Jeffrey was a great mechanic. His nieces and nephews would call him long distance with car issues, and he would question them “What type of sound is it making? What is it doing?” they would respond, and he would tell them exactly what was wrong and advised them regarding what to purchase for the repair of the car! He inherited his strong work ethic from both of his parents.
Jeff was loved dearly by his family especially his nieces and nephews. He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him dearly.
