Jeremy “JC” Alan Culbertson
April 10, 1971-June 9, 2020
Jeremy Alan Culbertson, known as JC to his friends and family, passed away unexpectedly on June 9, 2020 at his farm in Redding, Iowa. His passing followed a sharp decline in his health after an accident on a four-wheeler two years ago. He appreciated the love, concern, and care given to him by his family and friends during this difficult time.
He was born on April 10, 1971, the son of Alan Culbertson of Redding, Iowa and Rita Twogood Akers of Perry, Iowa and grew up on a farm in Redding, Iowa. A straight A student, he received his Associates Degree from SW Community College in Iowa. He then went on to study Information Technology, specializing in exchange servers, at Vatterott/Hamilton's in Des Moines where he met Rick Yaw, his long-time teacher, friend, and mentor. He continued his education with numerous other certifications in his field. Jeremy worked as an Information Technology professional at several companies over the years, including American Packaging in Story City and Bauer Built in Paton.
His three children, Keary Rae Proctor Meth, Trenity Aaron Culbertson and Patton Chandler Culbertson, were the lights of his life and he was so proud of them. They would say that he was the most silly, kind-hearted, outgoing Dad a child could have. As well as being a computer whiz, Jeremy was musically gifted like his Grandmother Culbertson. He could play any instrument and enjoyed the saxophone and guitar. He passed on his musical aptitude to his sons and Patton follows in his footsteps with his technical skills, having built his first computer at age 14. He was also an excellent cook and gardener; a talented woodworker; and loved the outdoors. He was very spontaneous and playful, loved to travel and was always anxious to try new things. During his marriage to Heather Proctor Hoffman, he and the family loved their camping and boating outings along with their RV road trips to rodeos and concerts. He loved family reunions, the 4th of July and was a big fireworks fan.
Jeremy was an ordained minister and liked to joke that he married two of his sisters. His sense of humor was legendary. He also volunteered time at his sons’ school, St Patrick’s School in Perry, helping with their technology needs. He was a generous friend and would do anything to help. He had a special relationship with his Aunt Lyla and Uncle Max Dawson, who helped care for him. He named Patton after Max’s favorite general and gave Patton Max’s middle name, Chandler.
Jeremy is preceded in death by his Grandparents, Edrie and Frank Culbertson and Edith and Robert Two good; his Uncle, Max Dawson; and his Aunts, Iris Osborn and Doris McClintock along with his two good friends, Rick Yaw and Dave May.
He is survived by his children, Trenity Aaron Culbertson, Patton Chandler Culbertson and Keary Proctor Meth; his father, Alan L Culbertson and mother, Rita Twogood (Dennis) Akers; his granddaughter, Aspen Meth; his three sisters, Synona Culbertson, Desiree Culbertson and Taishna (Jason) Novak, his aunt Lyla Dawson and uncles Dennis Twogood, Wesley (Diana) Twogood and Roger (Becky) Twogood and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
