It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our son, Justin Newell on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at home.

On February 16, 2004, Justin was born in Glace Bay, he was the son of Chris Melski and Shauna Newell.

Justin loved being active with his Royal Canadian Air Cadets squadron, Kiwanis 29 Air Cadets. He loved hanging out with his friends and playing video games. He took time to listen to his friends and try to help them with their issues, despite having issues of his own, for he just wanted to be accepted for who he was.  Justin will be remembered by his family for being the best son, brother and friend anybody could have, for he will be truly missed.

Justin is survived by his loving parents, Chris Melski and Shauna Newell (Kent MacKay); siblings, Brenna and Landon Newell; step-siblings, Kailey and Cameron MacKay; maternal grandparents, James and Brenda Newell (Neil MacCandless);  paternal grandparents, Brian and Pat Melski; aunts, Krysta Newell, Kimberly Newell and Stephanie Melski; uncles, Jamie Newell, Trevor Melski, and a cousin, Madison Melski.

Visitation for the late Justin Newell will be held at the Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church Street), on Thursday, June 8, 2017 from 6-9 p.m. Funeral service to celebrate the life of Justin will be held on Friday, June 9, 2017 at 6 p.m. in Pier Community Funeral Home, All Faith Chapel. Following the service, everyone is invited to a reception within the funeral home reception area.

Private family interment will take place at a later date.

Donations in memory of Justin may be made to Pride Cape Breton Society, Squadron 29 Air Cadets or charity of one’s choice.
