Obituary for Jason Adam Ghekiere

Jason Adam Ghekiere, a resident of Milford, MI died on June 18th 2017 at the age of 20.
He is survived by his parents, Richard and Kelley Ghekiere; his sister, Katelyn (Wesley) Richards of Grand Rapids; grandparents; LeRoy and Martha Ghekiere of Metamora; aunts and uncles, Shelley (Derek) Pauck, Judy (Matt) Bunch, Kim (Chai) Kamolsiri, Krista Kaufman; and many cousins, Laura and Clare Pauck, Madison and Sydney Bunch, Neil, Scott, Ana and Rico Kamolsiri, and Misha Kaufman. He is preceded by grandparents Bernice and Richard Ridgeway, and Cedric Billings.

Jason was born on March 15th, 1997. After living in Farmington Hills for many years, the family moved to Milford, Michigan in 2013. Jason graduated from Milford High School in 2015.
An avid hiker, Jason adored the outdoors. After moving to Milford, he worked to pursue his dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail. In 2016, he finally got his chance and spent the summer taking in nature and connecting with other passionate hikers. He was an enthusiastic researcher who enjoyed honing his wilderness skills, learning about photography and videography, and spending time at the family cabin. Even after returning home from the Trail, Jason continued hiking and camping the North Country Trail in the Manistee National Park.

Jason’s genuine sense of humor never failed to make people laugh. He could memorize movie scenes and reenact them as if he had written the script himself. With a penchant for Tarantino and Scorsese films, Jason appreciated good cinematography and loved sharing his insights with all who would listen.

He was truly kind-hearted and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him. We will always cherish the memories we were lucky enough to have with Jason.

We will celebrate his life on Monday, June 26th at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty St. in Milford at 1pm with a short service at 2pm. A reception will follow at the Ghekiere family home. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to honor Jason’s memory by contributing to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. Donations can be made in his name at
