Jeremy Paul Beckstead

December 17, 1973March 10, 2020

With a heavy heart, Jeremy Paul Beckstead (46) of Traverse City passed away at Munson Medical Center on March 10, 2020 surrounded by family. Jeremy was born December 17, 1973 in Alma, MI to Stanley and Rhonda (Peak) Beckstead. His father Stanley was deployed in the Navy, leaving Jeremy, his brother Scott, and their mother Rhonda to call a few other places home until Stanley finished his enlistment. Eventually the family returned to Alma, MI to be closer to family and establish their roots. Jeremy graduated from Alma high school in 1991 and went on to earn an associate degree in architectural drafting from Ferris State University. Jeremy later went on to create his own business, Beckstead Drafting Co. in 2000 until 2016 before he began working for Hardline Corporation. Jeremy loved the outdoors. He was never one to turn down a fishing trip, and never missed an opening day of deer hunting season. He was always there for you to lean on and was loved by so many. Jeremy was one in a million. The light that he radiated will forever live on in the hearts of all that knew him. Jeremy is survived by his two daughters; Alexandra and Izabel, his brother Scott, his sister-in-law Stephanie, his nephew Wyatt, his parents Stanley and Rhonda, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

I haven’t seen Jeremy since he was a baby/toddler. But I would recognize that beautiful smile I see in his picture. I had the pleasure of babysitting for Jeremy while his mom worked and his dad was in the service.
He was always happy and content.
My deepest sympathy is with all those who were a part of his life and are wondering how life can possibly go on without Jeremy. The hurt must be almost unbearable.
Rhonda and Stan family and friends we are so sorry for the loss of your son, brother, nephew, dad and friend.

Well Jeremy was our son in law for many years and remained very close to Him. We are at a loss of words to describe how wonderful he was and such a GREAT father to our grandkids. We will all miss him and like I say have no words to express the loss this is for everyone. God Bless you on your next journey as you raise towards the heavens. Goodbye my friend and make no mistake we will take good care of your children! They are both strong and will be fine that’s for sure. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

Dear Rhonda and family,
I cannot express enough emotion to address what you are experiencing right now but I do know the devastation it leaves in your heart. I lost my daughter 5 years ago and still I am affected deeply. Only God will lessen the deep pain.
Now excuse me while I go blow my nose and wipe my tears. Love you.
