Jeremy Kendon Cutler
Jerm to his family, and Jer to his friends, left this crazy life July 27, 2022 after a hard fight from complications of liver cirrhosis and kidney failure. He was born on September 1, 1971 to Jay Hill and Diane Jacobs. He was later adopted by Barton Cutler. Even though Jeremy came into this life at a small 4 lbs. 10 oz, he was larger than life and lived his life to the fullest. If you knew Jeremy as an adult, imagine him as a kid… there was not much of a difference. The grease on his hands started at an early age. His bike fixit shop was always open to the neighborhood kids. The required payment was to be a participant in one of his many Evel Knievel stunts. Jeremy had a great love of the outdoors. When he was young, he spent his summers working at his grandpa’s house, where he learned skills that would benefit him throughout his life. He loved going to mountain man rendezvous with his family and participating in the Boy Scouts. He worked hard to earn his Eagle Scout Award. Jeremy graduated from Layton High School in 1989. He and Amy Thompson were married on September 9, 1995. They later divorced, but in true Jeremy fashion, stayed the best of friends. Everyone always knew Jeremy’s hands to be calloused and have grease under his nails. He worked hard and earned every callous. He had many occupations during his life, starting with a paper route when he was a kid. This was no easy feat for a kid that was a severe asthmatic. He worked as a welder, excavator, dump truck driver, and auto mechanic. He worked for Layton City in public works for several years. He worked at HAFB as an aircraft painter. He made lifelong friends over the years while working at his various jobs. Everyone who has ever had Jeremy help with a car, take a second and smile! He LOVED helping people! No matter who you were, friend or stranger, he would give his time and talents to help out. Jeremy’s shop in his garage was his pride and joy. He was always happy to give a visitor a tour of the shop and introduction to his latest project, which rarely was for himself. He kept an extra chair handy while working out there for company. If the garage door was open, the shop was open. Jeremy never had any children of his own, but through his friendships,
became a dad to many. He always loved and took care of these “kids” as if they were his own. Jeremy loved watching NASCAR racing, ATV rides at the dunes, monster truck rallies, “bro dates”, motorcycles, jacked-up trucks, restoring old vehicles with Bill, and the adventures they had acquiring the vehicles.
Jeremy was a talented artist and glass etcher. He never let on how sick he was and always had a positive attitude, even on his worst days. Something he said on the way home from one of his last doctor visits was “when you are young you think you are Superman, and think you can do anything, but it catches up
with you, and this sucks! I would tell everyone to take care of themselves.”
Jeremy was preceded in death by his dad, Barton Cutler, dad Jay Hill, brother Brandon, and his grandparents that he loved so much. He is survived by his mom Diane Cutler, siblings Bret (Teresa) Cutler, Chany “Doodle” (Bretton)
Cox, Aaron (Emilee) Cutler, Karin (Troy) Rasmussen, adopted Dad, Bill (Patti) Rasmussen, nieces and nephews that thought that he was the coolest uncle ever, many dear friends that called him brother, and his buddy Copper. Please remember Jeremy by paying forward kind and selfless acts as he did for
others. His family would like to thank his guardian angel Weslie Tomlin for the many years she took care of Jeremy, his health care providers, and the wonderful ICU team at Davis Hospital.
