He was a father, brother, grandfather, uncle, great-grandfather, and friend. Jeff was a great fisherman, hunter, and provider for his family and all. He was proud of his service for his country.
Jeff was a very caring, loving, and giving man with a good heart. He never met a stranger, and he loved to teach his little tricks of hunting and fishing. He taught his sons, daughters, and grandchildren all his trades.
Jeff was a jokester and one heck of a story teller to make people laugh. He loved life, all his children and family. Jeff loved Della, his wife that there are no words that can describe. They were together, inseparable always for 59 years.
Jeff worked at the City of Heavener and retired from there. He helped so many people throughout his life. Jeff raised his children to respect all and gave his heart, which was so big. He had enough love to go around for everyone. He was proud of his service for his country and proudly wore it.
