Jeremiah was born April 22, 1981 in Mexia, Texas to James and Barbara Abraham. Jeremiah loved the Lord and was baptized at an early age. He attended Mexia First Assembly Church and, later, moved to Coolidge where he attended the Cowboy Church of Hubbard.
After graduating from Wortham High School, he attended TSTC in Waco where he took courses in diesel mechanics and courses to become a forklift operator. After finishing college, he worked for John Deere. He was presently working at the Mexia State School as a Therapist Technician.
Jeremiah was easy going, had a very outgoing personality, made friends easily and never met a stranger. He was a true friend and always willing to do anything for anyone at any time. Although Jeremiah was single and had no children of his own, he had many kids who looked up to him as a father, role model and friend. That was just how he was!
Jeremiah had many hobbies that he loved doing; he loved riding 4 wheelers through pastures and mud holes, hunting and fishing. He was a country boy through and through. As he got older, he loved to dance and if there was a dance floor near, you could bet he would be dancing on it. He was known as a dancing fool. He also loved playing music, dominoes and hanging out with family and friends. Jeremiah was loved by everyone he met.
Sadly, as full as his life was, it was cut short. However, Jeremiah has gone to be with our Lord and Savior, his dad and many other family members who were waiting to meet him at heaven’s gates.
Jeremiah was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, James and Mary Abraham; maternal grandparents, Amos and Pearlie Richardson; father, James Abraham, Jr.; and sister, Cynthia Abraham Binkley.
He leaves to cherish his memory, his mother, Barbara Abraham of Mexia; and four siblings, James Abraham and wife, Misty of Mexia, Jonathan Abraham of Dallas, Joseph “Exstella” Abraham of Sandy and Mary Wilson and husband, Jeremy of Hubbard; and step-mother, Marie Abraham. He also leaves behind a girlfriend and unborn child; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
