Hancock -- Jeremy Daniel Kane, 38, passed away unexpectedly at home January 11, 2019. He was born on November 8, 1980 in Blue Hill to Robert and Lori (Rich) Kane.

Jeremy attended Hancock Grammar School, Hancock County Technical Center, and graduated Ellsworth High in the year 2000. He was employed many years at Friend & Friend Motorsports, Ellsworth, as a phone receptionist.

Jeremy was a courageous young man with an infectious smile and a twinkle in his eye. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, and friend. Jeremy had a passion for life and adventure unlike any other. He loved scouting, NASCAR Racing, billiards, travel, photography, spending time with family & friends, and playing bass; a talent in which he had taught himself. In his last year of life, his most treasured time was spent in his camper at his family’s camp on Abram’s Pond. Jeremy always looked forward to hanging out at a camp with his father, Robert and his brother, Jacob. Much to his dislike, his mother was always his biggest cheerleader.
In the words of one of his oldest and closest friends; “Strong is an understatement when talking about Jeremy Kane. He was a warrior! Boundaries were nothing because he is a “Kane”born with Spina Bifida. He turned no’s into yes’s. Jeremy did not let his disability hold him back. Told he was never going to walk or ride a bike. He and his amazing parents worked SO hard in proving the doctors wrong. He was one of the neighborhood kids racing around on bike or on foot, rolling down the hill then climbing back up. His smile! Happy, proud, naughty, tired, pissed, he had a beaming smile no matter the occasion. Jeremy found love in photography, playing the bass, traveling around, camp, drinking beers, being around family and friends. He enjoyed his life. He didn’t take things for granted. Jeremy’s can/will do attitude, gave him 38 years with us.”

Jeremy is survived by his parents, Robert and Lori (Rich) Kane of Hancock; his sister Jaclyn; his brothers, Jacob & Justin; and his loving nieces Sophia & Mersedes Kane; his paternal Uncles Reginald, David, Gary, and Ronald Kane; paternal Aunts Cheryl (Kane) Keep and Pye (Kane) Haslam & her life partner Matt McDevitt; his maternal Grandmother Marion (Moon) Rich; maternal Aunts Judy (Rich) & husband Cliff Albee, and Mary (Rich) & husband Mark Danico. He is further survived by many, many loving cousins and close friends who were all a special part of his life. Jeremy is predeceased by his maternal Grandfather Philip Rich and a very special maternal Great-Grandmother Nannie Moon; paternal Grand-Parents Reginald Kane & Greta (Rankin) Kane, and paternal Uncle Bruce Kane.

Jeremy leaves us with his legacy of hope, triumph and strength. We love you and will see you again down the road.

A viewing will be held 1pm–2pm , Sat. January 19, 2019 with a Time of Remembrance led by Pastor Bob Maddocks from 2pm–3pm at the Jordan-Fernald Funeral Home, 113 Franklin St. Ellsworth followed by a Celebration of Life at the Ellsworth Masonic Lodge from 4pm – 7pm.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Jeremy's loved ones, as there are many. He was there for my son when he had an accident that left him with a brain injury, but Jeremy did not judge him for that and treated him the same. There is no doubt that Jeremy is in Heaven telling us all not to worry or feel sorry for him. Thank you Jeremy we will miss you. Craig Robbins, Dustin and Family.
