March 27th, 2023, a hero, husband, father, son, and brother was called back to his heavenly home. Justin Frank Groll(49) was born December 17, 1973, to Benjamin Reed and Jeralene Jackson Groll. Justin was the third child of six. After graduating Rich High, he served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Mississippi Jackson Mission. He then proceeded to play football at Southern Utah University. Here he met his lifelong companion, Shauna Allen. Justin and Shauna were married on January 18th, 1997, and later sealed in the Logan Utah Temple. Justin and Shauna welcomed 4 children into the world: Ashley, Jaidyn, Karter, and Karsyn. His wife and children were his greatest pride and joy.
To know Justin was to love him. His presence was huge, and his laughter filled a room. He was Christ-like and loyal to a fault making everyone feel special. His love for his Savior, daughter, sons, and wife was evident to everyone. He accomplished everything he put his mind to, receiving his master’s degree in education, scuba diving certificate, and EMT/first responder training. He was a teacher and coach for 23 years and served in various church callings and community services. Justin enjoyed hunting, fishing, ranching, roping, the Buffalo Bills, football, and spending time with his family. He would pull over to help anyone, lend a hand, or be a listening ear. Justin was always for good and changed so many lives by his example. He was the man who roped the moon, hung the stars, and will be deeply missed.
Our family would like to thank the Rich County EMT’s and Sherriff’s Department. A viewing will be held at the Randolph LDS Church on April 2nd, from 6-8pm, and April 3rd from 9-10:30am. Funeral services will be held after at 11am.
