Jeremy Deem

Nov 1st, 1976 - Apr 13th, 2024

Celebration of life gathering:  5 until 7 p.m. Friday, April 19, 2024, at Frank & Bright Funeral Home



     Jeremy Joe Deem, age 47, of Rinard, Illinois, passed away Saturday, April 13, 2024.

      He was born November 1, 1976, in Terre Haute, Indiana, the son of Drue Allison Deem and Kathy Lee (Phillips).

      Jeremy dedicated over 27 years of his life to working in the oil fields, most recently with Pioneer Oil Company in Vincennes.  He had a natural talent for fixing things, especially anything mechanical, like cars, motorcycles, and small engines.  Jeremy loved spending time outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing, or just enjoying nature.  But above all, he cherished his family deeply with all of his heart.

      Jeremy is survived by 2 sons, Trevor Deem of Maricopa, Arizona, and Isaiah Deem of Flora; his mother and father, Kathy and Gary Eskew of Flora; a sister, Rachel (Jason) Salemme of Flora; a brother, Jason Eskew (Holly Johnson); several aunts, uncles, and cousins; and friend, Krystal Deem.

      He was preceded in passing by his father, Drue Deem; his wife, Carey Deem; and his son, Cory Deem.

      A celebration of life gathering for family and friends will be from 5 until 7 p.m. Friday, April 19, 2024, at Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora.  In lieu of flowers or gifts, memorial donations are suggested to assist the family with expenses, and these will be accepted by the funeral home.  To share a condolence or memory, visit:
