Obituary for Jeremiah "JJ" Jason Gebers

Jeremiah "JJ" Gebers passed away on January 1, 2018 at his residence. Born on March 17, 1978, he was the son of George F. Gebers Jr. and Barbara (McDougle) Donley. JJ lived in McClure, Ohio with the love of his life, his fiance, Crystal Gerken and her children, Kylie and Rylie, who he loved as his own. He is also survived by his mom, Barbara Donley; dad, George Gebers Jr. ; brother, George (April) Gebers; sister, Elizabeth (Steve) Brown; step-brother, Joseph Donley; special brother, Jason Brown; special people, Dione Burdue, Iona Burdue,and Mark Bollenbacher; nieces and nephews, Taylor, Nicole, Jason, Bryce, Ethan, Tristan, Toria, Sara; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his step-father, Terry Donley; step-mother, Cindy Gebers; maternal grandparents, Leona and Roland McDougle; and paternal grandparents, George Gebers Sr., and Jo Gottschalk.
JJ was employed at Lee Groll Tree Service, and he also had his own woodcutting business. He was the invincible one among us, the one who had looked death in the face and laughed so many times. He always refused to say no to any challenge. He was the one we all worried about, but no one believed he would actually ever die. JJ lived life to the fullest. He would never hesitate to pick up and drive to Florida or New York with no notice. JJ was the one so many called who needed a hand or a pull out of a ditch. He left an impression everywhere he went. He was kind and would help anyone. JJ loved his family and friends with his whole heart. JJ passed in his sleep from natural causes.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, January 6, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Walker-Hoening Mortuary in Napoleon. Funeral Services will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 7th at the funeral home, with an hour of visitation preceding the service. Burial will follow at Hockman Cemetery in McClure, Ohio.
