Heard of Jeff's passing via facebook. We were Army buddies back 30 years ago. We (Jeff, Mike M, Mike G, Tom M) had some great times back with the "fighting 344th MP Co back in the eighties. We had drill weekend and then we would all crashed at my house I rented near Southern CT State. We had some great times on Annual Training in the summer. Jeff was a great guy to work and hang with. I still have a Thermos he gave me when he worked at the Thermos plant. You'll be missed Jeff.

Jeff will be missed by so many. I served with Jeff back in the 80's in the 344th
So many laughs along the way. We reconnected through facebook a few years ago. Missed an opportunity to meet up a few years ago in Myrtle Beach.
Would have loved just one more of those bear hugs! Rest easy my brother......

Jeff was the sunshine on a rainy day. Jeff delivered happiness where ever he went. Jeff no matter how bad things were always had a great positive attitude. Jeff came to work everyday, he worked whenever he could, he took the OT. He was a great Dad, loved his girls and his grand babies. His girls meant everything to him. Jeff really loved life. He loved to soak in the pool with a cold one on those seriously hot days. He always talked about his neighborhood where everyone chipped in. Whether cutting each other’s grass or when it came picnic time it was an open door. Jeff loved his work family too. He left me a candy or Hershey’s chocolate kiss on my keyboard nearly everyday. Jeff loved his music, while he worked he listened to country and sang and danced to every word.. believe me he knew every word to every song!! Jeff was a gentle giant he smiled and laughed all the time! When you walked away you didn’t realize it but you too now had a smile on your face. What kind of guy was Jeff? He was this kind, he asked you how you were doing, he meant it. Every night he walked over to Midagraphics, tapped the window and waved good bye. That’s the kind of guy he was, he made you feel good. Everyone at Amgraph is going to miss Jeff for all of the wonderful things he brought to all of us. He was very good at his job he knew his stuff! He was a permanent fixture at Amgraph and at all of our get togethers he was the life of the party!! His passing is a great loss in many many ways. God Bless his family.

I remember being the first one to greet Jeff on his first day of work at Amgraph around 35 years ago,after the day I knew I found a special friend. And for the next 35 years we became the best of friends,doing numerous trips,hanging out,poker games at his house,partys,bar hopping (Turbaks back in the day),but what I remember most is the daily talks we had at work almost every workday,we talked sports,and we both loved talking about our children to each other.He loved Kaitlyn and Lauren so much and that's when he had the biggest smile,i remember when he told me he was having children and how happy he was,and although I didn't see them very often,he kept me up to date on everything in their lives,i know personally how much he loved those 2 girls,more than anything! And they turned out to be such great people just like their Dad,love you girls.And on Jeffs final day of work before his death I was the last one to say good bye to him and we laughed as we left the parking lot and went to our cars for the final time..35 years of unforgettable times,talks and love to a great man you rarely have a chance to meet in a lifetime!!  Love you brother and will definitely never forget you,gonna miss you...
