    A Wonderful man. Played Little League on Owen Davis together for only one year but grew up in same neighborhood. He was 12 I was 9. He was always kind and supportive to a younger aggressive kid. Recently posted a very kind message on one of my posts. Shocking to loose another Saco and Thornton comrade. RIP Jeff

    Jeff (and Lori, and Jaime) was like a second family to me when I needed one most. Always a laugh, a great father, husband, friend to all. My heart goes out to the Yerxa family and my deepest condolences.
