April 15, 1948 – November 26, 2018
Jeff Bolt passed very unexpectedly on Nov. 26, 2018 at the age of 70 with family and friends at his side.
Jeff is survived by Kathy (Kit) Bolt, Mike Bolt (Ashley), Justin Bolt (Shannon), Craig Noyes (Lacey), Mike Bailey (Angie), Deanne Compos, the late Staff Sgt. Brandon Bailey, sisters Jennifer Berry, Melissa Shea (John), Sandy Stone (Dennis), grandchildren Darby, Quito, Solora (Peanut), Grace, Cora, Isabelle, Shannon, Hailey, Ashlyn, Khloe, Alexus, and #12 on her way, and special buds Randy & Ron.
For those of us who were fortunate enough to have Jeff in our lives, he was our father/stepfather, husband, papa, brother, uncle, friend, hunting partner, fishing buddy, comedian, & Rock. He was a very strong man who softened with age and had a special love for his grandchildren. Those who know him best will remember him as their poet and he didn’t even know it… He is truly loved and will be forever missed.
Celebration of life will be in April.

Jeff and I fought forest fires together the summer and fall after graduating from high school, Jeff from West Valley and me from Ike. It was hard, dangerous work at the Ahtanum Ranger Station. We lost touch after the job ended but I often thought of him . RIP Jeff.
