Jeremy David Williams, age 35, passed away in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 15, 2019 in Denver, Colorado. He spent the last moments of his life surrounded by family, who together met this transition with love. Jeremy was born January 12, 1984 in Vernal, Utah to Wayne Grant and Bonnie Jean Williams. He grew up in Vernal, Utah and Parker, Colorado. He played soccer in high school and maintained his athletic ability throughout his whole life.
Jeremy had this special artistic talent about him. He enjoyed drawing and exploring his amazing imagination. His creativity can be seen in his love for wood carving and the many unique creations he developed into reality. Jeremy had a way with animals and a gentle touch towards all living creatures. His unique sense of humor was saturated with perfect wit and timing. He was always up for fun, even up to the very end. Jeremy was always continuing to educate himself and referencing his vast knowledge of history. He had an amazing talent for repairing or rebuilding old worn out items and bringing them back to life. Jeremy could literally do anything. His presence and love will be missed by his family and friends for the rest of their lives. The world will now seem a little less bright without his sense of humor and random interjections for sarcasm. His family will always observe his empty chair and will remain forever thankful for the short amount of time they’ve all had with Jeremy. He will be forever and deeply missed.
He is preceded by his maternal grandparents Weldon and Melba Bastain; and paternal grandparents Ralph and Olive Alexander and Jack G. Williams
