Jeff was always full of fun and mischief.... He always had a smile. I'm glad that I got to know him and spend the time we did together. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time of loss and I pray God comforts you all. I bet the fishing is great in heaven!

Uncle Bob, Aunt Bernie and family. I am so very sorry to hear of my cousin Jeff's passing. I had not seen Jeff for many years but one memory will always stick in my head. We were all at Mom Mom's in Aston, PA and standing next to Mom Mom's neighbor the hairdresser and the behind the Pharmacy. I remember Jeff saying "Jive Turkey"!!! That is the first I had ever heard that being said. We all laughed for 10 minutes. Not too sure who was all there but I remember Jeff, Billy, Kevin, Jill and myself. What a fond memory of a great time.
