Jeremy Chris Elmont, our husband, father, son, brother, and friend, passed away on March 14, 2011 in Hawaii, surrounded by many loved ones.
Jeremy was born in Gunnison, Utah to Earl and Claire Elmont. Jeremy graduated from Gunnison Valley High School in 1988. He then enlisted in the US Army, proudly serving his country for over twenty-three years, including a tour of duty in Germany and service in Operation Desert Storm. At the time of his death, he was stationed at Schofield Barracks, on Oahu, and was working as the Supply Sergeant for Alpha Company 249th Engineer Battalion (Prime Power).
Upon learning of Jeremy's death, his battalion commander observed: "Sergeant Elmont was a leader and expert in the logistics field who was admired and respected by his fellow Soldiers. His performance of duty during his military career represents tremendous dedication, selfless service, and outstanding accomplishments that reflect great credit on himself and his unit.
In all his actions, he was the consummate professional Soldier." Jeremy had a special gift for being a friend to everyone. His keen sense of humor and contagious laugh will be sorely missed. He was loyal, honest, and dependable. Very few men had such an impact on so many people. His reputation as a constant giver will continue through the donation of his organs.
Jeremy is survived by his wife, Brandi; a son, Justin; and daughters Danielle, Shayne, and Makenzi. He is also survived by his parents and eight siblings: Brett (Ninel), Mark (Jennifer), Steven (Jill), David (Stacey), Julie Barr, Suzanne (Todd) Davis, Marilee (Tysson) Davis, Brandon, and by a large extended family.
