A true "neat freak", he was always making sure that his hygiene was next to Godliness. He was currently working for Durham's Hardwood and was a member of Mile Creek Baptist Church.

I spent a few years getting to know Jeff. He was a good person and so kind. His love for his family was always first and he was extremely proud of his son as he would tell me many times as we would have our talks. Jeff I'm sure you will finally have no need for gloves and hand sanitizer up in Heaven as you did here on earth. I would constantly kid him about this . Rest in peace Sir. To his family please accept my condolences on his passing and am so sorry his time was cut short with you all.

Lynn Lankford and Chuck Adcox, I haven't heard of you guys since high school days until I heard about your precious son. You both have my deepest sympathy. I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around you and give you comfort during this sad time. I know you have an extended family and I send my condolences to them also. Sounds like your son was surrounded by people who loved him. I will be praying for you all during this difficult time.

Jeff was always one of my favorite people. All of the family was always nice to me. Just want to let you know the years I was around him he always talked of his love for God and all of his family. I know the last few months have been great for all of you. I am so glad that he and Clay dropped by to see me a few months ago. I know he will be missed. So sorry he had such a short time at home. Praying for your comfort in the days ahead.
