Jace L.G. Carmack of Woodbury, Tennessee passed away on Saturday, February 4, 2023. Preceding him in death were his mother, Brittany Annette Carmack; great grandparents, Willie L.G. & Dianna Catherine Carmack and Haskel Arzo & Mary Elizabeth Merritt; and cousin, DJ Carmack.
He is survived by his father, Gibson Lawrence Siviter, grandparents, Billy Ray & Mary Ellen Carmack, Lawrence & Samantha Siviter, and David & Melinda Stacey; sisters, Aubree Elaine Carmack and Journee Jade Carmack; uncle, Haskel Dewayne (Jackie Caffey) Carmack; aunt, Kaitlyn Jeanette (Dalton Green) Carmack; step-uncle, Billy "BJ" Smith; step-aunt, Elizabeth Belcher; cousins, Remington Kenneth Ryder Carmack, Colton James Carmack, Jeremiah Ray Caffey, Lazarus Carmack, Bronson Carmack, Elizabeth Jane Carmack, and Tinsley Vanessa Caffey; and several great great aunts and uncles, great aunts and uncles, and extended family.
Jace's arrival was a highly anticipated event. Brittany always wanted a boy, and she was just certain that he'd be a momma's boy since his birthday was going to be so close to hers. But Brittany wasn't the only one excited. She and Gibson both stumbled upon so much more happiness and love when they figured out they were pregnant. The rest of the family also stood at the ready to welcome baby Jace into the world, and they were prepared to spoil him rotten so maybe his head wouldn't be as hard as Brittany's was.
Aubree and Journee were looking forward to being big sisters and to little Jace becoming their baby doll. Brittany already planned on playing dress up and getting him his very own set of boots to wear. She and Gibson had so many experiences they were overjoyed to share with their bundle of joy. Four wheeling, fishing, camping, and trips to the beach reached the top of the list. They wanted to get him out on a boat and hoped he loved the water as much as they did.
Oh, and the tales to be told! From Gibson and Brittany growing up to all of the family adventures had and memories made, they were ready to have enough stories to fill an entire library of books. Most importantly though, they wanted Jace's life centered around family. Being around those who loved him and encouraged him would have been Jace's life. Even though he never made it into the arms of his family, he traded them for the arms of Jesus.
