Dear Pam&Family I'm so deeply sadden by Jeff's Passing!!.He was such a Bright light,truly one of a kind,such a wealth of knowledge.I will forever treasure our friendship...and admired his love of nature& family...Fly free my special friend...sincerely yours Julie Landrigan
Jeff was a high school friend, and even though he was never my "boyfriend", I loved him. Everybody did, he just had a way about him. He was truly one of a kind - the type of guy who, if he was your friend, you knew had your back. Pam, you probably don't remember, but you guys helped me run away from home when I was 15! Jeff bought a bunch of silver from me to make his beautiful bracelets and rings, you bought my hair dryer (the kind with the cap that you hooked the hose on and put the thing over your big head when you had rollers in so you looked like a space man!) You both took me to the bus station the night I Ieft and gave me a ton of moral support. I was very grateful. If not for facebook we may never have been in touch again, but I was so happy when Maureen found you guys! My mind went right to the fun, crazy stuff we did as teenagers, and we laughed so hard remembering...
I'm so sorry he's gone Pam, I know he will be missed by so many people. I'm glad I got to know him - for however short a period of time - he touched my life in a very special way. Rest in peace Jeff.

I had the pleasure of knowing Jeff since I was a child and would go over to his house with my stepfather and would admire all of his taxidermy. Then my husband and I had the pleasure of becoming his neighbor for a while. Jeff was the most loving, generous, kind-hearted man and I always enjoyed our visits. Our deepest sympathies go out to the family. Jeff will truly be missed!!
R.I.P. My dear school friend I remember when you mailed me the Indian necklace you made for me with the letter I will always cherish them. Jeff was the kindest most gentlest friend I’ve ever had. He would do anything for anyone he was a good Soul. I pray for peace for your family and your close friends may you find calmness in this time of turmoil love Maureen Kirkpatrick
I am so sorry for your loss. Jeff was such a kind soul and always a friend to law enforcement. I remember when I was a young deputy he gave his number and told me to call if I ever needed help. He will be very much missed.
Pam and Jeffery,
I am so sorry. Sending Hugs and Prayers. I will miss Jeff and are long talks at Walmart. He was a fabulous person. I will never forget him. We would always laugh so much when he came into the office.
Fly high my friend.
My condolences to the family. Jeff was a patriot and a great American. I have missed seeing you my friend and watch over us now in these turbulent times. Rest in peace. Till we meet again. Paul Lauricella
Dear Pam, and Family.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I don’t need to tell you how good a Man he was because you shared many years with him. I Loved all the hunting stories Jeff told me.
I remember when he restored my Musky fish mount. He did such an Awesome job on it. I also remember my first deer mount he did for me.
Jeff, you will be missed by so many friends and family. See you in Heaven my friend. God bless and R.I.P

Pam, Jeff and family -
I am so sorry to hear this. Jeff was a hard-working family man, and well-liked by all that knew him. I hope all the
happy memories you have shared over the years will help you all get through this difficult time. Prayers for all
Jeff had a generous soul. His love for family and those around him was only matched by his love of nature and the preservation of it. An artist in every sense of the word, he could create something as beautiful as DaVinci could out of what ever was laying around and with something as simple as a rusty spoon and a lump of coal. He took pride in his creations, each of them meticulous, vibrant, real as life, as if it were the hand of God himself recreating the feathers of a pheasant, the scales of a bass, or the antlers of a jack-a-lope.
A great story teller with a sharp wit and silver tongue - he could immerse you into a story or joke as if you thought you were there yourself, and make you laugh until you cried from his gap-toothed grin and giggle. His way with words and phrases should have their own dictionary. May they be real or made up, they were infectious and would dance in your mind over and over again until you began repeating them in everyday conversation that would make people give you a second look. Your favorite song lyrics had no meaning once they were rewritten on the fly in the mind of this man, more funny, with better rhyming.
Whether it was out on the road on his hog or at home in his house, he was quick to acknowledge his love for his country and the respect of his brothers in arms. I never knew a time when he didn't have the flags flying to remind everyone we don't ever forget the sacrifices those have made for this country.
From the first time I met him, I knew like everyone else, he had a presence. His style, his actions, his words, they all told a tale of striving for a life of freedom. It lives on in his family, his grandchildren, and to his extended family of friends and companions.
To Jeffrey and Pam, he was like a second father to me. The time I spent with your family growing up will last me a lifetime. Your pain is my pain. May he rest in peace, guided into an eternal forest by Tami's song, to a better place where he can shine down on all of us.
