Jeremiah Eugene McFarland was born on May 12, 2003, in Nashville, Tennessee, to Alotha Jené Mayes and Eugene McFarland.
He was a very loving and caring person with a smile that would light up your soul. With the love language of quality time, it was necessary to him that everyone spent time together and got along. There was not a single person that Jeremiah did not like. From a young age, Jeremiah would often mediate disagreements among friends and family members. He loved and cared for his younger relatives, like his children. At age ten, he was dubbed the family babysitter of the year.
Jeremiah was extremely talented. There was nothing he could not do. He drew, sang, created, and played music; he was exceptionally gifted. As young as age four, Jeremiah would create elaborate works of art from memory. The question, “What is it?” He was never asked about his drawings as they contained great detail. He began playing the viola at age nine, and by the time he was eleven, he was playing in the Murfreesboro youth orchestra. Simultaneously, he played the trumpet in the Smyrna Middle School band. In high school, he played the euphonium and began music production. He has produced over three hundred beats. (https://www.youtube.com/@isthatjay4724)
Jeremiah was a wonderful brother and an extraordinary son. Most of all, he loved his momma. He constantly showed it through words, gifts, and acts of service.
Jeremiah is survived by his mother, father, stepmother (Karen McFarland), two siblings (Paris Melvin and Shilo Reid), and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Jeremiah took his rest on Saturday, December 23, 2023, in Nashville, Tennessee. He will be terribly missed by all who knew and loved him.
