Orleans, MA – Jeffrey Thomas LaVoie passed away on November 7, 2021. He was 63. Jeffrey was born on November 1, 1958 in Bristol, CT. Jeffrey was predeceased by his parents, George “Sonny” LaVoie and Lucille (Vautour) LaVoie.

After graduation from Bristol Eastern High School, Jeffrey moved to the outer Cape. He held several local jobs in the green industry, advancing to be a certified landscaper-horticulturalist. Jeffrey started his own business “Second Nature Landscaping” in 1986. He was regarded and respected as having a natural talent by both his peers and his clients.

Jeffrey was an accomplished outdoorsman, fisherman, skier and sailor. In more recent years he could be found in Northwest CT or on Nantucket Sound. He was a man of the flora and fauna and delighted in nature. With a healthy sense of humor and handsome smile, Jeffrey would light up any room he entered. He was fun, adventurous, honorable, respectful, creative, loving and caring. His good nature was easy to be around and his lively stories made all who met him feel welcomed.

Jeffrey is survived by his loving wife, Karen, who shall dearly miss the love of her life. A celebration of Jeffrey’s life shall be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jeffrey’s name to Wild Care, Inc. at 10 Smith Lane, Eastham, MA 02642, where Jeffrey and Karen contributed regularly.

This will not be a Happy Thanksgiving for you Karen or Jeff's family and circle of friends . I'm glad we had a chance meeting in Chatham yesterday so I could express my condolences personally to you. I enjoyed seeing you and Jeff at the boatyard on those beautiful summer days and watching you both motor down the Oyster River for a day on the water together. May those memories help ease the pain of your loss and Thanksgiving as well as every day will become happy once again, Jeff would want it that way. My thumb is a little greener because of Jeff's landscape tips! Sincerest sympathies, Rick Hedlund (Eastham, MA)

I am so very sorry that Jeff is gone. He was always so lovely to me and I will never forget the laughter and joy he took in watching me walk my new puppy Gracie down the road, her tugging me and jumping and having no manners at all. Jeff would be beside himself laughing, and had a blast teasing me about my lack of animal control. You were a good man, Jeff, and will be greatly missed by so many.

Jeff was a great friend during high school. We had so much fun together. Fishing, skiing and getting into trouble. He was always looking to have some fun. Our senior class was so large they took three pictures for our class photo. Jeff managed to sneak into all three. So the class photo of1977 hanging on the wall at Bristol Eastern has 3 Jeffery Lavoies.
I will miss you Jeff.
