Justin Darnell Buggs was born on As a youth Justin was baptized and raised up in Christ Southern Mission Baptist Church.
Briefly when his father relocated to Kansas City, Justin attended the Longview Elementary School. After relocation back to St. Louis, MO he attended St. Louis Public Schools. His favorite subject in school was Math and he tutored other students in this subject. He also attended Harris Stowe State College.
Justin was a very energetic child growing up and loved spending time and having fun with his siblings and cousins. He was active from a youth in sports. He played football, baseball, basketball and bowling. Football was his go to sport. He was a running back and defensive end for Matthew Dickey's Football league. This skill and love of football carried over into high school at Mehlville Sr. High and Beaumont High Schools. During his last two years of high school playing football for Beaumont H.S., his name appeared every week in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for his precision skills and speed on the football team. During this time, he was ranked as the number one running back.
He worked various jobs in construction and warehouse as a laborer.
Adding to Justin's legacy and lineage are two beautiful children whom he dearly loved. With Ashley Criss he has a son, Jaylyn, and with Angelica Scales he has a daughter, Ariyah. Because of his two children, his lineage will carry on.
