Dearest Dawn, Kayla and Jeffery Jr. I'm so sorry for your loss. Jeff was a good man and awsome person. I have great memories of him growing up. I miss you all and pray for you through these tough times.

To my sister Dawn, Kayla and Jeffery, Shelby and I deeply saddened by Jeff's passing and we wish you all our deepest condolences. The times we had on our visits were some of the best times we had in our lives. Jeff took Shelby under his wings and showed her so much love. There are so many great memories on our visits from The Dollar Tree, leaving Browns and the "gift" that Jeff found in his lunch box upon his arrival to work. Most of all the love he had for you all. May his love and memories help carry you all through.
I love you all

Had the joy of working with Jeff as mechanical maintenance supervisor. Jeff did things well a d correct. Always creating laughs and smiles. Working at ANO years ago was like family, but my favorite memory was the joy glow on Jeff's face while watching Dawn, Kayla, and Jeffrey target practicing at the gun club range. Great guy-Great family.

Jeff made my years working at ANO more enjoyable for sure. He was always quick witted and joking which helped lighten the atmosphere. You will be sorely missed Jeff, your shoes will very difficult to fill. Prayers for the family and friends of such a good soul.

Jeff and I served together in the US Navy on board USS Robison DDG-12. During long days, weeks, and months we spent at sea, Jeff was always someone who had a joke and a smile to make the tedium less so. He was also a craftsman - someone who took pride in his work and always gave his best. I consider myself lucky to have known and served with him.
