Jeffrey Mitchell Ker was born January 11, 1984, to Dennis Ralph Ker and Junia Kay Mitchell Ker in Denver, Colorado. The youngest of seven, this sweet little redhead with bright blue eyes, was adored by his older siblings. He was full of clever jokes and had a kind and generous soul. Jeff had a great imagination and always aspired to be a superhero. From an early age he leapt across furniture in his cape on a quest to save the world. That superhero heart led him to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Anchorage, Alaska. He later joined the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman serving in Dentistry at the Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni, Japan. Jeff had ambitions to pursue education to further his medical skills. In his down time, Jeff enjoyed reading, writing screenplays, and was an avid gamer. He is dearly loved and will be sorely missed.
Jeff is survived by his mother, Junia Ker; his siblings, Richard (Julie) Ker, Michael (Sara) Ker, Randy (Amie) Ker, Krystal (Leandro) Souza; and 18 nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, Dennis Ker; his brother, Brett Ker; and his sister, May Ker.
