I am truly saddened by this news. Jeff always had a big smile and a terrific sense of humor. I will always remember Jeff's appreciation for the simple things in life; Whether it was busting out laughing while watching his favorite show, The Three Stooges, or enjoying a quiet evening listening to songs by The Beach Boys, Jeff had an uncanny ability to find happiness in his daily activities. My heart goes out to his friends and family during this time.

I am so sad to hear about Jeff. I entertained as a musician at Capeabilities for nearly 20 years. Jeff was my friend. We joked with each other, laughed, and I loved to play his favorites songs. I will miss this man.

Jeff was a faithful parishioner at The Church of the Holy Spirit in Orleans, MA, when I was the Pastor. He greeted all of us with a wry smile and eventually a joke. Always happy and grinning when he saw me coming to greet him. His special ministry at the Parish was to announce each Service by ringing the Church Bell. His steady hand in ringing and tolling the bell rope mirrored his steady, strong Faith and love for all of us. Now in God’s Presence, May all his infirmities be transformed into a life of Peace and tranquillity. May he Rest In Peace and rise in Glory.
