I was just (August, 2014) searching for Jeff's contact information in the Colgate Alumni Directory with every intention of calling him. I put it off too long. When I saw the inscription "Deceased," across Jeff's entry in the directory I was shocked and didn't believe it. It had to be a mistake. I wondered how to contact his sisters that I knew so well and couldn't figure a way to do it. I finally Googled and found this obituary. What a note of finality! I grew up with Jeff in Cazenovia. We were in Explorers together and were fraternity brothers at Colgate. Summers we took road trips to Lake George and Cape Cod in his father's MGA. Jeff rode second seat on my Honda 50 motor scooter. I was his best man at his first (I think) wedding. The "I think" tells you that we had fallen out of touch. Yet I always thought that I would see him one more time again. Let this be a lesson to all. You can imagine the sadness; I can't begin to think how his father and brothers and sisters feel: you have my heartfelt condolences.

My condolences to you all. I knew Jeff through Wild Sage. Although I enjoyed browsing the entire store, mostly I shopped there for books and he'd often ask how many I was currently reading as I often read 3 at a time. Such a loss for you and for Pittsfield! Be comforted by God's peace.

Jeff was one of the first people I met 12 years ago when I bought a house in Pittsfield - I went to a Tag Sale he was running and spent $30 for a few pieces of furniture. He offered to deliver it for free since I lived 1/4 mile away, and he ultimately brought me two truckloads of furniture and another truckload of bushes. That was the best $30 deal ever. I frequented Wild Sage over the years, and he sold some of my artwork at his store a few years ago. He was always smiling and encouraging everyone to be constructive and creative and optimistic. He will be missed.

Jeff,
May you find that treasure in the sky...

Jeff became my first Berkshire landlord when I moved here in 1988. He was cheerful and resourceful, with a can-do attitude. The property was a quaint and charming guest house on East Main in Stockbridge, and had outbuildings full of old chairs hanging from the collar ties. Jeff lived in the main house just across the driveway. In the busyness of life we saw little of Jeff, but he always came through when we needed him. My housemate asked for a washer and dryer, amenities previously absent--done. When the price of gas spiked in the winter, I asked if I could install a woodstove--no problem. The Walk to Prevent Homelessness was routed down East Main Street that year, and as I walked past I saw throngs of people in our driveway. There was Jeff and his chairs, and considerably more stuff. I stepped out of the walk briefly to see a wonderful yard sale in progress, Jeff in his glory. When the walk was over, I came home to find a few treasures left, and still have a set of retro tea bag holders from that day.
God bless Jeff Winslow.
