    I was blessed to have been friends with Jeff for 36 years. Jeff was a great example of a loving & good hearted person who was always a pleasure to be around. I know he left this impact on many others and will always be remembered this way in the hearts, minds, and memory of those that knew him. Jeff also left an incredible example on how to be a great guy, husband, brother, uncle and an amazing best friend. I love you, Jeff.

    I was so sorry to hear about this. I’m praying for his wife and family. Things I remember about Jeff was that red firebird he drove and all the friends he had. So many ppl liked him. His smile was contagious and such a sweet guy. He will be missed. Thinking of you Terri.
