Jeremy John Lillie

March 1, 1983March 29, 2021

Jeremy John Lillie was born 3/1/83 in Dallas, Texas and passed away in Carrollton, Texas on March 29, 2021. Jeremy is preceded in death by his grandparents, Jerry and Margie Kroeplin, John C. Tyler Sr., Ed and Margy Lillie. He is also preceded in death by his uncle John C. Tyler Jr. and aunt Tammie Jay Tyler. He is survived by his parents, Gordon and Tanya Lillie, brother Christopher Ray Lillie and wife Courtney Ray Lillie and his nephews, Caleb Ray and Carter Ray Lillie. He is also survived by his Uncle Jeffrey Warren Kroeplin and wife Betsy Kroeplin and their children Ashlynn Elizabeth and Brayden Warren. Any many more aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Jeremy loved his family more than anything the world could give him. He held each of us close to his heart and would lay his own life down for any of us. Jeremy had a heart of gold and would give you the last dollar he had even if he couldn’t buy food so that he could help you. Jeremy accepted everyone as they were; never judgmental of anyone.

Jeremy was a star as a baseball player when he was young. He pitched and played first base while his Daddy coached him. Jeremy was good at any sport he tried-basketball, track, football, and soccer. He loved playing street hockey with brother, Christopher. In Jeremy’s later years, he was in gym sales and management and was well recognized in the business.

Heaven gained a beautiful angel-our son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend.

I know we weren't around Jeremy as he was growing up, but my heart hurts for Tanya, Gordon, and their family. It is never easy giving up a child. Sending prayers to all of you for comfort and healing.

Love, Judy Lynne

We are blessed to have so many wonderful memories of Jeremy. One of my favorites were when he, Chris and my boys were young kids, playing together. There were lots of happy days filled with kids having fun. Jeremy was constantly on the move, usually running wherever he went. He loved to bike, skateboard and play any kind of sport they could come up with and was good at all of them. He was a natural athlete and such a competitor. From the time he has little, and throughout his life, Jeremy has held a very special place in our hearts. He was deeply loved by family and friends, and will be missed greatly missed. There is no doubt that Heaven has gained a cherished and precious soul.
