In his short 32 years with us Jeff was a loving son, caring husband, dedicated father, amazing brother and friend. Jeff could make anyone laugh and he made it his responsibility to make those around him as happy as possible. Jeff was a brilliant man who was both admired and respected for his strength and devotion he put forth as a loving provider for his family. He was employed at Severn Trent Services as an Automation Engineer in Torrance, CA. He was an outstanding, hardworking employee who will be greatly missed by his coworkers. In losing Jeff we lost a piece of our hearts that will remain forever empty. Jeff is survived by his wife, Brooke; sons, Austin and Brandon; daughter, Kaley; parents, Rex and Debbie Rice; brother and sister-in-law, Carl and Michelle Rice; brother, Jason Rice; parents-in-law, Ron and Maxine Beiber; grandparents, Carl and Louise Neal; grandmother, Helen Rice and numerous other family members including Alan Shults.
