Jeremy Mike Simmons, 40, of Cody, left this world to be with our Lord on Jan. 14, 2019, in Denver, Colorado.
He fought courageously to stay with us, but his path has taken him to a better place. He amazed everyone with his strength and will. Jeremy could learn to do anything he put his mind to, inspiring awe with all he did. He was never alone.
Jeremy was born on Dec. 30, 1978, to loving parents Mike and Dona Simmons in Humboldt, Tennessee. He leaves behind devoted wife and soulmate Sheila; beautiful children: Brianna (18), Sierra (15), Michael (14), and Ella (12); parents Mike and Dona; siblings: Anita, John, and beloved twins Christy and Emily; Grandmother Wilton; darling niece Abigail; aunts: Linda Whitwell, Beth Thomaston, Caroline Williams, Denise Casey, Rhonda Jarnigan, and Tina Frazier; uncles: Larry Ray and Jeff Casey; and in-laws who loved Jeremy dearly: Skip Richardson, Linda Rednour, Travis Rednour and sweet family: Robert Rednour, Chris Clymore, and Henry Jones; fur baby Soldier Girl; along with so many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews, all in which Jeremy loved and prayed for.
Jeremy was preceded in death by adored grandfather J.C. Simmons (who lovingly nicknamed Jeremy “Bubba”); grandparents Carmon and Joyce Casey; in-laws Mark Rednour (father) and Robert “Bob” Richardson (grandfather) — who all loved and accepted Jeremy fully into their family.
Jeremy will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He is like no other and is cherished by his family and friends. He loved life and God to the fullest.
