Mr. Justin Allen Davenport, age 37, of Epworth, finished his battle with Frontotemporal Degeneration Dementia February 2, 2021, at his home surrounded by his family and the love of God.
He fought a war for the past several years that no one knew the depths of but him. Because of Jesus, he won the most important battle of this war when he took his last breath and immediately arrived in Paradise. Justin was born September 13, 1983, in Copperhill.
Justin was a member of The Branch Baptist Church and loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. Today, Justin is heading to the woods again with a new and glorified body dressed in camouflage with a sweet smile on his face.
Justin was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, Milton and Anne Davenport; and maternal grandfather, Ted Ledford.
Survivors include his children and their mother, Haley Grace Davenport, Ruthie Mae Davenport and Jennifer Davenport; parents, Rev. Wesley and Robin Davenport; sister and brother-in-law, Julia and Justin Monteith; maternal grandmother, Wanda Ledford Russell; maternal great-grandmother, Katherine Hughes; niece, Caroline Monteith; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and other relatives and friends.
