Jeremy was born July 4, 1982 in Longview, Washington to Ken and Patti (Wirkkala) Wills. He grew up in Skandia, enjoying the outdoors and fishing trips with his family. Jeremy graduated from Gwinn High School, Class of 2001, and then attended NMU and served in the National Guard. He worked as a maintenance and janitorial technician for many years.

In his spare time, Jeremy enjoyed fishing, playing the guitar and spending time with his family, friends and pets.

Marie, Ontario; nieces, Elise and Claire Hopper; and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins in many states. He was preceded in death by his infant brother, Zachary.

Memorial services will be held at 3:00 pm on Saturday, January 12th at Eastwood Apostolic Lutheran Church, Negaunee, with Rev. Dale Niskanen and Jeremy’s uncle, Rev. Orval Wirkkala, officiating. The family will greet relatives and friends from 1:00 pm until the time of services at 3:00 pm at the church on Saturday, and also at a luncheon immediately following services in the church fellowship hall. Honorary Pallbearers are Matthew Marks, Brandon and Corbin Davidson, Alexander Wills and Zach Korpi.
