Jeremy Roy Eldredge
Jeremy was born to Kenny and Karie on Sept. 5, 1989, in Twin Falls, Idaho. Jeremy graduated from Lighthouse Christian School in 2008 and was an incredibly gifted athlete. Jeremy excelled in football, but his true passion was basketball. He was awarded All-Conference Player in both sports. Jeremy continued on with Lighthouse football as an assistant coach. One of his favorite pastimes was going to the gym or working out with dad at home. Jeremy loved spending time with his sister and brothers and their families; he adored all of his nieces and nephews. Jeeping with his family brought the biggest smile to Jer’s face and oh, what a smile he had.
Jeremy was in an automobile accident in May of 2009 that nearly took his life. He suffered a major brain trauma and should not have survived. That is where “Jeremy’s Journey” began. Many lives have been touched during his physical struggles during the last 3½ years. We as a family have been able to see through the lives of other people why Jeremy survived.
Jeremy is survived by his parents, Kenny and Karie; sister (and best friend) Lindsey (Chris) Collins; brothers, Justin (Heather) Eldredge and Brandon (Randi) Eldredge; grandmas, Barbara Kreft and Ann Eldredge; grandpa, Allen Eldredge; uncles, Kevin (Melodie) Kreft, Garren (Jeanne) Taylor and Jordan (Laverne) Eldredge; aunts, Jenny (John) Resch, Galene Taylor and Genell (Glenn) Mutter; nieces, Camille and Camber Collins; and nephews, Tristin, Tanner, Mayson, Brayden, Austyn and Carson; as well as many cousins and so many dear friends. Jeremy was greeted in heaven by his grandpa, Phil Kreft; grandma, Gisela Eldredge; nephew, Camden Collins; and niece, Maycee Eldredge.
We wish to give many thanks to Dr. Cole Johnson and caregivers at River Ridge Rehabilitation facility and a special thank you to Travis, Sophie and Rick from St. Luke’s Hospice.
For Jeremy’s family, the sun may never shine as bright nor the grass seem quite as green; our lives have been so much richer for Jeremy having been in it. “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13).
A celebration of Jeremy’s life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Twin Falls.
In lieu of flowers, it would bless our family for donations to be made to The Jeremy Eldredge Memorial Scholarship Fund at Jeremy’s alma mater, Lighthouse Christian School, 960 Eastland Drive, Twin Falls, ID 83301.
Those who wish may share memories and condolences on Jeremy’s memorial page at www.magicvalleyfuneralhome.com. Arrangements are under the direction of Parke’s Magic Valley Funeral Home of Twin Falls.
