Yes, that would be personification exactly. It starts as soon as Justice has the gardener refer to death as "he," and says that he "stood there." Any time a writer gives an inanimate object (or, in this case, abstract idea) human identity, that's personification.

Since Death is capitalized, there is personification being used...
