Jeremy J. Smith, former Alto resident, passed away in his sleep Sept. 15 2021 in Mt. Pleasant, PA where he resided with his partner Miranda Wood and his cat Mama Patches.
Jeremy was born on June 4 1979 and graduated from Lowell High school. Among his jobs after graduation was working with his brother Kirby at Little Caesar’s Pizza in Lowell, a West Michigan food processing plant, and General Mills in Ohio. He also worked in Grand Rapids for a while with his Toys R Us family.
Jeremy is preceded in death by his cousin James Flynn. He is survived by his parents, Annie and Ed Smith, his brothers Eric and Kirby and their families. Eric resides in Rockford with his wife LeAnna and their sons Parker and Pierce; brother Kirby and his wife Diana and nieces Maycee & Emmy who reside in Alto; best friends Paul and Christina Walters of Kentucky, and ex-wife and friend Lissette Reynoso who resides in South America.
He leaves behind his beloved extended family including Aunt Sally Stuck, cousins Laurie, Janet, Robert, Richard, and Linda of Muskegon; Aunt Jane and Uncle Tim, cousins Molly and Jesse Heaven-Hoyle; Aunt Merry Heaven and Uncle David Holcomb; Uncle Jack and Margaret Heaven, cousins Aaron, Jason, and Melissa all from Clarksville, MI. Other cousins include Larry Smith and family; Kim Smith – Doyle and family.
We are planning to remember Jeremy on October 2 2021 at 2 PM at our family lake located at 10502 Bell Rd in Clarksville Michigan. However if the weather does not permit we will be moving the celebration to the Clarksville Village Hall at 162 S Main St, Clarksville, MI 48815.
He loved his dog Lumpy, his motorcycle, and his little black Fiat his Mom called the “clown car.” Jeremy had a love for cooking and sharing his food with others. For those who knew him this isn’t goodbye. So “Jeremy, we will see you later.”
