Jeff was one of the 1st customers in my shop when we opened in 2013. Over the years Jeff became much more than a customer to myself & my family. He was always, and I mean always smiling when he entered the shop. Jeff and I had a conversation once about football and I told him I really did not follow it much anymore but that John Elway was my favorite and that since his retirement, I simply wasn't much interested. The day after that conversation, Jeff came into the shop with a signed photograph of John Elway for me. I still have it, framed in my workshop at home.This was the type of person I knew him to be, kind, considerate and thoughtful.
Jeff will be missed terribly by all of us but, remembered fondly.
Rest peacefully my friend.

Jeffery (Jeff) was an irritating little cousin and I loved him for it.
I witnessed him grow from a goofy kid to a brave teen then into an amazing man; who became a strong husband, phenomenal father and loving grandfather.
Jeff had his own spirit and path in this world that he journeyed unapologetically with strong convictions.
Jeff was more than a cousin...he was more a brother. I am a better person for having you in my life.
