Jeremy England

Jeremy Daniel England went to be with our loving savior on Thursday, September 24th, 2009 at B.C. Children’s Hospital at the tender young age of 14 years.

Jeremy lived in Yarrow and was in grade nine at Vedder Middle School in Chilliwack. He was a very athletic individual who excelled at basketball, cross-country, track & field, soccer, floor hockey, and volleyball. He had many other interests such as playing the clarinet and he was very creative in his art work, drawings, writing and inventions. He was very curious about the world around him and all of God’s creations. He had an amazing sense of humor and knew how to make people laugh and a deep faith that could never be altered. Jeremy adored his family, friends and teachers. He was beyond his years in so many ways and shared how he believed how everyone should value life and was a role model to all.

Lovingly remembered by his parents Mike and Glenda; his older brother Nathan and younger sister Michaela; Great Grandmother Oevering in the Netherlands with many other relatives; his Grandparents, John & Tina Dejong and many Uncles, Aunts, Cousins and friends.

Our heart felt thanks to all the medical staff at the B.C. Children’s Hospital, the Abbotsford Police and Fire Departments, B.C. Ambulance Service including support of the Med- Evac services and Abbotsford Search & Rescue. A special thanks to Const. Jeff Stewart of the Abbotsford Police for his escort to the B.C. Children’s Hospital. Great appreciation to all of you that are in our lives for all of your overwhelming support at this very difficult time and also to Bill Beaton and Dianne Garner for the sacrifices’ that they have given. Jeremy is sadly predeceased by Uncle Gary, Aunty Cheryl and Paternal Grandparents
