  1. I took care of Jeff at milestone, I always enjoyed hearing his stories of him in the military and how many different plans he’s been on. He always enjoyed talking and sharing stories. He will be missed 💙

    I knew him as Jeffery in grade school, he will be missed by all. If my memory serves me right i do believe he went to Sacred Heart School.
    God Bless him.
