Jeff was a source of wisdom and unconditional kindness to those who had the good fortune to be among his family and friends. Jeff retired May 1, 2021 and realized his dream of owning a home at the beach. Jeff loved to kayak near the Concord Light House in Havre de Grace, MD. He loved his ever-loyal dog, was an avid Baltimore Ravens football fan, his loved his pick-up trucks and finished each evening with a bowl of ice cream!
Jeff will be immeasurably missed by his wife Sandy, children and sisters. His spirit reigns and lives through his beloved family and friends. Rest in Peace, Jeff.
