Jeff loved his family more than life itself, especially his 3 granddaughters. He said his family was the only thing he did right.

Jeff loved watching football and hockey, he was a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. You always knew when the Steelers were playing on the television because the walls would rattle when they made a touchdown. Playing ‘Magic the Gathering’ with his best friend Stephen was something Jeff loved. You always knew when he was around, as you could hear him a mile away. Jeff will be remembered as a caring, devoted, loving and funny husband, father, grandpa, son, brother and friend. He was a “give the shirt off of his back” kind of guy, he will be missed by so many.
