It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Jeremy Wightman, of Victoria, B.C. on February 26, 2021 at the age of 43 years.

He will be lovingly remembered by his son, Tyler Tasker; his parents Johanna & Rick Wightman and Alex & Lorrie Gold; his sister Tawnya (Branden); nephew Caleb and niece Brooke; several aunts, uncles and cousins; and by his numerous friends.

Jeremy was born and raised in Blenheim, Ontario and later in life travelled across Canada and resided in the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.

Jeremy was a business man in his own form. He studied Tool and Die, and went on to help with the construction of many homes. He was a man of many talents. He lived life in the fast lane even at times when most would have kicked it down a gear. He was playful in nature and had a love of children and animals. He will be fondly remembered for his smile and infectious laugh. He was loved by all who knew him.

I will always have many great memories of Jeremy. My first encounter with Jeremy was in summer school. That laugh I grew to love was directed at me from the back of the room. Jeremy and I had a wild ride and I will always hold those memories close. He will be missed. I can still hear his infectious laugh and smart mouth. My heart goes out to his family and many friends. Until we meet again.

Condolences to all the family. I remember Jeremy from my younger days when I would spend time with my sister ; his Aunt Lisa and his Uncle Tony. Jeremy was a fun, kind, bright soul. I remember him as always with a smile n his face. Again our deepest condolences to you all.

Jeremy and I spent many good times together. I’ll always remember his big heart and love for animals. His constant laughter was infectious to them who knew him. He’ll always hold a special place in my heart. I’ve thought about you lots since I heard the unfortunate news. Even though we lost contact by the end, I’ll always remember you as a brother. I hope your happy in life after death. I’ve heard you can be free, and swim, laugh, and joke constantly! I’ll miss you always. Sarah

We are sad to hear about the loss of Jeremy You have our Deepest Sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.

Jeremey was a regular at my house for many years, always smiling happy and never a problem always the laughter. His smile and chuckel will be missed by so many 💜

We want to express our sympathy and let you know that our thoughts are with you. We both had Jeremy as a student - Grade 1 for Madeline and Grade 7 for me. There are students who you remember more than others and for me Jeremy is one of those. Every day that year Jeremy would come into my class smiling and happy to be there. We got along exceptionally well. Yes, he had his impish ways - he gave me one of the most memorable laughs I had in my career. When I taught him, he was young and indestructible and possessed the most contagious smile. And that is the way I will remember him.

Our condolences to all of your family. Thinking of you at this difficult time.

Never a dull moment when Jeremy was around . He will be missed by all. Rest easy.

With deepest sympathy at this time of sorrow, may everyone's thoughts and prayers comfort your days with peace, love and strength. The heart is never ready, the time is never right to say goodbye. Good night and sweet dreams Jeremy❤️.
