Jeremy “JerBear” Williams, 43, of Scranton, died unexpectedly of a drug overdose Thursday May 18th after a long battle with addiction. Born in Scranton, son of Gary Williams and the late Deborah Williams, Jeremy was raised in various foster homes and group homes in the Scranton area. He also attended Scranton schools.
He enjoyed cooking, hunting, and fishing but his passion was helping others who were struggling with the disease of addiction. Jeremy was a beautiful person, inside and out. He was kind, loving, and shared God and his heart to all.
His daughter would like to thank the friends of Bill W. and Just Believe Recovery Center where Jeremy admitted himself for addiction treatment last month, for the last time.
Also surviving are a brother Michael Williams and his better half Tanya Gonzalez; His daughter Brooke Aaron and husband, Shawn; His son, Devin; His father Gary Williams and wife, Barbara; His grandchildren, Laythan and Ramelo; His cousins Gary, Jeff, Charlene, Sabrina, and Vincent; mother of his daughter, Angie; his life-long best friend, Chris; and his entire AA family.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 27th, at 11am at Nay Aug Park in Scranton. All family and friends are welcome.
If preferred, memorial contributions can be sent to his daughter, Brooke Aaron, c/o 99 Vago Rd., Tunkhannock, Pa., 18657.
Arrangements are under the care of the Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
