December 14, 1977 — April 28, 2024


Jerid William Lyght, 46, of Platteville passed away unexpectedly, thus entering his Heavenly home on April 27, 2024.  Jerid was born on December 14, 1977, to Bernie and Roxanne (Thompson) Lyght and filled their world with great joy.  His parents adored him.  Jerid embodied Love as defined in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “Love is patient, love is kind…” Jerid graduated from Platteville High School in 1996 and began working for his family’s business, Lyghthouse Assisted Living. 


In 2011, God led two souls together. Jerid and Belinda (White) were best friends and each other’s better halves.  Jerid was proud to call Belinda’s daughter, Hannah, his daughter and their family was joined together on April 6, 2013.  They welcomed two additional children to this union, Bernard and Violet. Jerid took great pride in all three of his beautiful children.  His loss will be felt by all who knew him as he was selfless and a natural caretaker.
