Jon A. McFetridge

Jon A. McFetridge
Jon A. McFetridge, 15, of Stanchfield, was chosen to go with God on January 6, 2000 after a courageous fight during his stay at University of Minnesota Hospital.

He was the pride and joy of his parents, Mark and Teresa McFetridge of Stanchfield. Always amazing and often surprising them with “his opinion.”

His love for racing he shared with his parents with the excitement he showed (and let’s not forget his bugging) when he knew the family had plans to go to the races or to the Silicone Speedway where he acquired his own drivers license and even beat his Mom. Of course, Jon won every race he was in. He loved to drive anything he could get his hands on, his tractor, helping drive the snowmobile, his racing programs on his computer and his matchbook cars. “Gentlemen, start your engines” will be forever heard in the hearts of all those who knew this about him.

He always knew how to bring a smile to his grandparents, Leone Dimler of Nampa, Idaho, James and Ruth McFetridge of St. Paul and Audrey and Jerry Simon of McGregor, MN. He always had a “BIG bear hug” for them at every visit and would melt their hearts with his “family moments.” Jon had an endless energy for life and would wear out his aunts, uncles, cousins and friends with his love for walking anywhere, but mostly in the woods by his house. He had a way of doing this little yoga trance for a few short minutes whenever he got tired and then he would be recharged and ready to go again. Unfortunately, he never shared his secret of more energy with the rest of us who often had trouble keeping up with him.

Jon touched the hearts of so many people in his 15 years. He made every caregiver that had the pleasure of working with him feel special and loved. He had a contagious smile and laugh that would melt your heart. These special people who gave their time and energy working with Jon got the joy of seeing Jon’s courage and genuine love for them and for life itself. He even knew how to steal the hearts of complete strangers who would meet him for the first time.

His family would like to express appreciation to all those who took time to know and love Jon. He was a truly special young man who gave us all something that will never be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to Health Dimensions Rehabilitation Horse Riding Program are preferred.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 12 at Cambridge Lutheran Church with visitation from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11 at Carlson-Labatte Funeral Home and for one hour prior to the service at the church.
