Jeremy Clayton McAlmond


(Feb. 4, 2006)

A remembrance of Jeremy Clayton McAlmond, 29, was held Saturday, Feb. 11 in Denver, Colo.

The son of Scott and IvaLee (Fulton) McAlmond, he was born May 18, 1976, and died Saturday, Feb. 4.

After graduating from high school in 1994, he enlisted with the United States Marine Corps. A graduate of Camp Pendleton, Jeremy served his country proudly for six years.

One of the family’s proudest moments was when he achieved the elite status of becoming an embassy guard. He was stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Bonn, Germany, as well as at the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which was being rebuilt after the terrorist bombing.

At the time of his death, Jeremy was pursuing a college degree from Metropolitan State University in Denver.

Friends and family will always remember Jeremy’s infectious grin and his fierce appetite for fun, family and a home-cooked meal.

Left behind are his parents, Scott and IvaLee McAlmond of Denver; his sister and her family, Jill and Ryan Schmidt, Cameron and Morgan of Denver; his brother, Justin of Denver; his grandparents, Chris and Maxine Fulton of Powell; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Harlan and June McAlmond.
