Jeff attended the Chestnut Ridge and Bedford School Districts graduating from Bedford in 1985.
Jeff was always ready and willing to help his family and friends at any given moment. He loved spending time with his daughter, grandchildren, family and friends. He was always running into someone he knew; he would wave, honk, or stop what he was doing and talk for a while. He had his sense of humor and orneriness that was always present. He also enjoyed working on vehicles, motors, hanging out with his friends and being the designated driver while they went to dart tournaments, and getting to ride his Harley. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Friends and family will be received on Tuesday, October 25, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at the J. Edward Blackburn Funeral Home.
