Jeremy Charles Linton, age 33, returned to his Heavenly Father on February 11, 2008 at the West Jordan Care Center in West Jordan, Utah.
Born March 9, 1974 in Salt Lake City, Utah to David Charles and Bonnie Jensen Linton. He was a member of the LDS Church. He lived a selfless, humble life for those who knew and loved him. Although Jeremy never walked or talked, and his life was often full of pain, his love was unwavering. Jeremy chose to sacrifice his life for others. He taught us more than we could ever teach him. His special spirit has forever shaped the lives of his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, as well as his mother and father. Jeremy has also touched the lives of countless others who had the opportunity to know him. Jeremy will be missed dearly, but his spirit lives on in all he touched. Jeremy, we know you have been reunited with your sister, Natalie, and your brother, Jacob. The thought of you and Natalie walking and talking brings us great joy. We look forward to the time we will all be together again. Thank you, we are truly blessed and are better people because of you. We love you for your sacrifice.
