     Robert and Carol Booker will remember their son Jeremy as a thought and fun loving young man who would do anything for anyone.

     The Bookers spoke to ABC 36 on Monday, and say they'll remember their son as a hero.

     Jeremy Booker's body was found Sunday morning near the Robinson Dam on the Licking River in Harrison County.

     According to officials, Booker and his girlfriend Kimberly Grimes were swimming near the dam when Grimes fell in the water. Booker went in after her, but hit his head and was dragged under by the dam's current.

    Booker's family has set up a memorial fund to pay for his funeral at the Community Trust Bank in Florence, KY.
