Carlene and family, we will miss seeing Jeff at the monthly breakfast at the clubhouse. Very glad I got to talk with Jeff at the last breakfast.

I met Jeff when he joined our Lions Club and enjoyed his company and involvement with the club. He and I were the tail twister(s) for the club for several years. He will be missed by all of us "Lions" Reply to this comment

I met Jeff as he joined our East Cobb Lions Club and was surprised to find he was a fellow Purdue Boilermaker. He remained active with the club throughout the progress of his illness-- a brave man whom I wish I had gotten to know better. Reply to this comment

We only knew Jeff for 5 years in the Retreat and we are so happy for those years. He was a great man and neighbor. A very brave man. I enjoyed conversations with him about mowing, Big Ten Football and his career with IBM. Carlene and family you are in our thoughts and prayers. Reply to this comment
