Jeremy Lee Worley

April 10, 1979 - February 09, 2019

Jeremy Lee Worley "Soldiers that carry their lives in their hands, carry the grace of God in their hearts."
"I sought the Lord and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame."
Jeremy Lee Worley, 39, of Beckley, formerly of Glen Daniel, lost a courageous 7-year battle to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder on February 9, 2019.
Jeremy was born on April 10, 1979 in Beckley, WV, to Dennis and Donna Daniels Worley.
In addition to his parents he leaves behind his brother and best friend, Matthew and his sister-in-law, Raygen Worley of Beckley and a daughter, Luma Surratt.
Jeremy was a 1997 graduate of Liberty High School. Not long after finishing high school, Jeremy enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and later the Army National Guard. He served a total of 10 years. Jeremy was stationed at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, South Korea and Okinawa, Japan. During his service, Jeremy had the honor of working alongside former President George H.W. Bush and former President William J. Clinton during the United States' aid of the Tsunami of Indonesia. Jeremy did a tour of duty with Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan where he ended his military career due to an injury he sustained. Jeremy was honorably discharged in January 2012.
Jeremy became a student of The Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute of Pittsburgh. He loved preparing dishes for family and friends. Jeremy spent his days playing music. He had a love for the drums that was only matched with his love for his cat, Callie. Jeremy is also survived by a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.
Jeremy was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Delmer and Ruth Worley, his maternal grandparents, Earl and Matilda Daniels, and a special aunt, Virginia Daniels.
Pallbearers will be Greg Settle, Bill Daniels, Christopher Daniels, James Sizemore, Kennith Ellis and Kevin Daniels.

Donna, sending prayers for you and your family. I know loosing a child is a devastating pain. You were so kind to us when we lost 2 sisters, 3 months apart in the summer. You always seemed to have just the right thing to say to us when we had a bad day. You will always be remembered for your kindness. Thank you for your service Jeremy.
