OWENSVILLE — Jeremy Owen, 35, of Owensville, was taken from us too soon.
He passed away Oct. 12, 2019, as result of being a passenger in a motor vehicle accident. Jeremy always said, "There are good guys and bad guys" and he left this world as a good guy.
He was born Nov. 18, 1983, in Evansville, to Robert Owen and Marilyn Benson.
Jeremy worked as a contractor, doing mostly roofing work. He did not have a home church but was very proud of the fact he was baptized. Jeremy loved to go fishing, rock/arrowhead hunting, and spending time with his nephews. Gabe and Ty, his nephews, were a special part of Jeremy's life. He absolutely adored them. Jeremy had the best sense of humor and would go out of his way to make you laugh. He enjoyed being the daredevil in the room, and he would be the guy to be on the receiving end of "I bet you can't do that" statements. Jeremy will be remembered as having a heart of gold. He has made mistakes, but he was loyal and a good guy. Jeremy would do anything for anyone and would give the shirt off his back for you.
Jeremy is survived by his father Bob (Debbie) Owen; stepfather Tim Benson; sister Amber (Jason) Smith; stepsister Jamie Benson; nephews Gabe Gaines and Ty Smith; and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his mother Marilyn Benson.
Holders Funeral Home is honored and privileged to be entrusted with the care of Mr. Owen. The family will be hosting a celebration of life at the REH Center on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019, from 1 to 3 p.m.
