Jeremy Keith Brock passed away surrounded by his family and loved ones on Sunday, November 7, 2021. He was the son of Jerry Brock (Vickie) and Dina Shirey Darnell (Wyman). Jeremy is survived by his three children: daughters, Noelle (17) and Haiden (11); son, Tanner (7); siblings, Jonathan, Gabrielle, and Kale Brock; grandmother, Mearl Shirey; girlfriend and sweetheart, Kaitlyn Piorkowski. He was also the grandson of the late Jerry Shirey, Jasper “Jack” and Margie Huggins Brock.

Born on Christmas Eve in Columbia, SC, he graduated from Lexington High School and attended the University of South Carolina to study finance. After attending USC, Jeremy and his brother, Jonathan, built BB Auto Supply, LLC into a successful business. Jeremy had a passion for everything golf; from playing with his best golfing partner, Tanner, to watching Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson win green jackets.

When he wasn’t playing golf, Jeremy could be found most Wednesday nights playing pool with his team where he recently earned his “Rackless Patch”. Jeremy also loved to travel and two of his favorite vacation spots were the beach and Las Vegas. Of course, while there, he would find time to try out new golf courses. Jeremy loved family dinners, hanging out with his life-long friends, and being with his girlfriend Kait. His greatest joy in life was spending quality time with his three children and being their proud father.

His beloved Boykin Spaniel, Chocolate “Chip” Brock, will miss fun car rides and trips to the shop together. To the humans that knew and loved Jeremy, he will be most remembered for his jovial attitude, infectious laugh, and funny pranks. Jeremy was always the life of the party and treated everyone with kindness. He was known for his great sense of humor and his big smile that would light up any room.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 13, at 12:00 pm at Congaree Baptist Church, located at 101 Pine Ridge Drive, West Columbia, SC. A visitation will take place prior to the service between 11:00 am - 12:00 pm at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Youth On Course or the Tiger Woods Foundation to honor Jeremy’s memory. You can make donations by visiting youthoncourse.org or tigerwoodsfoundation.org.

To My Love, it’s taken my a while to get the words I wanted to say that I felt adequately put my feeling from a squiggle line to something somewhat straight and I still feel like this doesn’t do justice. You where the light of my life, the man of my dreams. Day in and day out you showed me an unconditional love I will never forget. You lifted me up when I was down and made me smile just walking in the room or with one remark or belting out a song completely wrong. You just always knew exactly what made my heart smile. You knew me. You were my safe space when I was scared and my protector, someone I leaned on when my knees were weak and held me up so strong and confidently. You put everyone first, because you loved seeing them smile and be happy. There was no stranger in your life. No lengths you wouldn’t go for me, your kids or anyone to ensure their happiness. An man with an open heart and open ear and we all know the most creative mind. So clever, full of wit, and of course my picture buddy. You are the most important part of me and I will love you like day one forever. I’ll make you proud and show you our love story was real, it was authentic and it was unexplainable. It was the best two years of my life. I love you, baby. I’ll see you at our favorite place someday, until then hit those birdies in the sky. I can’t wait to hear about it. Love, Hunny Kait.

The Larkins and The Cassadys send all their love and sympathy. We had boy children, and quite a few, until the grands. We know the love you carry for your sons. We are devastated for you and yours. We will donate to the golf fund. I remember Jeramy’s smile and enthusiasm as he returned from golfing. A big smile and you could feel his happiness. I felt the love he had for his mother , and as boys will be boys , his brother also. No words will change your loss, know that you were loved and are loved by us and many others. Kitty Larkin

Dina and Jonathan, I'm so very sorry for your loss and the pain I know you are going through. For his children that he loved so much and they loved him, I'm so sorry for your loss, it's not fair to lose your dad. I'm glad you all had so many wonderful, happy memories with him, those can never be taken away. I hope that love and those happy memories you will allow to bring you the comfort you will need.

Jeremy was such a wonderful blessing to all that were fortunate enough to know him. That smile and always breaking into a song, always such a delight to be around.

As you work and struggle to find a whole new normal, I pray God will give you the strength and direction you will need. His children will need you more than ever, you are their link to their dad and they are your link to him. I'm so heartbroken for you. Love and prayers to you.

Big brother, best friend, business partner, it was always you and I vs the world. Today I only have questions and an emptiness that will never be satisfied, but in time as the pain slowly transforms into something manageable, I will be forever grateful for spending more time with you than anyone could ever dream of. The funny thing about time though, no time will ever be enough and at the same time we always believe we have more.

I'm going to miss every single moment we shared; the trouble we caused together as kids, the good times with friends that somehow became our friends and not just yours or mine, the constant bragging about the kids, the excitement of growing our business together, watching you effortlessly navigate a golf course, and just your overall "why so serious?" approach to life. I'm even going to miss you annoying me every Monday with 8 straight hours of country music.

My focus from today until my last will be showing love, compassion, support, and guidance to Noelle, Haiden, and Tanner as we travel this now strange world together. I will try to live every day in a way that will make you proud, honor your memory, and bring some good to this world. If we meet again today, tomorrow, or yesterday, know that I will be standing with open arms for an embrace like you have never imagined. I know I didn't say it enough but I love you more than any words could ever suffice.

"Now he has left this strange world a little before me. This means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction made between past, present, and future is nothing more than a persistent, stubborn illusion." -Einstein

The thing I remember most about Jeremy was his ability to make all of us laugh. I could be in the worst mood and somehow he could still make me smile just sitting across the bar at the Rooster's Den being a goofball. We talked deeply about our lives throughout the years and kept in touch with each other. I care so much for his mother, Dina, and his brother, Jon. I can't begin to imagine how much this hurts for those closest to him. I love you all and I'll always keep his memory in my heart.

Jeremy, you will be dearly missed! All of the jokes, that million dollar smile, all the song lyrics... Thank you so much for giving me 2 beautiful babies to love and adore, Haiden a Daddy's girl she is and will forever be and then Tanner you will forever be his Hero. There was NEVER a dull moment with you, you always knew how to make an entrance into a room, (cutting flips coming through moms door to singing or cracking a joke). And everything was a chicken wang to you, you could lighten the mood in any room. Again thank you for the beautiful memories and for my niece and nephew.
