Once Jeff turned 50 his health started to go downhill, he had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. There were three surgeries, a dozen of CT & PET scans, a spinal tap, and bone marrow taken. Later in his life, Jeff contracted some more cancer resulting in a tumor in his head, cancer on his spine, and kidney cancer (4th stage).
Jeff had an awesome dog, Sir Charles-Akita. He taught his dog how to use a gallon bucket as a toilet. The dog was very smart and intimidating to people. Sir Charles was very protective of Jeff, nobody tried to pull anything on Jeff when Sir Charles was with him.
