    RIP - Jeff was a very good friend of mine when I was growing up. He lived across the street and we spent the lazy summers in Davis playing just about every sport you could think of from baseball, basketball, bowling, football, golf, wiffle ball and tennis. He could hit a golf ball further than most; hit home runs with his infamous golf swing and had a wiffle ball curve that broke 6 feet. He was a huge sports fan and fierce competitor. My condolences to his very loving family.

    Thank you, Martin for your kind words. My brother was always so fond of you and your family. We had wonderful days growing up on Linden Lane! Please give my regards to your family. Love, Sue (Jeff's younger sister)

    I was very sad to read about Jeff, and my condolences go out to his family. Jeff was my best friend and we grew up together on Linden Lane in Davis. What I remember most about Jeff was just hanging out with him, often with Abby, the family's black lab. Jeff was a very easy person to be with, and we could just be ourselves around each other. His entire family always me feel welcome when I was at their house. I hadn't seen Jeff for many years but that hasn't changed the way I still feel about a great friend. Every July 11, I say to my wife, Today's Jeff's birthday, and I will continue to say that.

    I am saddened by Jeff's passing. He and his family were kind to me. Only last year when I visited Jeff at Alderson's, I remember how terrific he looked. I could tell he remembered me though he could not speak. I came back this year to visit him again, only he had already passed on. What I feared most came to be. Jeff was no longer there. I was further saddened to read of his loving parents passing. I wish his sister's well and there families as well.
