We were so saddened to hear of Jeff's passing. He was such an important part of our lives and our business for many years. Even after his retirement, his visits to the dealership meant so much to all of us. He will be sorely missed by all of his friends/coworkers at Saccucci Honda.

Our deepest condolences,
