I knew Jeff back as early as 1970 when we both went (occasionally) to high school. He worked for El Saguaro Mexican restaurant at the time a part time dishwasher after school. He found another job, but wouldn't leave them until he found someone to fill the position. I agreed to take it, he stayed on to train me. Not many 17 year olds have that kind of character.
He also took me sailing, he was very capable as a sailor, I was surprised at his talents at such a young age.
We lost touch until 2020 when we found each other on Facebook.
I am saddened to here of his departure, I know he's being nice somewhere else.

Jeff and me go back to the mid 70's when he worked with Steve Burnside at a Christian coffee house on Fairfield. While there a show called Weekend,which was replaced by Saturday Night Live did a show about the coffee house. Jeff, Burnside and myself were taped for the show. Jeff and Burnside where on the show but my part was cut. Jeff was also a great singer and guitar player. When I first lived on Jefferson Blvd we would show movies on the back of my house. Jeff's favorites were The Trouble with Tribels, The Fatal Glass of Beer and Java Junkie. Jeff was the one who always ran the projector.

I met Jeff at the old Azar,it's now liberty diner . That was where my daughter work when I go to pick her up I would go. Little early. So I could get some coffee while waiting for her to get off. I was just sitting there and this man says to me you have pretty legs. I thought what a wield man. My daughter introduce me to him. H she was friends with him . Jeff and my family have been friends then on. When I worked at Pizza Hut every year on my Birthday he would send me flowers at work and say they were from the park board . Of course I knew they we're from him. My children would play on his band instruments that he had set up in his dining room the one would play the drums the other two would play the guitars of course sing and he was really great at letting them do that. It's so sad at loosing him.love you .will see you again in the here after. Nan Baker

I met Jeff in the early 80s while working at Fort Wayne parks department. I also knew him as a customer at Village Inn Pancake House were I also worked. He was always bringing in clever wood creations for the wait staff. At the Park Dept, he made outstanding props for the Conservatory shows, including my favourite, the Yellow Submarine.
He loved the artist Joe Bonamasa, and shared the music to those that were interested.
He was passionate about his interests, and was one hell of a Guy! He will be missed.
