He married Sara Lyn Richardson in the Mesa Arizona Temple on September 12, 1997 and is the father of four children: Melodee (10), Cameron (6), Brandon (6) and McKenzee (3). Jeremy was known for his love of life and family, often laughing with others to the point of breathlessness.

Funeral services will be 1:00 PM, Friday, November 7, 2008 at the same location with a visitation 1 hour prior to the services. Owens Livingston Mortuary of Snowflake handled the arrangements.
We never called them Hospitals we called them Jeremy's Hotels!
