It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved son, Jeffrey A. Measday, 46, on Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013. Jeff was born in Deming, N.M., July 15, 1967. He was a 1985 graduate of Las Cruces High School; then attended TVI in Albuquerque for one year. Jeff returned to his home in Las Cruces and has been an active member of the community, serving on the Doña Ana Arts Council; served one term as president of the Action Club; won numerous medals in Special Olympics and his latest joy has been participating with the BC Softball team as their coach! Jeff worked in the family business, Metal Craft Company, and also attended classes at DABCC. Jeff touched so many lives, he never met a stranger. He was certain everyone was not only his friend, but loved him and in return he loved and respected all others. Jeff was always happy; he lived and laughed with an infectious exuberance. Although Jeff had many health issues and hardships during his life, he met each challenge with grace and dignity. Never did he lose his love for life or his joyous zest for living and giving to others. We are sadden forever that God has chosen to take this Angel of Life from us so soon, but we know that we was a blessing bestowed upon us. We are so very grateful for the years that we did have with Jeff. He was the cornerstone of happiness, giving, and love in our family. Jeff will be the light in our hearts forever.
