I am so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing and shocked. I’ve known Jeff since he was a little boy. His mother, Gerri, happened to be one of my best friends and we lived behind one another as the kids grew up. Jeff was in the cub scouts and I was a den mother so he was in my group. Such a cute little red headed guy he was. I was so close to the entire family and this breaks my heart. He was truly a sweet child and I saw him every day when we all lived so close. To think that he is gone is hard to believe. My sympathies to Farrell, Kathy and Debbie. Also, I didn’t know his daughter or other children but my sympathies to them too. I’m so sorry for the loss you all feel as I know you lost a very special person. Hang on to your memories, they will help get you through this terrible event. Make he Rest In Peace and May you all find peace in time. I feel your sadness.

I wish I could be eloquent, but I'm probably not going to be successful. Jeff is my brother and I loved him dearly. I always wanted only the best for him and was very proud of his ability to be a great Dad to his kids and stepsons. I know he loved them all. Jeff was always happy with a fishing line wet in the water and always seemed to be planning or returning from a fishing trip. This is an activity he shared with his Dad. They had running jokes on their trips. Jeff had a great sense of humor and a unique way of viewing life events around him. He loved to cook and specialized in some dishes we grew up eating including our Mom's enchiladas. One of his favorite desserts was berry or cherry delight. And when he visited Dad, he always made stuffed poppers for a snack. Jeff was a good bowler and always tried for a perfect 300. He was always ready to help a friend and didnt wait to be asked if he saw a need. Mom and Dad raised all of us kids to be honest hard workers and Jeff was proud of where he worked and considered his work colleagues to be like family. He was always kind to animals and liked to tease Dad about Shelly, dads fat cat. I cant believe Jeff is gone and am so sad that he isnt here with those that love him. I pray he is with Mom and finding all the great fishing spots in heaven. I hope he knows I loved him and that he is missed by so many people that also loved him.
