Mr. Wellington Justice, Jr.
A Loving Father, Grandfather, and Friend
Wellington “Well” Justice was born on January 1, 1955, to the late Willie and Mary Justice in Jefferson, Texas. Mr. Justice was a 1974 graduate of Central High School of Jefferson, Texas. He was employed by T. J. Blackburn Syrup for over 25 years. He later was employed by Sunoco for over 20 years before he retired.
Wellington was well known for always having a smile on his face. He was kind, generous and always made each person he encountered laugh. He was a great fan of the great outdoors and a “gamer”. Some of his hobbies include, fishing, hunting, working on his “1000 piece” Big Ben puzzles and his famous Candy Crush. Although he watched many sports, he most loved watching and cheering on his #1 team, the Dallas Cowboys.
Wellington peacefully departed this life on May 31, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Sylvester, Joe and Davis Justice; and two sisters, Erma Smith and Simmie Webb.
Wellington leaves to cherish his memories, his wife whom he loved so much for 25 years, Mildred Justice; although no children were born, they quickly and with open arms, accepted Kitara Jones (Peppy) as their daughter and gained Davisha, DaKyron and Davis Justice, III as their grandchildren; two brothers, Clifford (Joyce) Justice and James “Hal” (Cynthia) Justice; two sisters, Willie Mae Bunner and Jimmie “Tiny” Johnson; four brothers-in-law; four sisters-in-law; four aunts, Betty Lou, Terri Lou, Mattie Sue and Bessie; a host of nephews, nieces and cousins who loved him dearly, especially his niece Melissa who he always gave a hard time; and many friends including three special friends, Jimmy Paul, Jerome Tucker
and David Earl Perry.
