He really enjoyed spending time with his family and really loved Christmas time the most. His hobbies include his love for music, classic car shows and his 69’ Ford Mustang Mach 1, boating, grilling and watching “da bears!.”
Jeff was preceded in death by his mother, Helen and his father, Steven, and his beloved Yorkie-Poo, Sandi.

Always a fun time boating with Jeff and Cindy. Our kids grew up boating together on the butler chain of lakes. Forever member of the Sportsmans we were able to bring our families together enjoying bbq’ing, boating or just hanging out at the island. Jeff was always fun to be around and loved poking to get you going...lol.
If you know and love Jeff you know exactly what I mean. From making us laugh to making sure everyone was having a good time. Even after a long day of boating he would open his home to us all. Pool table, music, nice bar and arcade games. Will never forget all the beautiful Easters and the special family time together. Jeff you will forever be missed and loved. Rest In Peace and please know we will always be here for your lit Cin until we meet again oxoxo.
Thank you for holding me like you love me.
Jeff always complimented me because I played in a band and he called me Eric. (Eric Clapton). He was a go getter always into something to make money we brainstormed a lot of ideas?
He got me into a lot of rock concerts (free) back then as a security guard over at Eddie Graham Sports Stadium. My ears would be ringing for hours after the concerts over being near the speaker cabinets but got to meet a lot of neat musicians and learned a lot it was a trip.
I remember one time Jeff came over to my parents place as I was working on some electronic equipment and asked me. "what that was?" as he went over and grab my hot soldering iron sitting on the floor I was using. Next thing I knew I heard this "YeoooOOOOOWwww" along with a few choice words as he grabbed the wrong end of my hot soldering iron and you heard this "ssssssss" it burned the heck out of his hand. He looked over at me for comfort to say something and I said, "bet you won't do that again" we both laughed and went to put something on it then we headed out. So many interesting times & stories and great memories of people in our lives shame we lose a few great one's along our journey in life. Condolences to Ciny & Family & Friends RIP my friend
