I met Jeff through his ex-wife Brenda. I always liked Jeff. He was always so funny and he always put his family first. He was a great man. My heart goes out to the girls and his family.

I miss you old man. The amount of time u annoyed me in a single day was 1,263 times. The amount of times we bugged each other was 987 times in a day . You may be the only person I will go to a store for at 3:30am because u have a craving for fruit and then come back to go to the store again because u need more stuff. I don’t no how many times me and Kayla would laugh at the random things you would say from your room. But boy I miss it. I still laugh at the shirt u bought Kayla saying “I love my redneck girlfriend “ by the way Jeff I’m know where near redneck just cause I lived in the country for a while. Your were a second dad to me and I will always cherish that . Don’t worry about Sadie she is still a spoiled queen in the house.

Jeff started out as my late husband's friend. When my husband passed away in 2014 Jeff became mine.

He was very kind and encouraging me in my steps through the greifing process.

He was always checking on me to make sure I was handling life okay.

He had a very kind and gentle soul.

Jeff thank you for making time for a stranger in her time of need. I will never forget you and will always be thankful.

I hope you and Matthew are laughing your butts off together. Rest in peace my friend.

Many weekends I spent with Jeff & his girls after he opened his home to my son & I . Two things are certain about Jeff; he loved his girls with all of his heart & he was very proud of them . He helped me through some of the toughest times and never missed a chance to help me as a mother. He loved my son dearly and I appreciated that more than I was ever able to express. My deepest sympathies to the family. " Along with the great sadness that comes from missing you is a multitude of greatfulness for having loved you at all. Our connection changed my life , I am honored to be able to miss you." Rest In Peace Jeff ❤

I remember when Kayla and I were little, we were in the truck that he had at the time. We went to 7-11 and Kayla and I were arguing about which type of car was faster: An automatic, or a stick shift. When dad got back in the truck we asked him, "Dad which is faster, an automatic or a stick?" He said, "um, an automatic a stick doesn't even move."
Lol...I have so many memories with him I can't even tell them all. But this is one memory, and I will always remember it like it was yesterday. I love you Dad so much. Say hi to Grandpa and Uncle Matt for us. And I know you will always be watching over Kayla, Grandma, and I.

The time in 1986 that Jeff had taught me to drive a stick it was in the winter time he went up on the hill and he put it in park and turned it off and had me get in the driver's seat ,then made me start it up and go back up that hill, I kept killing it and was rolling downhill and not at a straight angle either , Jeff kept laughing his laugh that almost literally made him pee his pants... I finally made it up the hill and when I stopped so he can change back into the driver seat I locked the doors and would not let him in for a minute and started laughing hysterically for the fact it was only about 20 degrees ....(yes I eventually let him in and no he was not frozen, cold ...yes)R.I.P. Jeff I have and will always have love for you! Who gave me the most 2 beautiful things in life...
