Tammy, Haley and Jackson; you have my thoughts and prayers with you since I first got the news. From the time Jeff was born, he was always like a little man. He and Ronnie spent a lot of time together growing up. He has been an inspiration to many people along the way, and I know our Lord has a great job and plan for Jeff now.
We will miss him tremendously. I pray our Lord's blessings upon you. There is a hole in our Smith family now, however, there will be joy because of our hope in Jesus Christ .

Tammy, Jackson and Haley, my heart bleeds for you! There are many angels hugging him right now and I’m sure my Gary is right there with “I love you man” to greet him. He may have to practice some “Munson” calls! They’ll be watching the Dawgs from Heaven above.
Love and prayers,

I will always remember the laughs Jeff would bring to all those around him. I would be serenaded to the song “Angie” by The Rolling Stones every time I entered a room he was in. He will be missed deeply!

Loving and praying for this amazing family. Jeff was an amazing dad in that I saw Jackson as a gentleman, great athlete, amazing man, and with person with a. heart of gold. Haley is one of my favorite souls in this world. My heart hurts that Tammy is without Jeff who always treated her with sincere love whenever I saw them together. What an amazing man, husband, and father that will be dearly missed. Much respect.
