He was born November 29, 1957 in Houston, Texas to George Lowell Jeffers and Clara Mae Hamman Jeffers. He graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in Tyler, Texas. While in Tyler, he became an avid bass fisherman, duck hunter and outdoorsman. On February 1, 1981, he married the love of his life, Alice Ann Wright and they moved to Victoria and he entered Victoria Junior College.

After a brief period, he was hired on at Exxon. They moved to Wharton, Texas where he expanded his water fowl skills to goose hunting and fishing for trout and redfish. While hunting with his grandfather, he harvested his first deer and that skill remained and became a lifelong obsession. Working in the oil field, they made many moves. In July of 1987, they were blessed with a son, Eric Clayton Jeffers. In February 2005, they lost Alice to Lupus. In 2015, ExxonMobil loaned him to a subsidiary, XTO, for a special project in East Texas. They relocated him to Nacogdoches, Texas where he remained until his early retirement on January 1, 2018 with 35 years of service. He relocated to Victoria where he has property in the Mission Valley area that he was improving. He was a loving son, father and brother and will be dearly missed by all who were blessed to know him.

He is survived by his son Eric; his parents; older brother, Gary Jeffers; nephews, Andrew, Garrett, Adam, Jase; niece, Allison; and two special friends, Lillie Hardt and Ainsley Bartek. He was preceded in death by his wife, Alice Jeffers; grandparents, George and Leila Jeffers and Guy and Geneva Hamman; uncle and aunt, Lloyd and Donna Hamman; and a younger brother, Roger “Allen” Jeffers.

My family met Scott in Hallettsville, we live next to Lillie. It saddened our hearts to learn of his passing, all I could think of was how excited he was to retire. May God bless your family ❤️

I worked with Darryl a good bit in the early to mid nineties when he was running the Cooks Point operation for Exxon. Always good memories when I think back to the many hours spent visiting with him at his office there. I had a bad accident near that office and Darryl was one of very few customers that came by the hospital to check on me. I'll always remember him.

Scott was more of a brother to me than a brother-in-law, and Alice was the sister I never had.

The world was a better place when they were in it, and I miss them both terribly.

Darryl and I spent many years working in and around each other with Exxon. Darryl was never shy nor spoke ill of others. We had my laughs together pull practical jokes, good ribbing and just being "boys". May you RIP and prepare for our next meeting......

I met Darryl after the death of his brother a few month backs when I was the funeral director that helped the family with the arrangements. He was the sweetest man!! I was shocked when I heard of his passing, I had no idea he was sick. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his parents who have had to bury two sons so close together. Rest In Peace Mr. Jeffers
