Jeff was a long time member of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 873.

Jeff could be seen riding his bicycle around Kokomo with his brother, Jason, finding geo-caches. Above all, Jeff was kind and giving, wanting to help everyone he could. He loved his family, spending as much time with them as he could, and was looking forward to being a very proud grandfather this August. Jeff will be deeply missed.
Jeff is survived by his son, Quinton (Alexus) Landrum; mother, Shirley Landrum; sisters, Paula (Robert) Burke and Kristi Landrum; brother, Jason (Amanda) Landrum; grandson, Leo, coming soon; and many nieces and nephews.

I have known Jeff for many many years when my sister Michelle and Jeff got together. He was a happy, fun-loving and brilliant guy. He loved his family and friends, he especially adored his son Quinton. It is hard to pick just one memory of Jeff but I'll share one of my favorites... the tunnel under his house. Thoughts and prayer to his family and friends, Jeff will be missed

Jeff was part of our family for several years when he married my niece Michelle. We always had fun times together. If Jeff was anywhere near you would always have someone to listen. Jeff was a wonderful person who had a fabulous smile. A couple of memories of him was the time I was at his house when he and Michelle was married and I was trying to figure out how to turn his TV on. Jeff comes in the room and he starts to educate me about his remote control. Lol. He of course knew exactly how to turn it on and everything else as well. He also was a man of kindness. I called him up one time when my husband and I couldn’t figure out some electrical problem we were having. Jeff came right over and fixed it for us. Would not take a dime from us for doing it. Wonderful memories and I know he will be very missed. Thought and prayers go out to all his family and friends.

I met Jeff at the young age of 14 and from there we became high school sweethearts and eventually we married and had our son Quinton. Jeff definitely was ahead of the game with his electronic gadgets, that’s for sure! He had remote controls to unlock the doors, turn on the lights and the tv and had security cameras around the house. He was always inventing some kind of gadget. If he couldn’t figure something out or didn’t understand how something worked he wouldn’t give up until he did figure it out.
Jeff was always the life of the party and he loved having friends over. He had a smile and a laugh that was contagious.
Lots of wonderful memories and too many to mention. He will always have a special place in my heart. Rest In Peace, Jeff.

To say that Jeff was a tinkerer is an understatement. I'll never forget the time i came over to his house, he was remodeling it by building a loft in the living room. Jeff had secured a rope to the highest beam and it was attached to Quintons baby swing. Another rope was attached to the swing and Jeffs rocking recliner. He was rocking himself to sleep and Quinton at the same time. He done some crazy fun stuff like that all the time. Many a laughs were had with him. He will be missed! My love and prayers to Quinton, Michelle and all his family and friends that dearly loved him and he them.

My condolences to you all. I pray God will draw you closer to him and each other during this time. I went to high school and specifically vocational electronics with Jeff. We use to run around together for a period of time. I recall riding around in that Chevette of his. He definitely was a prankster. I remember in homeroom, him running wires down his sleeves and holding two quarters in each hand. He would touch the quarters to the chairs and shock you. He mostly did that to the girls. He had a good sense of humor and was very intelligent.
Bless his memory and his family and friends.
