It's hard to believe that when I climb those back stairs at Sammy's tonight I won't see the luminescent yellow shirt and wonderful tape measure suspenders sitting on a stool. Always ready with a story and a smile you will be missed Jeff. Rest in peace; rest in peace. Mike Worman

Dear Rick and Family - we were so saddened to hear of the loss of your brother/uncle Jeff. Always had a smile on his face when we would see him at Sammy's. Praying for you all during this difficult time!

I had the honor of meeting Jeff last year through my parents. He took me out on the trails as I don't own a UTV. During these rides, we had many conversation and laughed quite a bit. He offered up the use of one of his machines if ever I wanted to go out even though we were new friends. I'm going to miss our conversations and those laughs. Rest in peace, Jeff.
