Jeremy Charles Reinke

March 30, 1969 — April 11, 2024

Filer, Idaho

Jeremy Charles Reinke, born on March 30, 1969, brought the right kind of mischief into every moment, loving his family and friends with a boundless heart. He was a great man cherished by many, collecting nicknames as easily as he collected friends: Jerm, J-Dawg, The Dude, the greatest houndsman to ever live (he may have only called himself that). Or as he was lovingly referred to by his mother Carla as Jay, Jeff, Jeremy, Chuck, Ryan… Jeremy! Whatever you may have called him, he was a father, husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend.

Jeremy made his last wildly inappropriate, and probably sarcastic comment on April 11, 2024, after a courageous five-year battle with Colorectal Cancer. Throughout his fight, Jeremy exhibited remarkable strength, and resilience facing each challenge with unwavering courage and determination beyond human understanding. As he departed this world surrounded by his parents, wife, and children - Jeremy found solace in the Lord.

His list of accomplishments is extensive, but among them, his two sons – Hudson and Asher stand as his proudest achievements. They are the embodiment of his love, his values, and his greatest joy. His fatherhood playbook was a mix of laughter, warmth, adventure, and shenanigans, leaving an indelible mark on his boys and a legacy of love that will outlast time.

Jeremy’s love for the outdoors and mountains knew no bounds. His adventurous spirit led him to explore remote corners of the wilderness, where he sought the thrill of hunting mountain lions and bears. Yet, beyond the pursuit of game, he found comfort in the rugged beauty of the untamed landscapes. Each expedition was not just a hunt, but a communion with nature. His passion for the great outdoors inspired awe and respect in all who knew him. His spirit will forever roam the mountains he treasured, a testament to a life lived with courage, reverence, and a boundless love for the wild.

He epitomized dedication, and commitment as a journeyman lineman at Western Line Builders. He dedicated his life to ensuring the safety and reliability of the power supply across the western states. Fearlessly, with steady hands, Jeremy illuminated communities, braving challenges to keep the power flowing. 

In Jeremy's eyes, "The Princess Bride" was unequivocally the best movie ever, Robb Thomas the epitome of a musical genius (an odd obsession in his final years), Clint Eastwood the embodiment of toughness, Rush Limbaugh the voice of conservative politics, and that chicks dig El Caminos. His passions were as diverse as they were infectious, leaving a deep mark on all who knew him.

Jeremy's only regrets were indulging in a rotisserie hot dog from a questionable airport stand in Mexico, not being able to ski down the summit of Mt Everest, and not training his faithful dog Yodi to detect cancer. Yet, even in jest, his concern for others shone through. His diagnosis of Colorectal Cancer at the age of 50, with few symptoms, serves as a reminder of the importance of regular screenings. In honor of Jeremy's memory, his family urges everyone to prioritize their health and undergo screenings if they haven't already done so.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 35 years Candy, his sons Hudson and Asher, his parents Brent & Carla Reinke, brothers Jay (Lisa) Reinke, Jeff (Michelle) Reinke, Chuck Reinke, Ryan (Rose) Reinke, and many nieces and nephews.  We would also like to acknowledge our extended family from Western Line Builders, including Kevin (Jo) Smith, Matt King, and Candy Welsh.

In lieu of flowers, please consider contributing to the education fund set up for Hudson and Asher at any First Federal Bank under “Jeremy Reinke Memorial Fund”. Your support will ensure that Jeremy's legacy lives on in the bright futures of his beloved sons. Jeremy’s celebration of life will be hosted at Stonehouse in Twin Falls on Friday, April 19th from 4-7pm.
