I had the privilege of working with and friendship with Jeff for 39 years. He was always there to help anyone in need. From taking care of everyone’s cars to supporting all the truck rodeos Jeff always was there to help.
We had a lot of good times together and went through a lot of hard situations together. He was always trying to find the best or better way to help. We will truly miss our dear and loyal friend.
With deepest sympathy,

I only knew Jeff for a couple years and particularly over the past year while serving with him on the Lake Caroline Board. Jeff was passionate about this community and was not afraid to speak up when he had questions or recommendations on how to improve quality of life for all of our neighbors. Over the past few months Jeff and I would talk quite a bit about dredging, recreation, elections, and how we can best help our neighbors. My wife and I work with Wright’s Chapel Lumberjacks where we provide free firewood to families in need throughout the county. Jeff knew about this and three months ago he gave me his chainsaw that he could no longer use. He knew that this saw would be put to good use and this was his way to continue helping his county neighbors. Just a small example but this is how I will always remember Jeff. As a man with a big heart and seemed to always find ways to help those around him and show that he truly cared. Rest peacefully Jeff and our prayers go with you and all of your loved ones!

Dear Rhonda and family,
I am so sorry to learn of Jeff's passing. I first met Jeff when I started working at Wilson Trucking in 1982, Throughout the next 34 years he was ready to help anytime I had a question or problem, and we continued to stay in contact in recent years. Having Jeff as a co-worker and friend was one of the things that made my career at Wilson more enjoyable.

Dear Rhonda,
Jeff and I became fast Friends as soon as we meet through my phone call for employment.
He asked me what was the best thing I could do for Him if He hired me and
I replied "Preventive Maitenance"!
From that point forward I did all I could to keep his Fleet Working and I came to realize He was doing all He could to compensate me for my efforts to keep Wilson Trucking # 1!
Jeffs' personality was what endeared him to all!
It also let everyone know He was His own Man and that He was not bashful about helping others!
He helped me and I am forever grateful!
I know Jeff was aware of the current National Health Crisis and that He would want no one to jeopardize their well being or their Loved ones well being.
His compassion for others was quite evident.
I will be contacting You and I will be visiting Jeff at His resting place.
Sincerely,
Gary Teates

Jeff and me were very good friends and worked together for Wilson for a long time.Jeff being in Newington and Fredreckburg and myself in Fishersville. We talked all the time and tried to help each other daily. Jeff for years sent my wife and me the White House Christmas Ornament and we hung on the tree every year. He will be really missed for we talked a lot after our years at Wilson.I will always remember him and how much we did together.
