Death – Obituary

Hillsborough High School student Justin Daniel Clark is being remembered for his passion for ice hockey, particularly the New Jersey Devils, and his love for rescuing animals, a trait he shared with his late grandfather.

Justin, who had just celebrated his 17th birthday on Dec. 29, died Tuesday from what family and friends have said was COVID-19 and pneumonia complications.

His funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Jan. 22 at the McCriskin-Gustafson Home for Funerals, 2425 Plainfield Ave. in South Plainfield followed by a burial at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, according to his obituary.

Visitation will be held from 4 to 9 p.m. Jan. 21 at the funeral home. 

“Justin was an amazing young man who was very well loved by many. He was an amazing big brother to his two younger brothers Aiden and Ryder who will miss him dearly,” is written on a GoFundMe.com page called Help Nicole with her son’s funeral set up by Lisa Ferraro of South Plainfield.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
