Jeff was a Super friendly and nice young man and will always be remembered as such. He was very accepting and welcoming to both my self and Kristen when we first got married 26 years ago, which I personally appreciated. May the Lord comfort and bless the entire family

Berna, I am so sorry for your loss. I want you to know that you raised a fine young man. He always texted me on holidays and sent me pictures of my lilacs in the backyard cause he knew how much I liked them. He was a big part of our family. He called my Geoff his brother. My first memory of him is Geoff and him playing out front with those square boxes on their heads. He was a pleasure to know. I will miss him.
