Jerad Adam Strickland

Died at 28 years old.

Jerad passed away at only 28 years old.

At 6 foot, 9 inches, and oversized frame, strength came easy to him. To those of us who knew him, his size was dwarfed in comparison to the love of friends and the laughter he could bring them.

At times he found self-support working with the Internet and a willingness, even as a young boy, helping animals, making it a career.

He is survived by his father, Adam, his mother, Francine, a younger brother, Austin, and extended family and friends — a number too large to count.

God bless you son.

A celebration of life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at Copper Mountain College for all that wish to attend.
