I just recently heard of Jeff’s passing and was so saddened. I was his teacher in Senior government class, and his smile could light up your day. I’m sure he will be missed by all.
(Jerry was also in my class in 1967-68 — both of them nice young men.) Please accept my heartfelt sympathy.
I remember playing alongside Jeff in freshman football. We had alot of fun that year. It was always great running into him after high school. He always had this great big smile and a welcoming word every time. Really sorry to hear of his passing. God Bless!
