Jeff had a loving heart and a friendly demeanor. No matter where he went, Jeff would find someone to talk to and make new friends. Jeff loved sports! Regardless what was on television, whether it be football, hockey, baseball, NASCAR, you knew when the phone rang it was Jeff talking about something that happened. Jeff also loved tinkering with things that were broken and many times he would get it working again. Most of all he loved his family and friends! Jeff was amazing at staying connected and called often. He was so proud of everyone. He will be greatly missed!
Per his wishes, cremation rites have been accorded. A Celebration of Life gathering for Jeff will be held at a later date, not yet determined.
