He loved gardening and being outside. We had the best garden and lawn in the whole neighborhood. He was kind and he shared what he had. He was the best husband a wife could want.

Please accept my sincere condolences for you and the family of Jeff . I worked for years with him at Epic-Dana .Jeff was a remarkable man and everyone at Epic-Dana is better for having known him. For those of us that had the privilege of calling him "friend" outside of work, we were humbled by his kindness and compassion to everyone around him.

He will be greatly missed and sadden by his death. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and his family and friends during this difficult time.

With sincere sympathy,Asher Family..
