Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family on Jake’s Tribute Wall at detroitcremationsociety.com.
Jake was a free spirit who thrived on helping anyone in need; it didn’t matter what the needs were, he was ready to help. He often referred to himself as “the fixer upper.” He had a zest for life; he loved fishing, riding his motorcycle, cracking jokes, creating smiles, and most of all he loved his children with all his heart. Though he couldn’t see them, there was never a minute of the day he didn’t miss and think of them.
He leaves to cherish many heartfelt memories by his parents; Roque and Brenda De Leon, Frank Pridemore, his sister; Krystal, his brothers; Tom and Dylan (Tiffany), his children; Robert, Eugene Pridemore, Paul Franklin Mancour, Airianna Faith Pridemore, and Serenity Joy Pridemore, his grandmothers; Sandy Smith and Judy Pridemore, his nephews; Alan and Jonathan LaCroix, his niece; Nova Pridemore, as well as several uncles, aunts, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his hero and grandpa; Robert Smith, his grandpa Clarence Pridemore, as well as several great uncles and aunts.
Jake’s obituary was written by his loving family.
