Judy and Family,

I'm very sorry for your loss. I met Jeff in 1974 at NW Hardware and I quickly learned that Jeff was the "go to" guy for all my questions. I was proud to be his friend throughout the years and will miss seeing him.

Jeff Miller was a wonderful and supportive member of the North Scott Rotary club for several years until medical reasons prevented him from attending. Items from Home Hardware were present every year, at our auction to raise money for the less fortunate children in the Quad City area. He often told of his work at Camp Courageous and encouraged members to come buy a fruit cake...he loved helping children. We hope for peace for Judy, his children and grandchildren, as he is no longer suffering. He will be missed!

Dearest Juday and family,
My heart, like yours, is broken. Jeff is and has always been so special in my heart! He and Greg came to live with us and brought a 5 gallon fish tank - Jeff was 16. When he moved, after he graduated, we had 15 fish tanks and we enjoyed! He is always in my heart! May God thru Jesus wrap his loving arms around all of you and grant you His peace! He was a WONDERFUL SON. Lots of love from his Foster Mom.

We are so sorry to hear of Jeff's passing. He and Greg came to live with us when I was 7 yrs old. My Mom has cried all day today after hearinghe had passed. Jeff loved music and played Jeremiah was a bullfrog all the time back then. I haven't seen him in years but I'll always remember him dearly as my 1st older brother. My prayers are with Judy & family at this difficult time. RIP sweet Jeff. The Lord has a new special Angel !!! God Bless!!
