Jeremy Lee "Toad" Riordan Obituary
Jeremy Lee Riordan "Toad" July 21, 1987 - July 24, 2012 Jeremy, 25, passed peacefully at home from this life after fighting a lengthy battle to cancer (chordoma). Jeremy lived in Bakersfield all his life, while working at Valley Industrial X-Ray and MMI Services. Jeremy had a huge heart and loved everyone and everything. He was a brave, tall, handsome man who made everyone laugh. He enjoyed life to the fullest, never took life too serious, and always looked at the bright, happy side of life. His kind and adventurous spirit will be a lasting memory for all the people he had ever met. Jeremy would always put a smile on your face through the toughest of times. He enjoyed the beach and, best of all, hanging out with his friends, the "Good Ol Boys." He loved off-roading, jumping his truck, riding motorcycles; but most of all, he loved his mother, Patty. Our deepest gratitude to Dr. El Sayed, Dr. McDermott and staff at UCSF for the care and compassion they showed. A special thank you to Leslie Knox and crew of (AIS), Joey Frost, Kevin Burton (SJCH), Steve and Mel McGowan for support, the special times, love and happiness they brought to Jeremy and his family during the past few years. Jeremy was proud of all his friends with whom he shared close relationships and shared many good times and memories. Jeremy is survived by his parents, Patty and Eric Olson; his beautiful and supporting wife, Jen Jen, who never left his side; sister, Heather and Tim Morgret; brother, Eric Olson, Jr. and Jackie Morovich; aunts, Debbie, Pam, and Christie; uncle, Denny; grandmother, Elaine Corley; sisters, Star and Amber; brothers, Kayne, Justine, Galvin, and Chad; cousins, Hillary, Anthony, Justin, Zander, Easton, Jonathan, Chris, and Lisa; nephews, Zachary, Kennith, Aiden, Deric, and Kobe; niece, Juliann; and the extended Amason, Riordan, and Olson families. Sincere gratitude to Kristi Longshore at Hoffmann Hospice for her personal care in his final days. A celebration of Jeremy's life will be held on Monday, August 13, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. at Greenlawn Memorial Chapel, 3700 River Blvd. For condolences please visit www.greenlawnmortuaryandcemetery.com.
