Jeffrey David Olmstead Obituary
Olmstead, Jeffrey David
August 6th, 1965 - April 4th, 2016. Jeffrey David Olmstead was born on August 6, 1965 in Concord Massachusetts. In 1975 the family moved to Alexandria Virginia and in 1980 permanently settled in Phoenix Arizona. Jeff was an active child; excelling in sports such as baseball, basketball and track throughout middle school and high school. His quick wit, love of music and winning smile enabled him to easily make friends throughout his life. He had a strong natural ability in mechanics, using his ability to repair bicycles, motorcycles, and cars around the neighborhood. His pride and joy would always be his 1975 MGB Hardtop. As an adult, Jeff enjoyed watching sports, science fiction television, video games and always had his beloved dog Cisco by his side. Living just a few miles from his mother Janet, they enjoyed many an evening watching exciting sporting events, both being avid fans. He loved spending time with his nephew Tyler talking video games and watching his niece Keri play sports. Jeff thought all his nieces and nephews including Alexandra, Taylor and Charlie in addition to Tyler and Keri hung the moon. Never a word was spoken about any of them without a smile on his face. Jeff's neighbors always spoke highly of him, admiring his pleasant nature and devotion to his pet. Jeffrey David Olmstead was found at peace on Monday April 4, 2016, with his beloved dog Cisco refusing to leave his side. He was 50 years young. He is survived by his sister Jennifer R. Hetherington, brother John C. Olmstead and 5 nieces and nephews. Jeff is preceded in death by his mother and best friend Janet Ann Olmstead. His spirit of adventure, humor and confidence will be sorely missed.
