsville, his sister Laurie (Dana) Yeo-Schmidt, brother Jeff (Carmen) Yeo, brother Jamie (Mackenzie) Yeo and his nieces and nephews Cameron, Jenna, Patty, Ella, Spencer and Mason. He will also be missed by many extended family members and friends.
Justin was born in London, Ontario and moved with his family to Huntsville at the age of three. He attended Pine Glen Public School and Huntsville High School. As an adult he lived in Orillia, Owen Sound and Hepworth.
Justin held several different jobs but seemed to enjoy farm work the most. He was a good athlete. He liked to play hockey, snowboard and swim. He loved music and was learning to play guitar. He enjoyed writing lyrics and poetry. Justin liked animals and loved his dogs. He had a good sense of humour. Justin was a simple yet a complicated guy. He did not care at all for material things. Justin had his struggles but given the chance to chat with him people couldn’t help but like him. He lived his life fast and seemingly fearless. Once Justin learned to walk he just couldn’t stay still. Above all, his happy place was always the skateboard park. That was where Justin was truly free to fly.
A visitation will be held at Billingsley Funeral Home in Huntsville on April 28th, 2023 from 12:00 until time of the memorial service in the chapel at 1:00 p.m. Cremation has taken place. An interment service will be held at a later date at Parklawn Cemetery in Cambridge Ontario. Memorial Donations in Justin’s name may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association or Second Avenue Lodge in Owen Sound, Ontario in lieu of flowers.
