Jed Allen Strickland

April 21, 1961 - September 13, 2015

Jed Allen Strickland worked as an Insurance Adjuster for 20 years, before that he did auto body work.
He was the youngest of three. He has a brother named Jeff, and a sister named Janice. Both his parents passed. His mothers name is Jenny, and fathers name is Jean. His family was very supportive throughout all of his life. Jed had a lot of health problems, such as diabetes, and heart problems in which he was hospitalized a few times, but he kept a positive outlook even when he didn't feel well. Jed loved animals, and the great outdoors. He was liked by all who knew him, and loved very much by his girlfriend Barbara who he was with for 18 years. He is forever in our hearts, and is greatly missed. He is now up in heaven with his mom and dad and grandma and grandpa. R.I.P Jed until it's our time and we see you again.


Quotes and Sayings

When tomorrow starts without me, and I am not here to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me. I know how much you loved me as much as I loved you, and each time you think of me I know you'll miss me too. But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand, that Jesus came and called my name and took me by the hand. He said that my place is ready in heaven far above, and that I have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away a tear fell from my eye, for all my life I'd always thought it wasn't my time to die. I had so much to live for, and so much yet to do, it seems almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had. If I could of stayed for just awhile, I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realize that this could never be, for emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things that I would miss tomorrow, I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven's gate and felt so much at home, as God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throne. He said "This is eternity, and all I've promised you, today your life on earth is past, but here it starts a new". "I promise no tomorrow but today will always last, and since each day's the same here there's no longing for the past". So when tomorrow starts without me don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart. My mom and dad are with me now, whom I so truly missed, and as we look upon you all, we are throwing you a great big kiss.

Jed Strickland was my lover and friend for 20 years. He was a very caring and wonderful person. He loved to fish and loved the great outdoors, and was kind to everyone he met. Jed's life was taken to soon due to health problems in which he had no control over. He had a brother and sister who were always there for him in sickness and health. He will be greatly missed, by all. I will love him forever, but I know he will always be with me in spirit.
