Justin David Langford, of Zionsville, passed away on May 17, 2014.
He was born in Franklin on Jan. 24, 1991, to Bryan and Janice (Barr) Langford.
Justin's early childhood years were spent in Franklin; Columbus; Canton, Michigan; and Brentwood, Tennessee. In 2000, he moved to Zionsville, where he was an active member at New Hope Christian Church in Whitestown.
A 2009 graduate of Zionsville Community High School, Justin received his BE in mechanical engineering from Vanderbilt University in May 2013. After graduating from college he accepted an engineering position at Allison Transmission in Indianapolis, where he had previously served as an intern for three summers.
Justin, first and foremost, loved life and people. He was an engineer by training and also had many passions: singing, playing guitar and piano, running, rollerblading, cooking, reading and learning. He was always very insistent about helping and encouraging others, humble, and selfless even to the end, as he was an organ donor so that others may have a chance at a longer life.
He leaves to cherish his memories, parents, Bryan and Janice; brother, Kyle; grandparents, Norman and Mary Belle Barr and Jack and Jewell Langford; uncle, Eddie (Vicki) Barr and Kevin (Teri) Langford; the love of his life, Kelsi Buckley, as well as cousins and dear friends.
Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, May 23, and 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 24, followed by a service of celebration beginning at 11:30 a.m. All will be held at New Hope Christian Church, 5780 S County Road 650 E, in Whitestown. Burial will follow at Zionsville Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Justin David Langford Memorial Fund at any First Financial Bank location. These funds will be used for an annual college scholarship through the Boone County Community Foundation and a community project through the Zionsville Parks in a manner that reflects Justin's passions.
