JEREMY JIM ARIONUS
November 7, 1977 ~ January 6, 2013
"He was a kind man, much loved, and will be greatly missed. Someone recently said Jeremy was the
type of man "who never met a stranger".
Jeremy Arionus of LaCenter, WA, passed away on Jan. 6, 2013. He lived his whole life in LaCenter and graduated from LaCenter High School.
He worked many years with his dad in the family's drywall company Orchards Wallboard and then later for other sheetrock companies, working as a taper.
Jeremy was an avid outdoorsman and loved to go boating, fishing, hunting and camping. He especially loved to go hunting with his dad. Some of his favorite hobbies were gold panning, mushroom hunting and hiking. He enjoyed gardening and raising chickens. Jeremy was also a cowboy and spent many hours on the back of his horse "Mac." He volunteered as a fence rider at the Clark County Fair and for Search & Rescue. He loved attending the Pendleton Roundup. Some of his great life adventures included fishing in Alaska, trips to Mexico, Costa Rica, Aruba and Australia's Great Barrier Reef, to his ultimate adventure, having his daughter Danika.
Jeremy is survived by his beloved daughter, Danika Brissler Arionus; his parents, Jim and Barbra Arionus; grandmothers, June Arionus and Opal Rhodehouse Collins; his sisters and brothers: Denise (Tom) Coonrod McDonald, Luann (Richie) Arionus Fivecoats, Terry Coonrod Wieber, Craig Coonrod, Rhonda (Russell) Arionus Polland, Brian (Michelle) Coonrod and Jamie (Rick) Arionus Speck; also his special friend, Tami Brissler; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, William Arionus and Caleb Rhodehouse; and brothers, James Jr. and Daniel Arionus.
The car accident that Jeremy was involved in, would not have taken him from us, if he had only remembered to use his seatbelt. We ask you to honor his memory and the ones you love, by always remembering to "Buckle Up."
