"...plans to give you hope and a future."
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of
Justin Tyler Bean on Sunday, August 20, 2023.
Born on May 23, 2005, in Ocean Springs, MS to loving parents
Judd and Brieanna Bean, Justin was a lifelong resident of Vancleave and a member of Vancleave United Methodist Church. Justin lived life to the fullest and wore an infectious smile. His “larger than life” energy and legendary humor will be the memory he leaves behind.
Justin was a Vancleave High School honor graduate and a fierce competitor as he earned his three-year letterman on the football team. Justin began wrestling his senior year and was a proud contributor of the team’s state championship title.
Justin loved fishing and hunting, especially duck hunting, in those early morning hours before school. He loved his brother Cody very much. He enjoyed spending time with Cody and his friends, whom affectionately nicknamed Justin “Baby Bean”.
Justin’s work ethic was one to be admired and he looked forward to a career in welding.
He loved his family and friends big, and everyone who knew him has a funny Justin story. Justin could be found blaring “Weatherman” by Hank Williams, Jr. at a deafening level at any given moment. He never met a stranger, could make even the toughest critic smile and behind his tough façade had the most kind and caring heart. It was even suggested that Justin could make friends with a brick wall.
Justin leaves behind a family, community, and an abundance of friends who will truly miss him but will cherish the great memories made together.
In honor of Justin's contributions to starting the Vancleave high school bass fishing team, one team from the Vancleave fishing team will be randomly selected for a free entry to each open tournament
during the 2023-2024 season.

More than a representation of our majestic country, this eagle reminds us of Isaiah 40:31--But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
