Jeremy C. Clark, 23, of Gloucester, went home to be with his Heavenly Father Dec. 4, 2012, peacefully at home with his family by his side.
He was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, Robert and Doris Clark, and great-grandmother, Mary Plessinger.
He attended Gloucester High School and was previously employed with Branscome, Inc.
Jeremy, known as “JuJu” to his family and friends, was a native and lifelong resident of Gloucester. He was a kind and compassionate young man with a magnetic personality, amazing smile, and beautiful green eyes that could warm the heart. His loyalty to others, sense of humor, and generosity were just a few of his greatest qualities. Always there for his family and friends, Jeremy would often be found helping someone out when they needed it.
He enjoyed the outdoors immensely. His favorite activities were boating, fishing, hunting and a challenging game of corn hole with the guys. But most of all, Jeremy loved spending quality time with his family, fiancée and friends. He enjoyed making those around him laugh and loved with all of his heart. His love for life, charismatic ways and courage will never be forgotten.
