PERVICAL- Jeremy Leah Percival from Monitor, Alberta passed away on the May 20, 2013 at the age of 31.
Jeremy was born on June 27, 1981 in Rimbey, Alberta spending most of his life residing in Wainwright, Alberta.  Jeremy fell in love with Suzanne and moved to Monitor where they married and started a family. He quickly became a country boy, who loved to hunt with his sons, ride horses, brand cattle and shear sheep. He had huge aspirations for the ranch and an even bigger collection of farm dogs. He was an active member of the sporting community where he coached soccer and helped with hockey and taught neighboring children everything from riding bikes to roping cattle. He was a member of the Gooseberry Lake Rodeo Association and the Lions Club. He dedicated his life to family, friends, neighbours and the ranch. He was famous for saying “I’m not saying, I’m just saying” and when asked for his opinion on anything from a new hairdo or to the outfit you were wearing, he’d say “honest or nice?”
