Justin Ray Loran

(Sept. 21, 1972 - Sept. 6, 2021)


Justin Ray Loran, 48, of Cody, passed away from complications of COVID-19 in Billings, Montana, on Sept. 6, 2021.

Justin was a few weeks shy of his 49th birthday. He was born on Sept. 21, 1972, in Cody, to Nick Loran and Exa Elizabeth (“Beth”) Nolan. Justin attended Cody High School and was active in football, boxing and FFA. He received an Associates of Applied Science in Drafting at Northwest College.

Justin worked many years in sheet metal. With his children, he loved camping, hunting, fishing and kayaking. One of many fond memories of his children was his love of fishing bobbers. He enjoyed collecting and scavenging for them. He loved watching his kids play sports and enjoyed supporting Cody High School football and wrestling. 

Justin was preceded in passing by his sister Kelli Donahoo. He is survived by his children: Randy, Alisha, Hunter, Lexi, Lucas and Trent; grandson Mickael; his mother Beth Nolan; as well as his brothers Stoney Loran and Casey Nolan.

In lieu of flowers or cards, the family asks that memorial monument donations be made so we all have a place to come and visit him and see his huge smile.

Memorial services will be at Ballard Funeral Home on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021, at 1 p.m. Following funeral services, there will be an outdoor celebration of Justin’s life for his family and friends at the Lions Club Pavilion at Beck Lake Park. All are welcome to attend.
