Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting and spending any time with Jeff is better for knowing him. He lived every moment of his life as large as his personality. He knew no stranger, he would walk Missi and stop to get to know the neighbors. He loved his video games and slot machines. No matter what was happening to his body, he worked hard to continue to do what he could. His beautiful blue eyes and his wonderful laugh will be missed! (“I love you forever!”)
A memorial will be held in his honor at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local animal shelter in Jeff’s name.
