Obituary of Justin John DiCarlo

Justin John DiCarlo, 46, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at home from a heart attack on October 23, 2021. Born in Pittsfield, MA on July 8, 1975, he was a graduate of Taconic High School. Justin moved to Aiken, SC with this 9-year old son in 2010. There, he continued his career as a CNC Machinist at B & S Machine Tool, Inc., where he had many friends and was proud of his work.


Five years ago, Justin met Cynthia Gissendanner, the woman who would become the love of his life. They were married on September 4, 2021. Justin and Cynthia had recently relocated to her family home in West Columbia, SC following their honeymoon in the Smoky Mountains.


Those who knew Justin were amazed by his special way with all animals. From cuddling a wild baby deer, to petting frogs he had called to from ashore, and caring for birds, mice and other animals, Justin’s gentle touch with animals was a wonderful part of who he was.


Justin is survived by his wife, Cynthia DiCarlo; his son, Devon DiCarlo; his parents, John & Carolyn DiCarlo; his brother, John DiCarlo, Jr.; his brother-in-law, James Gissendanner; and three cats who adored him. Justin was predeceased by his mother, Wanda Connors.


At the family’s request, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hope for Cats, Inc.
