Former Bibb County Commission Chairman Larry Justice was remembered Saturday as a talented man with a passion for public service, yet who still made time for his family and faith.
More than 200 people attended the funeral services held at Mikado Baptist Church in south Bibb County, where Justice was a member for many years.
Not only was he my friend, but he was my brother in Christ, said longtime friend Bill Barnett. There are many accolades that fit Larry, but he was a voice of love.
Justice, who held office for 28 years, died Tuesday of cancer. He was 74.
He became the full-time commission chairman in 1990 and retired in 2000.
He was credited with many accomplishments in his political career, but speakers at his funeral talked most about his personality and character.
