Jaret Everett Buchanan

May 1, 1996 - July 11, 2016

Jaret Everett Buchanan, 20, passed away July 11, 2016.  He was born May 1, 1996 to Rachel Buchanan at Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks, Alaska.  Jaret graduated from Layton High School.

Our beloved son, brother and friend; Jaret was raised in Layton, Utah where he attended and graduated from Layton High School the class of 2014.  In high school, Jaret excelled in competing for his debate team, as well as discovering his love and passion for music.

No matter where Jaret lived, or stood, he was a friend to those around him.  Whether for his family or his peers, he always stood up for those in need.  Through his inclusive nature, love and humor, Jaret could always bring a smile to a face, and help those who felt alone feel loved.

He was a brother to all, and it is for these qualities that his family and many friends will remember him so fondly and miss him so dearly.

Jaret is survived by his mom, Rachel; his sister, Nadia; grandmother, Dianne R. Smith; and many Aunts and Uncles who loved him dearly.

Hello I just happened to read Jaret's obituary and felt compelled to write. He was just getting into manhood and sounds like a great guy. I'm so sorry for your loss! It is my hope that some thoughts from the Bible will bring you some hope, comfort and peace. It was never God's intention that we should die. When He put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, he also put before them the prospect of living forever happy and in good health. (Genesis 1:28) Our creator has not given up on that original plan..perfect live on paradise earth...even though Satan, Adam and Eve messed up (Isaiah 55:10-11) The Bible tells us that it is Satan who is responsible for death, and not God as some would tell us. (Hebrews 2:14) Our creator Jehovah God sent his Son Jesus Christ to ransom us from death and to destroy the works of the Devil (1 John 3:8) Jesus said: "I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me will live though he dies." (John 11:25) With Jesus Christ enthroned as King of God's Kingdom, resurrection of the dead - including Jaret - and a restoration of paradise on earth is assured. It is My hope that until that time comes, you will find hope, comfort and peace in these promises from God. R/ Martin

Our deepest sympathies. We don't know you but your son sounds like our son. He was 14 and passed in January. He was so loved, and reached out to those in the margins, loving those that felt unloved. Please reach out to us if you want.

We will always remember Jaret as a funny tease. He had a great sense of humor. We will sorely miss him. Rachel and Nadia, let us know if you ever need anything. Love, Graham, Janet and Family
