Jace RoederDecember 19, 1998 ~ October 21, 2016 (age 17)
Our hearts were broken Friday October 21, 2016 when we learned that our beloved Jace, 17, had passed away from injuries he sustained in a motor vehicle accident while visiting his great grandparents in Indiana.
Our son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and dear friend, will be sorely missed by all that were lucky enough to have known him during his short time with us. Jace was born December 19, 1998 to Holly (Webb) Garrido and Matthew Roeder. He was excited to graduate this year from Bountiful High School with his many good friends and the class of 2017. Jace loved his family very much. He had a special, bonding relationship with his Mother, Father, Step-Father, and each one of his five adored siblings. He loved spending time with his family and in return, they loved his fun, joking personality, contagious laugh, strong opinions and sarcastic antics. Jace was a gifted athlete, with a very competitive nature, who loved soccer and playing sports with his family. He also loved hunting with his Father and friends. He always looked forward to working with his friends at the Boondocks Fun Center in Kaysville, UT. He was a natural born leader with endless potential in life. He enjoyed helping others, was always kind, determined, loved to learn and push himself along with his co-workers and peers to always do their best. He was truly an example to us all. Those close to Jace will miss his big, caring heart, warm smile and his genuine soul.
We love you Jace, more than you could ever know. We only had you for a short time, but you will live in our hearts forever.
Jace is survived by his Mother, Holly (Webb) Garrido and Step-Father, Christopher Garrido; Father, Matthew Roeder and significant other Kallie Knight; Sisters, Brittany Roeder and Haylee Garrido; Brothers, Kamryn Garrido, Kingston Knight/Roeder, and Zakery Garrido. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother Jan Blackwell, his Aunt McCall Garrido, and Great-grandmother Gladys Lemons.
