Jonathan F. Stringer passed away Jan. 9, 2020. He was on a job site, helping save a man from a collapsing trench, he succeeded. It was Jon’s nature, helping others. He was born May 4, 1995, in Everett, Wash., and attended schools in Tenino, Tumwater and Rochester.
Jon had many great loves, including his family and friends, baseball and fishing. Jonathan played baseball on seasonal teams that spanned the year. He kept up to date on team and player stats, especially his favorite team, the Mariners. Jon was a fierce competitor until he threw a pitch that blew out his elbow, resulting in a cast and the end of his seasons. Fishing gave him joy. He delighted in reeling in dinner or just getting fortunate when everyone else was snagging algae. What Jon liked most about fishing was it gave him time to sort his thoughts.
He was devoted to his family. There are many members, but his greatest happiness was his daughter, Remington and fiance, Ashlee Thompson. Their lives made him laugh and strive to be a better man.
Jonathan is survived by Ashlee and Remington; as well as his parents, Rod and Kristi Stringer; sisters, Tish, Ashley Edwards (Jon) and Kara Brown; brothers, Robby and Chris; niece, Rylee Edwards; nephew, Wesson Reynolds; and so many others who were a part of his life.
A celebration of life remembrance will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020, at South Sound Manor, 455 North St. SE, Tumwater, WA 98501. In lieu of flowers, there is a Go-Fund-Me page in his name set up for Jonathan’s family. Please share memories at www.FuneralAlternatives.org.
