Jeffrey, I have known you for all your life and you have always been one of my absolute favorite people. A shining light in this crazy world. You loved your music, and remember you following the Grateful Dead and Phish. You have always been so giving of yourself to others. You have been a wonderful son, husband, father, brother, nephew and cousin to your family and friend to me. My heart is full of sorrow as we say good bye. Rest in Peace Jeff. I love you with all my heart.

Jeff crossed both mine & my husband's paths through our jobs at Boyles & Good's. He was energetic and hard working but always took time to ask about your family. I liked that most about him, that he took the time to care. He will be truly missed.
My deepest sympathy to his wife & daughters at this time of heartbreak. Our prayers are with you.

To all of the family/friends of Jeff; my most heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm so very sorry for his 'way too early passing'.
I never met Jeff; but knew him through his Aunt Barb(Phelps) who is a dear friend of mine.
I knew he was so kind and compassionate. He donated to a GoFundMe for me when I was going through a tough cancer battle.
May the fond and fun memories that you all had with him help to ease the pain in your hearts.
His love of life and family/friends will shine on forever and his spirit will be with you all for all of time.
May you feel God's loving arms surround you and give you strength and courage.
Jeff's legacy will live on forever through you all.
May God bless all of you.

Jeff I haven't talked to you in probably close to 30 years but it doesn't matter because you were such a good guy in high school. I'm glad I got to know you and our paths crossed. I remembered you were a great boyfriend to Danielle ❤️ I'm sorry you had to leave our world way too soon and I feel really badly for your daughters and your wife to not have your presence in their lives anymore. You will live on through your children and your grandchildren and your sister and your nieces and nephews and their children forever ❤️ until we meet again

Sunshine was my nickname since I called him Doomaflachee. Loved working with Jeff. Always knew how to get the work done and still have fun and make you smile. You will be so missed here at Goods Home Furnishings. And I am thinking of you and your kids and how hard it must be to go thru these next few days and weeks and months. But I am praying for your strength.

Jeff was a fun loving spirit. We met eachother in NYC @ the Beacon. Him & his beautiful wife were so gracious inviting us to hang out with them & made our stay unforgettable. They didn’t end the friendship there but kept in touch with kindness & love. I have another loved one in the hospital or I would be present to send him off. I will never forget Jeff & hold his memory in the kindest regard. My love & strength go out to him & his family.
