Obituaries for July 22, 2010

Jeremy B. Garland, 29, Boise

   Jeremy Bret Garland, Boise, oldest son of Bret and Susan Garland, was born Monday, March 30, 1981, in Vallejo, CA. He died Saturday, July 3, 2010, while trying to swim across the Salmon River in Riggins. He was 29.

   While growing up, Jeremy, being the oldest of six kids, was always relied upon to help with his siblings, but never seemed to mind and loved them all. When visiting his parents as an adult, he just seemed to enjoy “hanging out” and “grazing” on homemade food, watching TV with dad or giving advice and help on building projects. He once spent two days running a backhoe, then said “Happy Mother's and Father's Day.”

   Jeremy attended elementary school in Twin Falls, Buhl and Boise; middle school at Lake Hazel in Boise; Meridian High School during his freshman year; and Kuna High School, where he graduated in 1999. During high school, he worked for the Plush Pippin and Panda restaurants.

   After high school, he did framing and finish work and made beautiful banisters and tile floors. The last few years, he built pools and the decks, even right into the pool. He was very talented and enjoyed his work.

   One of his proudest accomplishments was going to helicopter school, where he earned his private license and was working on his commercial license. He was almost finished when the school went bankrupt. He dreamed of being a search and rescue pilot.

   He loved snowboarding, floating on the Boise River and Indian Creek, going to movies and concerts with friends, and watching and learning mixed martial arts.

   He loved his pet goats, Maynard and Adolph, as evidenced by their bellies.

   He was preceded in death by his sister, Karina; his great-grandparents, Leona and Harry Dobson, and his great-grandma, Edith Virginia Holder.

   He is survived by his parents, Bret and Susan Garland of Orofino; brothers Kenny and Sean, both of Boise, Casey, working in Buttonwillow, CA., and Wayde and sister-in-law Jessica of Orofino; grandparents Lillian Shotwell of Prescott Valley, AZ., and Dee and Jack Garland of Oregon House, CA; aunts and uncles, Cheryl and Ken of Vancouver, WA., and Deena and Vince Camponelli of South Jordan, UT; and cousins Timothy, Rachel, A.J., Brittany, Kendra, Vincent, Jennifer and Rebecca.

   Jeremy will be missed by all who loved and knew him.

   We wish to thank the Idaho County Sheriff's Office, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, Clearwater County Search and Rescue, Riggins dive team and the search-and-rescue dogs and their owners who worked to find Jeremy and give us all closure. Their caring efforts are greatly appreciated. Thank you to all our family and friends for their love and support during this difficult time.

   Funeral services were held July 17 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Boise. Burial followed at the Kuna Cemetery.
