To the Lunceford Family,
We are so saddened to hear of Jeffs passing. We offer our deepest condolences.
As our neighbor and Steven and Jon’s close friend growing up, it was a very familar sight to see Jeff with Brett Mac, Steven and Jon playing together or building ramps and skate boarding in front of our house. We have fond memory’s of Jeffrey and the kids sharing time and life’s adventures and will always hold those precious moments dear to our heart.

I can remember it like it was yesterday... Tj Dowling and myself put in more prep time than we probably should have for our lil sinc performance for the 5th grade talent show. Right as we thought we tied up first place Jeff comes on and plays Whipeout on drums from start to finish. It was obvious he was the winner and it was extremely apparent Jeff had a gift for music. His love and natural tact for music grew greater as we progressed through Pine Mountain middle school. As we all know the rest is history. Jeff ol buddy, as hard as we battled for class clown you always had a foundation built on love and care. I hadn’t talked nor seen you in awhile but know I miss you and am happy you are with the Lord. I will see you soon old friend. Zack

From the moment you were born, you have been a treasure to this family, our family. Today, we mourn your loss and the grief is piercing. We love you. I love you. I will always remember chaparonning your elementary school trip to the zoo and sitting in my car at grandmom's and rapping Moment for Life together, neither of us missing a word or a beat. We beamed light. It was so awseome! Thank you for coming here awhile to be my little cousin.

I will never forget the first time I met you. I thought your eyes were one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen until you smiled, then I was in awe. Then we got to know you thru the boys and I learned that you were truly a Gorgeous person thru and thru. I know you have the most gorgeous wings ever and that you will forever be watching over your family. Praying for the family, especially for Jessie and the boys. 🦋

Jeff was the first musical dynamo in a lot of our lives. He showed us from an early age that anything was possible if you committed and dedicated yourself to a passion. Thank you for your bright light.
