Justin Michael Crowley-Smilek
FARMINGTON -- Justin Michael Crowley-Smilek, 28, of Farmington, died on Nov. 19, 2011 in Farmington.
He was born Sept. 10, 1983 in Austin, Texas, a son of Michael Smilek and Ruth Crowley. He received his education in SAD#9 and Brunswick Schools, earned his GED and attended Perimeter College in Atlanta, GA.
When he joined the U.S. Army in 2005 and became an Army Ranger, it was his dream to continue his education and become a police officer.
A charismatic person with a beautiful smile, he will be remembered by his family as a good person with a large heart. He was most content when spending time with his dog, Ranger, walking in the woods, camping, hiking and riding his bike for miles and miles. Justin enjoyed listening to rap music (and playing it loudly), cooking for his family and he was a sensitive, protective big brother for his dear sister, Mary-Elise.
He leaves his loving family, his mom, Ruth Crowley and her partner, Kelley Wescott of Portland, OR; dad, Michael Smilek and his wife, Lorna Smilek of Farmington; sister, Mary-Elise Crowley and her husband, Nicholas Lane of Portland, OR; girlfriend, Destiny Cook of Farmington; aunt, Mary Wight, and cousin, Elisha Flint, both of Holbrook, MA.
