So sad to learn of Jeff's sudden passing. I last saw him while he was visiting Pittsburgh. He built cell towers in the area. A good guy, a loyal friend, strong minded and a guy who knew what he wanted. Thats how Ill remember Jeff. Many thoughts and prayers go out to family and the loved ones he left behind. Gone way too soon ....

I would like to convey my sincere confidences to the family.

I got to know Jeff very well in the past 10 years. He was a great friend. The man would give you the shirt off of his back if he considered you a friend. I feel very fortunate to say Jeff considered me and my family a friend! I know the past few years were a struggle for him. With his physical condition he was left unable to do the things he loved most. Jeff being Jeff, he did not complain to people about his situation. He managed. Even though he will be missed, Now he can get back to doing the things he loved. Until we are reunited again, and we will be reunited again, rest my freind! Get your practice throwing those shoes. There will be a line ready throw with you. I'll be in it!!
 My sincere condolences to Jeff's family. May your saddened hearts quickly be filled with loving memories.  We have many great memories on the softball field and off!  You will be missed my friend.
