    I remember Jeff as a little round-faced boy full of sunshine that was covered with freckles & a head of red hair…. how strange that he & I worked together years after I worked for you, Bruce. Hope you & the family can find peace & comfort,knowing he is at peace & without the pain. Hugs & Love Penny

    I am deeply sadden that Jeffs’ life ended way too soon on this earth.I had high hopes of Jeff’s despair & misfortunes to end soon IN his life, not to TAKE his life.There is so much more for him to be part of yet, memories to made with our Grandchildren Majestic,Evan,Skyler and future grandbabies & perhaps marriages yet to happen for our sons.Jeff had too many misfortunes in his life, more than any ONE person should have had to bare! WHY COULDN’T HE HAVE HAPPINESS BEFORE DYING?JEFF WAS A KIND HEARTED MAN, HE DIDN’T DESERVE TO END UP SO BROKEN, SO DISHEARTENED.I PRAY THAT HE NOW CAN ENJOY PEACE, BE REJOINED WITH HIS FISHIN’ BUDDIES AL & CHARLIE (WHOSE LIVES ALSO ENDED TOO SOON)TO REMINISCE THOSE FISHING STORIES & CATCH ALL THE BLUE GILL & PERCH THEY CAN JUST TO THROW BACK IN AS THEY OFTEN DID!MOSTLY HE IS JOINED NOW WITH HIS MOM, ROSALYN.A TRULY MAGNIFICENT LADY!AN ABSOLUTELY ONE OF A KIND, BROKE THE MOLD KIND OF MOM;THE MOST WONDERFUL KINDEST THOUGHTFUL PERSON I HAVE EVER IN THIS LIFE HAD THE PLEASURE OF LOVING & KNOWING.HE IS REJOICING IN BEING WITH HER AGAIN, HE HAS MISSED HER GREATLY! SO WITH THAT PRAYER, I AM POSITIVE NOW OF JEFF BEING WHERE HE SHOULD BE, EMBRACING PEACE & HAPPINESS IN THE LOVING ARMS OF OUR LORD & SAVIOUR CHRIST JESUS, AND IN THE LOVING CARE OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.” FAREWELL JEFF, YOU ARE FOREVER A PART OF ME, LOVE PATTY

    This has me miserable. Jeff was an uncommonly upbeat, friendly guy. Plus I distinctly remember him telling me in the second grade (1961-62) about the LASER, which had only very recently been invented at Hughes.
