Mr. William Calvin “Red” Justice, age 87, peacefully went home to be with the Lord on Monday, January 24, 2022 at his residence after several months of failing health.
Red was born in Stokes County on June 27, 1934 to the late Robert Lee Justice, Sr. and the late Virginia Moss Justice. He was the owner and operator of Red’s Towing and attended Shallow Ford Christian Church. Red was a local racing legend and never met a stranger. He was always there to lend a helping hand or to give someone racing advice. He raced for 55 years and won 1,104 races at several tracks that included, Rainbow Speedway, Occoneechee Speedway, 311 Speedway and his beloved race track, Ace Speedway. You could always find him somewhere around the track weather it be racing, driving the pace car or the tow truck or in the stands watching the race with his brothers. He also was an avid billiards player and an exceptional mechanic. Red was a force to be reckoned with and will be greatly missed.
Red is survived by his four children, Sandi Justice Pitts, Robin Denise Justice, Billy (Paula) Justice and Vickie Justice (Rick) Paschal; two step sons, Thomas and Wayne Lineberry; fifteen grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; six siblings, R.L (Libby) Justice, Shot (Cathy) Justice, Duke (Sharon) Justice, Jessie (Linda) Justice, Bobby Justice and Diane (Oddie) Watkins. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Moyer Justice and Coy Lee Justice, Sr.
The funeral service will be 11:00 AM Saturday, January 29, 2022 at Lowe Funeral Home Chapel by Rev. Bill Easter. Interment will follow at Shallow Ford Christian Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 8:00 PM Friday evening at the funeral home and other time at his daughter, Sandi’s residence, 2878 US Hwy 158 W., Yanceyville.
