Nataliya, I was lucky enough to work with Jeff at TORXX and got a chance to see what a great man he was. I will miss him and wanted to extend my sympathies to you and the family.

Jeff and I met at an industry event where we immediately shared laughs and some great conversation. Over the past four years it has been an honour to be able to reconnect with him at each event we share and pick back up right where we left off. He was a great man with a bold and endearing personality and he will be greatly missed by all who were able to meet him. I am so thankful we met and that I was able to share what little time I had getting to know him. Sending prayers and love to Nataliya and the rest of his family and friends.

To Jeff's family,

I am also one of the Woodstock cousins, daughter of Shirley (Smith) Bishop. On behalf of my sister, Leslie (Whitehorne) Boomer and myself, I would like to extend our most sincere sympathies for your loss. We haven't seen Jeff for too long but were really hoping to reconnect over the coming year after being with most of the other cousins earlier this year. We too have great memories of visits and dinners at Jeff's parents' place in Grimsby and I can assure you that even then, Jeff was cultivating a keen sense of mischief. So sorry to miss getting reacquainted with you Jeff.

My deepest condolences to you all. Although it’s been many years since I spent any time with Jeff I have fond memories from (Hitchin) family get togethers over the Christmas season, or special occasions like weddings or milestone birthdays. Lots of fun times and good conversations. Thinking of you all during these sad times. 💕💕

I am one of the Woodstock cousins , daughter of Mona and Frank Howe. We (my brother John and me) have such wonderful memories of visiting the Bowers in Grimsby. Swims in the pool, drinks on the patio, bbq’s and summer fun with Jeff and Bill ... all great memories. My condolences to Jeff’s family. He has left too soon. May the sharing of these small remembrances and the gratitude they contain for Jeff’s journey among us, bring a sense of peace.

My heartfelt sympathy to Nataliya, Rebecca, Jordan and the rest of the Bowers family.
I played hockey with Jeff on the “Pickups” at Art Thompson arena for many years. (along with John Mason, John DeBenedictis, Craig Vanderlaan, Alan Moffatt, and Mike Brady).
I have so many wonderful memories of Jeff over the years...at the Hard Ice Cafe discussing life over wings and pops, going to the links to play golf, going out to dinner with “the boys” and the famous road trip to Montreal to play in an Oldtimers tournament!
I am thankful that the Pickups were able to have dinner with Jeff in February, before self isolation commenced. Jeff was happy with his life, discussing his possible vacation destinations and spending more quality time with his family. (especially the grandchildren)
Thanks for the memories! Rest In Peace, my friend.
Kampai ! Gary Nasu 🏒⛩

Dear Jeff,

I still cannot believe that you have left us so suddenly.
You were a great friend who loved to share stories about your family, trips and life.
Your laughter and sense of humour always made life more interesting.
We’ve shared happy moments and sad moments in our lives. You always seemed to find the good side of life and accepted the sad moments as a fact of life. You dealt with it and then carried on.
Jeff, you always knew how to enjoy life. You’ve travelled, gone to the theatre, and loved to be wined and dined. You were the one who made everyone laugh at a party.
I am glad that you came into my life and have been an integral part of it. We were planning to take trips together but your life was cut too short.
I will never forget you buddy! You will always be in my thoughts!

Dear Family,
Jeff will be sorely missed by myself and many others on the Trade Show Circuit. It will not be the same without the wonderful laugh and humor that he bestowed on all of us. Jeff and I were always able to pick back where we left off at the shows. Laughing and sharing about life, family and work. It is hard to find friends of this caliber that you could call Brother in this life. Gods Speed to you Jeff and may the peace and love of God envelope your family in this difficult time. I love you as a Brother and Friend. I will miss the humor and laughter!!!

I am so sorry to hear of Jeff's passing. Hopefully your extended family will find comfort in having each others support.

I haven't seen Jeff or Bill for many years but got to know them while we were all in school.
