Justin Allen Hein, age 27, died on Jan. 15, 2021 in Maricopa, Ariz. He was born on Nov. 23, 1993, in Milwaukee, the son of Mark and Julia (Zacharias) Hein.
Justin Allen Hein was a son, brother and friend. Justin's life was taken in a senseless act of violence that we may never understand. Justin was 27 years old. He was a kind and loving man. He loved his parents, siblings, extended family and friends sincerely. Justin was the first to jump in and lend a hand to anyone who needed it. Justin's first moments of life were a struggle when he did not get enough oxygen at birth. This caused Justin to have some delays, but Justin was relentless. He was raised to try his hardest and that is what he did. He was a simple guy who loved life; he loved fast cars, campfires, fishing and more than anything just being included as one of the guys. Justin's life ended in Maricopa on Jan. 15, 2021. He was there helping his brother who has some health issues. Justin was enjoying an ordinary day when his home on this earth ended as he was shot 3 times in the chest by a roommate. There was no provocation or reason provided by the person who did this. This man will face the wrath of the court. May he find peace with God so that he may be forgiven.
Justin is survived by his parents Julia (Zacharias) Hein and Mark Hein, brothers Jacob Hein, Jason Hein, sister Emma Hein and paternal grandmother Audrey Hein. He is further survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and great friends. Justin is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Richard and Jean Zacharias, his paternal grandfather Robert Hein and his Uncle Kenneth Hein.
