Dear Corinne, Jason, Kate and family,
I was saddened to learn of Jeff’s passing. Jeff was thoughtful and generous, and his devotion to family and the church were admirable. Jeff was more than a valuable customer and I always looked forward to our visits through the 45+ years. He would always give me the latest update on his kids, grandkids and his recent travels. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this, but he was proud of his family and loved you all dearly. I will miss him deeply and alway appreciated the bottle of Hahn wine he gave me every Christmas!

Dick and I were very sorry to hear about Jeff’s passing. We have several wonderful memories of both Jeff and Corinne enjoying lunch or playing golf together. We always enjoyed our time together whenever we could.
On a different note, I (Dee) enjoyed working with Jeff for 10 years. As a boss, he was always open to ideas, quick to support educational projects (within the budget😊) and was a good listener. He had an easy smile, gentle manner of supervising all the while encouraging higher standards for both students and staff.
Our hearts and Prayers go out to all of the family during this very difficult time.
