Jeremy Cole Van Sickle
BUHL - Jeremy Cole Van Sickle, 23, died May 29, 2007, due to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.
Jeremy was born on May 25, 1984, in Twin Falls, Idaho, to Rocky and Julie Van Sickle. He lived in Buhl, Idaho, where he attended Buhl schools. After high school, he was employed by several companies and farms in the Magic Valley. He was presently employed by Layne Christiansen Mining Exploration Division, where he was a core driller in Nevada and Arizona. He returned to Buhl every few weeks for his days off. He was highly respected in the upper ranks of the company as one of their youngest and most skilled drillers.
Jeremy was energetic; he was honorably hard working, and he was a thrill-seeker. After skydiving a month ago, he said, "What's the big deal? I'd rather ride my motorcycle." From the time he was able to hold things, he began taking them apart and putting them back together. He had an amazingly mechanical mind and was constantly deliberating and inventing, which meant he always had a project under way, either in his mind or working toward completion. He was in the process of restoring and refurbishing several vehicles at the time of his death.
Jeremy sensed the importance of lending a hand and was willing to help in any way he was needed, whether is was cutting and stacking wood, building fences or completing someone else's project, even when that meant sacrificing the completion of his own. Jeremy had taught Primary and developed a special bond with the children in his class, and he loved to help out in the nursery at church by holding crying toddlers and making them laugh. Jeremy had a select few close friends to whom he was very devoted, not the least of which were his siblings and cousins. Jeremy's sense of humor made him delightful to be around, and we will sorely miss the peels of laughter he generated in our home. Though we are comforted in the faith that we will be together forever in the eternities, we'll miss his mischievous grin and the twinkle in his eye while we wait for that reunion.
Jeremy is survived by his parents, Rocky and Julie (Munk) Van Sickle; and his siblings, Jeffrey, Kaitlin, Kevin and Brendan Van Sickle; his sister-in-law, Sandra; nephew, Ethan; grandparents, Albert Juan and Juanita Munk and Edith Van Sickle; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Jack Van Sickle; and uncle, Danny Burnett, both of whom he missed and appreciated deeply.
The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at the LDS Church building on Fair Avenue in Buhl, followed by the grave dedication and burial at the West End Cemetery. A public viewing will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 1, at the Farmer Funeral Chapel, and from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday before the funeral at the church.
