I met Jeff in the summer of 1958. I was sunbathing on the doc and my family’s house on Jackson Lake. A speedboat went by with a group of noisy boys. A few days later, the boat returned. With only one boy, and it was Jeff. Our summer high school romance began. When I think back on it, I realize that my overprotective parents saw something in Jeff. When they allowed me to go out in the boat for night cruising on the lake with Jeff.
We were high school sweethearts confirmed by the many writings in my 1958 and 1959 yearbooks.
While Jeff and I were the exact same age, Jeff and I attended different highschools. I was at Brown High in Atlanta, where Jeff was my escort to all my dances and I went to his school’s prom. I can still feel the stares from all the girls when I came in on Jeff’s arm. In the day as Judy Ann Greene, all the kids wrote in my yearbooks about my dancing and Jeff.

I remember going with Jeff’s mother and brother Roger to a football game where Jeff did the kickoff for his team

Jeff and I drifted apart when I went off to college and he joined the Air Force.
While going through storage boxes at my house, I found my yearbooks and my diary. After reading all my entries about Jeff, I wondered whatever became of him. I went on my computer and found him. I Immediately phoned him and I can’t say which of us were more shocked to be speaking to one another after all the years. We had several years of telephone conversations and he spent a Thanksgiving and Christmas with me, my daughter, and granddaughter.
Jeff will always be with me in my heart

Jeff has been our next door neighbor and friend for twenty years. I will miss our chats and his fishing advice. He took me to different parts of the lake and told me what types of bates to use. He had me take pictures of some of his best catch to share with others. The neighborhood will not be the same without him. It is so sad to look at his house every day and know that he is no longer there.

Jeff was one of my older brother, Jack’s, best friends. He never treated me like the little kid sister. He was my friend, too. I remember many fun times on Elder Street. Praying for Jeff’s family during these tough days.

My condolences to Roger, Allen, and your families. It saddens me to not be with you at this time of grief and celebration of Jeff's life. We seldom crossed paths in adult life. When we did, it was always good to hear his voice and his laugh. Through the 50s, we were next door neighbors. Jeff was 6 years older than me. At 4 years old, in my eyes, Jeff was the wise old sage of the neighborhood. He was a major influence in my adolescent life and was a hero and unwilling mentor as I grew from preschool through elementary school age. I learned many life forming lessons from Jeff. He taught me to be tough which helped me survive recesses at Eastern Elementary and many other life crises. I have always had fond memories of Jeff and all I learned from him.

Will never forget all our camping trips, traveling out of town with you for work, and the "Fishing"!!🤣 Thank you Dad for all the memories I have and cherish growing up! Especially remember when I had the mumps and had to stay out of school, was having problems with my multiplication tables and you came to my room every single dang night and tested me to make sure I was studying and learning them! 🤣 You were a great dad and I will never forget that. Will see you soon, love you! ❤️

Put simply Jeff was my oldest and best friend. Our friendship literally began when we were babies. Our fathers played amateur baseball and our respective mothers would bring us to the games. We entered first grade together at Eastern Elementary in Red Oak. Our friendship continued through our years at Campbell High School playing football and spending a lot of time skiing and fishing at Jackson Lake. We renewed our friendship after our military service ended and have remained close friends all through the years. Jeff was the most passionate non alumni supporter of Georgia Tech football I have ever known. Losing to the Dawgs was very personal to him. I am very grateful for our lifetime friendship and I will miss him terribly.
