Justin started his farming career with Bob, Irma, Doug, and Vickie Dulmage until his time of death. He looked up to them as his other family and loved to help them any way he could. Justin enjoyed his morning visits with Bob and Irma over coffee.
His dream was to own his own land and farm. Justin worked for the Dulmages for 14 years. Doug played a major role in helping Justin to achieve his dreams.
I was a bit confused as to whose son Justin was, as the phrasing of the articles only seem to make sense to me if Robert Bracken was Justin's father. What also confused me was that there was a double funeral of Justin Bracken and Richard Bracken.
This article does seem to say that Justin was the son of Robert Bracken, so not only did he kill his own brother and Doug Dulmage but his own son as well.
