You're 14 years old. If your life is going to be alright, The Offspring will die before you do.

How Cool Is That? :)



As a raucous song about defying adversity echoed inside the Delta Pentecostal Church, Jeremy Babyak’s mother sobbed and leaned her head against the shoulder of her only surviving son.

“Staring at the sun” by The Offspring was Babyak’s favourite tune, a kind of anthem for a determined, hard-working young man who overcame a tough childhood with determination and humour.

“There’s more to living than only surviving/Maybe I’m not there, but I’m still trying,” Dexter Holland sang as the CD played to more than 200 mourners inside the 112 Avenue church on Thursday.

Babyak, 19, house-mate Carmen Johnson, 20, and her sister Cassandra Johnson, 12, died after an early-morning fire raged through a one-storey rental house in the 7800 block of 115 Street on Dec. 12.

His younger brother Aaron Babyak, 18, managed to escape.

Aaron and mother Sherrie Moore hugged each other close as pastor Jeff Beck described Jeremy Babyak as an “everyday hero.”

Friend and co-worker Whitney Grant recalled a fearless and funny man who showed her how to be brave about handling exotic animals such as a cayman alligator and tarantula spider at the store Babyak managed.

Close friend Joe Brousseau and mother Mara Brousseau got to know Babyak when he ended up living in their home for about a year.

“I’ve seen him wear the same pair of socks for three days because he gave his last clean pair to Aaron,” Mara Brousseau said.

“All we can do is be more like him,” said close friend Nick Uttley.

Funeral services for Carmen and Cassandra Johnson were scheduled for Friday afternoon at Leader press time.

The ceremony at the Valley View Funeral Home on 72 Avenue was to be conducted by Reverend Ray MacDonald, chaplain at Vancouver General Hospital where Carmen Johnson died five days after the fire.

At least three people were scheduled to deliver tributes to Carmen, who overcame her own adversity to win admission to the University of Victoria a few days before the fire.

Her little sister Cassandra was having a sleep-over at her big sister’s home the night of the fire.

A poem chosen by the family for the service reads in part “bury your sorrows in doing good deeds/Miss me – but let me go.”

Donations to the “Johnson Family Trust” can be made at any Envision Credit Union branch to account number 293654.

Donations in care of “Aaron Babyak in trust” can be made at any branch of Coast Capital Savings.
