Jeremy Steven Hetrick born February 22, 1986, a loving son, brother, cousin, uncle, father, and friend passed away unexpectedly on September 17, 2021. Jeremy was a man who loved fiercely, played to win, and was very loyal to friends and family. His sole purpose was inclusion – he wanted everyone together enjoying BBQ’s, boardgames, family nights and invited everyone to everything – he just wanted everyone there. He was loving, caring, and showed up for those in need despite facing many personal battles over the years. His inclusive and out-going nature was palpable and something to see and admire. He was a fierce boardgame player, most of which he won. He loved being silly, joking, and being together. One of Jeremy’s toughest battles was one of addiction which he fought for many years. His death is especially painful as he had overcome active addiction and had been clean for the last 18 months of his life. During this time, he was focused on becoming happy, healthy, and whole, repairing relationships, and finding forgiveness both within himself and with others. More importantly, finding love with his girlfriend Angela and being a father to his son Kane. He wanted nothing more than to be a husband and father and had just rebuilt himself and was on the way. With Angela there was love, happiness, and hope. Unfortunately, co-parenting Kane was not made easy, and the many roadblocks made it very difficult to have the relationship he wanted. Still, he loved Kane fiercely and his priority for him was to grow up safe and happy, and he knew when Kane was old enough to choose on his own, he would be waiting to make up for all the time that they both lost together. Jeremy was enormously intelligent, athletic, and mastered almost everything he tried (except dancing). He enjoyed cooking and gardening, camping, hiking, slacklining, canyoneering, all sports, laughing, and helping others. He was competitive, funny, and never gave up becoming the man he wanted to be. He worked every day in the last two years to become a better version of himself and was making incredible progress. Jeremy leaves behind his son Kane, his mother Molly (Toby) Taylor, sisters Carrie (Gordon) Brown and Lisa Kemp, and a brother Todd (Kendra) Anderson, his nieces Cailey, Amanda, Haylea, Janna, and Jaime, and nephews Aaron and Zac, his girlfriend Angela and her family, and so many others who loved him. He is preceded in death by his father John T. Hetrick and grandparents, maternal and paternal.
