Jeremy J. VanDyne (1992 - 2017)

As most of you who know us, are already aware our youngest son Jeremy died tragically this past Sunday at the young age of 25.

He had no life insurance of any kind and very few possessions. The cost of his Wake and Funeral Services is estimated to total approximately $8,000.00

The purpose of this account is not to raise funds. It is being created for the sole purpose of providing individuals and/or groups with a secure format (or repository) for monetary giving towards the cost of Jeremy’s Wake and Funeral Services in lieu of flowers and other gifts. Any funds collected over and above the costs for his Wake and Funeral Services will be donated to Teen Challenge Men’s Ministry in Brockton, Massachusetts.

Participation is strictly voluntary and solely for the stated purposes.

We have included a copy of what we posted to Facebook earlier this week concerning his sudden death.

Grief Unmeasurable, Love Unstoppable! It is with great sadness and unmeasurable grief in that we tell our dear friends and family that our youngest son, Jeremy, age 25 died this past Sunday in the early morning hours of an apparent suicide. Our hearts are bursting with the love we have for him, even in his physical absence and are full of thankfulness for the special gift he was from God. Although the road was often not a smooth one, Jeremy was passionate, creative and smart as a whip. He had a knack for getting under your skin when he wanted to and had a sense of humor that sometimes only he understood.

We miss him immensely already and know we will every day for rest of our lives until we see him again. Our hope in this dark hour rests alone in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and in the knowledge that at a young age Jeremy had accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior too.

It is our hope that in his death, someone, somewhere will be touched by his story as it is repeated over and over and will be saved from a similar fate. That one other family will avoid that path we must now walk. That one life would be saved, for his sake.

Join us in celebrating our precious son’s life in the coming days and weeks ahead. Although this “Prodigal” did not come home to us, as we prayed, we rejoice that he is now home with our Lord. No longer in pain, where there are no tears. We love you Jeremy more than you will ever know.

“For everyone that calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13) NIV
