On a sunny Saturday morning, Justin was born to Michael and Dianne Kane. He left this earth in the arms of his parents on Saturday December 26, 2020. Our hearts are broken.

Justin was a beautiful child. He had white-blond hair and big blue eyes. He loved to play with his brother Zach, and together they created quite a bit of mischief. They were the best of friends. Justin loved the outdoors. He was a great skier. He loved to hike, camp and river raft. His favorite place was the beach in Hawaii. Justin had a special gift with animals. Animals loved and trusted him. He was a very loving son. Never a day went by that he did not tell his family he loved them.

Justin graduated from Judge Memorial Catholic H.S. in 1993. He spent several years in construction, framing new homes. Most recently, he worked with electricians at L3 Harris in Salt Lake City. He loved his job there. He was married to Jennifer Penrose in 2017. Though later divorced, they remained friends.

Justin was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents and his uncle Mark. He is survived by his parents and his good friend and brother Zach. He is also survived by his “Other Mother,” Marque Ball, and his special little sister Liza Ball, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
He will be dearly missed by his best friend Lucy, his beloved border collie.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Blessed Sacrament Parish 9757 S. 1700 E. Sandy Utah at 11:00 AM on Wednesday January 6th. Interment will be held in June 2021 on his birthday at Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery. We ask that you please wear a mask and social distance. Mass will be live streamed.

My heart goes out to the Kane family. I have the best memories of getting to know your family at Telluride and other events with the Nash’s etc. Justin was such an amazing guy to sit with and enjoy a quiet moment in the morning while camp was waking up and the world was still for a moment. His smile and introspection were a wonderful way to start the day before the music. Love to all of you in this difficult time.

I am so terribly sorry for the loss of your dear Justin. I had the pleasure of working with him for several years. We had a lot in common and shared a love for the desert. He often shared stories of his adventures with his beloved family in Utah canyon country. We will miss him very much at work. The place will not be the same without him. I hope that you are able to find sufficient comfort and strength to get you through the sad days ahead. If there is anything I can do to help, I am at your service. Sincerely, Jake Murphy
