In his spare time, if he wasn’t seeing the newest Marvel or Star Wars movie, he was reading a favorite western or sci-fi fantasy novel. He was a “gentle giant” with an introspective spirit and a subtle sense of humor and a smirk to match. He was the best kind of friend, always quietly standing by and willing to help. He doted on his nieces and nephews, and they loved their “teddy bear” of an uncle. Jeremy was proud to be a Texan.
