I was shocked and sad to hear this news. Jeff was a highlight of my years at Cornell - a good friend who shared good music and good times. My condolences to his family.
I first met Jeff at college and I will always have fond memories of him playing his 12 string guitar and the glint in his eyes as he was about to smile or pull your leg.
I am so sorry to read Jeff's obituary. Having known him through his teens, I did not have the priveledge of knowing him as an adult but my heart aches for his siblings. It is really hard to grasp that he and Duane are gone and so close together. Remember the good times.
My deepest sympathy to the family> Jeff was a good friend and shall be missed.
My heart fell heavy as i heard the word of Jeff's passing this morning. He came into my life when he fell in love with my mom, and even though that relationship was plagued with turmoil and eventually ended as it had ran its course, there was NEVER a moment when I reached out to Jeff that he wasnt there for me even after the divorce had occured. He was the closest thing to a real Dad I ever had and I will always be thankful for his presence in my life. May you find peace and comfort as we all grieve Jeff's passing. Love and light today and ALWAYS!
My condolences to the family. As a police officer in Muscatine, I had many occasions to work with Jeff, both as an attorney and as a magistrate. I knew him to be extremely knowledgeable and caring in his work and a great representative of the community. I am very sorry to hear of his passing.
Thoughts and Prayers to the family. So sorry for your loss.
With deepest sympathy to Jeff's wonderful family. I shall miss him always. He is at peace.
