Justin 225x300 Tragedy strikes Shrewsbury.... Shrewsbury Massachusetts

SHREWSBURY – A tragic motorcycle accident claimed the life today of one of the nicest young men we know, Justin Onorato, of Boylston Circle in Shrewsbury. Justin was 25 years old, and a graduate of Shrewsbury High School, and Bentley College.  He is survived by his parents Gary and Susan, and his brothers Sam and Greg.

We came to know Justin over the years through many different venues.  He was a fantastic athlete, but more importantly was a kind human being who served as a great role model for others, including his years as a counselor at Dean Park camp where he worked with my two younger sons over the course of several summers.  Even outside of camp, he would come by in his Jeep visiting my neighbors who he was good friends with, and take time to chat with my boys, who both looked up to him.   He was a big guy, with an even bigger heart, and he will be deeply, deeply missed by those who knew and loved him.

    …..and the old guy will will say ” Oh, I never saw him “, the police will say ” okay, be more careful next time . ” and other driver will get away with vehicular homicide. t And the whole biker community mourns another needless death. Drive poorly, don’t pay attention, cut off a biker , say I didn’t see him, get a slap on the wrist.

    It has got to change, I have lost too many friends, my heart bleeds for your family.

    Rest in Peace Justin.
