Justyn was born in 1934 in Edmonton to Michael and Anastasia Boon (predeceased), with an older brother, Michael (predeceased) (Mary).

In August of 1958, he married Joyce and soon began his work career that transitioned to Imperial Oil Resources, where his 35 years of Service led to a comfortable retirement. He was very proud to be an Edmontonian, and extremely proud of his grandchildren, whom he constantly talked about.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and care/ service staff at Grey Nuns and University of Alberta Hospitals.
