In Memory of Jeremy Churchwell [ionfx]

It is with great sadness that we hear about the passing of Jeremy Churchwell, known to the Renderosity Community as artist ionfx, on March 5, 2007. (Link)

Jeremy with his grandfather.

"Jeremy passed away on Monday, March 5, 2007. He passed way before his time due to complications with a long standing illness. Few knew that Jeremy was ill, and he would never let the ones that did know the extent of his pain and suffering.

He was a wonderful father, friend, artist, and so much more. He touched the lives of anyone he came in contact with, and will be missed dearly.

He really loved his art...whether it be poetry, painting, drawing or computer graphics. He didn’t have a favourite, he loved them all. He had a passion for everything he did in life and shared that with everyone he loved.

As long as we remember him he will always be with us, we love him and miss him dearly."


The Renderosity Community extends our deepest sympathies and best wishes to Jeremy's family and friends. He will be greatly missed. Please join with us in sending Jeremy's family and friends our condolences.

We also invite you to take a few moments to view Jeremy's Renderosity Art Gallery.

My prayers are with his family and friends may they know the comfort that he is not suffering anymore and is finally at peace.

By: Thandaluz on 4/10/07
The abstract works done in 2D by Jeremy's they are spectacular.
They show a deep knowledge in the art of painting, and mainly they portray a great lightness of the soul.
I didn't accompany your works a lot, but a tear river tried to sprout in my eyes, that due to the respect and admiration that I have for all the artists, of that and of other communities.
Your absence will be noticed, but your works will comfort us for the lack of your presence.
My feelings the family and friends.
That the shine of the stars guides him/her for the stranger's roads, be where it is.
A kiss in the heart.

An incredible artist whose career was cut too short. His loss diminishes the entire community, but the greater loss is to those who knew him personally. I wish that I had been one of those.

A young life that passes away is always tragic. So many things unfulfilled. May God bless his soul.


By: BlissfullyInsane on 2/9/08
Almost a year has past, and still, the pain has begun to ease, but will never vanish. I miss you, shit head. Life's just not the same without you. I never knew how close we were until you were gone. I never knew how much I'd miss you and how miserable life without you would be until you weren't here anymore. I know your friends and the rest of our family miss you, but fucking christ, I'm still not sure how I'm supposed to live without you.

My thanks to the renderosity community for the memorial and the kind comments. I know that Jeremy will forever be missed by all who's lives he touched.
