He was planning to work until the age of 65 but, was unfortunately struck with cancer which, in turn forced him into retirement.
Jeff was an avid outdoorsman. Loving the mountains in every aspect that they offer. Dirt bikes were one of his favorites. Camping, fishing, hiking, and things outdoors made him much happier than staying at home. His grandkids meant the world to him. He showed them all the good things in the outdoors. He took them camping, fishing, hiking, even carrying the youngest up and back down from Blodgett overlook. The Best Grandpa/ Great Grandpa Ever.
