What is a best friend?
We all have friends and then we have best friends. Jeff was a best friend to many of us. A best friend you just know will always have your back. Is someone you can trust and share your biggest concerns and ask advice. A best friend is someone you can be so casual around that you can't tell them apart from family. For sure I loved Jeff like a brother.

They earn your respect in small and big ways. Jeff was always introspective and had a very unique way of discussing life half joking and half serious. Its one of things I loved about Jeff because you often never knew.

In the end a best friend is not something that can be measured it's something you each just know and when they leave us they take a bit of your soul with them but they also leave a bit of their soul with you. That's what a best friend is.

Rest in Peace Jeff you'll never be forgotten.

I had the privilege of running into Jeff and Gwen @ DeWaynes in Smithfield after many years of not seeing one another. See in 1989, I bought my first house in Clayton, it was a great little neighborhood. Just so happens that all of the backyards joined one was Jeff and Gwen’s with little Jeffrey. Many great times over a five year period and after moving Jeff even came to Garner to help my Dad with plumbing in my house. Haven’t seen him in years but it was still like we were neighbors when seeing him in Smithfield this summer!
I’m sure during football season we will be able to still hear him yelling at the Steelers!!

I met Jeff at CarolinaEast Medical Center and went on to be one of his coworkers at Siemens. He was one of my mentors and has always provided me with tremendous support throughout my career . Even after we went our separate ways, Jeff would give me a call every now then to see how I was doing and catch up. He was a great friend and I will miss him dearly.

I had meet Jeff and Gwen long before I knew we would be related. Jeff jr. played football When he was very young with my son Zack. I remember seeing them At the games , cheering Jeff own with so much Enthusiasm. They were a such a cute couple , always so happy.
When Audrey started dating Jeff , I still had no clue who his parents were or Jeff jr. When I saw pictures of Jeff and Gwen , I was like you are that kid. I can say they have raised such a good son, and he’s a wonderful husband. Audrey is very lucky .
Jeff sr. Would be the quiet one at all our family get togethers. He was very much loved by so many. He will be missed.

As first cousins we grew up together sharing our yards in the Halla, on Southside, Pittsburgh, PA. But you were more like a brother to us four sisters. So many fond memories to share and are dear in our hearts forever. Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you Gwen for the loss of your wonderful husband and Jeffrey for the loss of your Dad your favorite fan and buddy. There are no words for this sudden loss and sometimes do not understand God's plan for each of us hoping and praying that now He is your strength and comfort to get you both thru each and every moment of this very difficult time. May our Jeff 🙏 REST IN PEACE. He is now another Angel watching over us and that bright shining star in that Southern sky. All our love and prayers are with you. Ar and Eddie ❤
