Jamey “Juke” Cranstoun, of Mullica Hill, NJ, passed away on April 19, 2015 at the age of 47.
Beloved husband for 12 years of Kimberley Cranstoun (nee Biddulph), devoted father of Caeley Elisabeth Cranstoun. Dear brother of Mark Cranstoun and his wife Kelly, Steve Cranstoun and his wife Landi and Anne Marie Kunz and her husband Kevin. Jamey was predeceased by his parents, Stanley and Noreen Cranstoun (Nunziato).
“I paint a little, work out a little, play guitar a little and play soccer A LOT!” I’m a quiet, normal, shy guy who eats his vegetables (usually), goes to church on Sundays, and likes to learn new things. I’m a Jack of all trades looking for a Jill’.
This was the description of himself that Jamey placed on a dating website. It typifies him, especially the soccer part. It was also the description that led his wife, Kim, to respond back to Jamey after he initially reached out to her on that website.
Jamey was a quiet, humble and kind soul. He was the ballast to his wife, Kim’s frequent fluctuations. He was a dedicated and devoted father who adored his daughter Caeley. In fact, Jamey’s main goals in life were never career or financial success: his goals were simple. He wanted to marry, have children (he’d hoped for 4–his lucky number) and live in an old fixer-upper home with a white picket fence out front. He was able to achieve some of his dreams.
Jamey was a helpful and brilliant employee during his 10 year career at TD Bank. He made many close and devoted friends there.
He was a beast on the soccer field. He wasn’t a goal scorer. He definitely wasn’t the tallest man on the field. But he was the player every teammate wanted out there–solid, driven, wise dedicated to winning and doing whatever it took to win.
He was a tender youngest child to his parents Stan and Noreen. He was a loving and caring to his brothers Mark, Steve and his sister Anne Marie. He was a playful and helpful uncle to his nieces and nephews. He was a friend to many and a help to all he met.
