A shame; he was accomplished at an early age,. taken away too soon. Didn't know he had published a book. I am curious to look into it now. Jeff was a quiet,intellectual guy, friendly,peacemaker. Obviously, a Christian Soldier.

I grew up down the street from Jeff on East Main Street. Our parents took turns taking us to school. We played a bunch of football in the front yard of Stillwell Place and "horse" in front of the garage where he could shoot a mean basketball!!! My wife and I had the honor of hearing Jeff deliver one of his sermons one sunday morning. Jeff loved Jesus and was a "wonderful christian leader and great father to his children". Prior to his passing my son and daughter played tee-ball with his two oldest sons which gave Jeff and I an opportunity to re-visit our childhood friendship. I look forward to seeing my friend again someday.
