T.J attended Chief Joseph and River Valley Elementary Schools where he was named student of the year two years in a row. He went to middle school at Lewis and Clark. For 3 years he attended Mt. View High School and was ready to graduate from Homedale High on may 23rd. His adulthood was soon to begin, turning 18 on may 14th.
T.J. Is survived by his father Kenneth Acree (Lori), mother LuAnn Zahm (Tye), his big brother Trent, stepbrothers, Kris Zahm, Jay and Kenny Mossi. He leaves behind his grandparents Betty and John Harris and grandma Louise Acree. Also included are uncles Gary Acree, Tim Darland (Bonnie), Jeff Darland (Suzanne), aunts Jenni Farrar (Jay), Cindi Morrison (Jim), plus the extended family of Wade and Jenni Esplin. He will be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and tons of friends.
T.J. Was a great kid with bright blue eyes and an irresistible smile. He lit up the room when he smiled. You knew you were special when he smiled at you. As a young lad T.J. and Trent went mutton busting in the local rodeos. He had a funny "cowgirl wave." He and Trent discovered BMX bike racing at an early age. They both brought home many trophies together. They soon found Optimist Football both playing on the same flag team their first year. Soon came tackle football.
T.J.'s years in middle school were great. He was involved in football, basketball, track and wrestling. During his last years of middle school and first of high school he was lucky enough to be a "ball boy" for BSU football, on the side lines of every home game.
In high school he played one year of football but then found soccer. His very first teams name was "Kicks and Giggles" and boy was that true. He went on to play J.V. Soccer with all of his good friends at Mt. View High School. He played one more season of indoor soccer with "Kicks and Giggles."
T.J. Loved camping, fishing, especially hunting with his dad (his first elk), soccer and BSU football. His favorite player was of course big T.J. Acree #89 on BSU. (He was little T.J.) T.J. was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew him. May you now rest in peace my son. Gone but never forgotten.
Our thanks go out to the many teachers, friends and family all who knew and loved our T.J.
