Jeremy Clay Pickering, 41, of Nashville, beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, passed from this life Monday in Murfreesboro.

Jeremy attended McGavock High School and worked in the construction trade.

He is survived by his mother: Sherri Bussard; his father: Dwayne Pickering (Delene); a brother: Jason Pickering; a nephew: Colby Pickering; and a sister: Lora Pickering.

Jeremy is also survived by his two grandmothers: Eula Pickering and Joyce Martin; along with numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and dear friends that he loved.

He had his struggles and weaknesses, but he had the prettiest eyes, cutest grin and laugh, best hugs and biggest heart. Jeremy loved music. He loved children, old people and animals ... and they loved him back.

He leaves behind a family and friends that love him unconditionally and will miss him always. May God have mercy on his soul.

A casual gathering to honor the memory of Jeremy is planned for Sunday. Immediate family will meet together at the home of his mother at 2 p.m. for an intimate memorial service. Close friends of the family are welcome to visit from 3-5 p.m. to express their condolences and share memories.

A graveside service will be 2 p.m. Wednesday at Mosheim Central Cemetery.
