Jeremy L. Henrey aka Bucky, 39 of Roscoe passed away unexpectedly on October 1, 2021 in Sharon, Wi. Jeremy died doing something he loved, riding his Harley Davidson.

Jeremy was born on April 2, 1982, at Rockford Memorial Hospital, Rockford, IL to Beverly and Jerry Henrey. Jeremy graduated from Harlem High School in 2000 and attended some college classes at Kaplan University. He married his high school sweetheart Ashley Turnure on August 25, 2007 in Machesney Park Il. He was a sales manager for a local janitorial company.

Jeremy was a devoted father, husband, son, and brother. He was also a good friend to all who knew him. Jeremy was everyone’s computer tech and tax accountant. He followed in his dads’ footsteps of becoming a firefighter and motorcyclist. Though his firefighting was short lived due to back injury he was always proud he was able to take part in continuing his dad’s passion. Jeremy and Ashley took motorcycle trips whenever possible; it was how they enjoyed their time together. Ashley was Jeremy’s one true love; he couldn’t have imagined his life without her. Jeremy was actively involved with his children and his nephews. He made them all feel loved and cherished. Kayla was the apple of his eye and Jerry was the son he always dreamed of having. It meant the world to Jeremy to be able to have a son and carry on his father’s name. The two of them made him a proud father. Jeremy lost his dad when he was only 19 years old, he was very close to his mother through the years and was always there for her. Jeremy was the best little brother a sister could ask for and everyone’s protector. Jeremy loved traveling and driving to see new places. His favorite spot was the Ocean. Jeremy was also a foody of a sort, he traveled thousands of miles across the United States during his family vacations to try well known food items and restaurants. Many will be lost in the days and weeks to come as we learn to navigate this world without him. He was the life of the party, an adventurer, and his loved one’s biggest cheerleader, how he will be missed.

Jeremy is survived by his mother, Beverly(Andy)Newhausen, his wife, Ashley Henrey, his children, Kayla and Jerry Henrey, his sister, Tracy(Jon) Fraser , his stepsister, Breanna(Michael) Bird, his grandfather, Orville Henrey, Sisters in Law, Lucky Turnure(boyfriend Jared) and Brenda (Thomas) Hopper, Brothers in Law Thomas(Amanda) Turnure and Brandon Turnure.

Jeremy was predeceased by his father, Jerry Henrey, his paternal grandmother, Dorothy Henrey, his maternal grandmother, Geneva Rogers, and his maternal grandfather, Miles Floyd, and his two favorite dogs Maximus and Lucius.

When I was a little girl I was so fascinated by Bucky being a firefighter I would tell all my classmates. So one day on show and tell he brought his equipment to North Love school and was my show and tell😇
I felt like the most popular kid in school.
Bucky always made sure that I felt as if I belonged!
I had a bumpy time growing up and he always did his best to smooth it out when my other brother's weren't around..
Love you Bucky

Jeremy was my Rock, he held our family together. We went on many great adventures because he always loved having fun and driving. We had plans to travel everywhere and to retire and have a house in the mountains and near the ocean. We never could decide. He loved the ocean but I love the mountains. He did everything for everyone else and everytime I told him to do something for himself he said " I'm having fun watching you guys have fun".
My world changed in a blink of an eye. So many what ifs. I always dreamed of growing old with him and having grandkids. I will never be the same or love anyone like him. Ride in Heaven my Love. Come get me soon. I miss you so much!!!

We went to the French Quarters in Louisiana while visiting Charlie Beach on vacation. After a busy day of shopping and Austin Lindquist, Charlie and Buckie and I eating at an all you can eat Shrimp shop, we headed back to the van. It was getting dark, this man came up and started shining Jeremy's tennis shoes. Jeremy said what are you doing the man just continued, then stood up and said that will be $20. Jeremy said "I don't have any money". the man responded "I will piss on your shoes" Jeremy looked at me like help mom. I had spent my daily amount that I brought. So I bartered gave the man our peanuts, and pretzels and everything else we bought to snack on. But boy Jeremy's face........shear fear and shock but he walked away dry lol
