Jeffrey DuWayne Grove
Jeff Grove passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, July 26, 2014, in Page, AZ, with his wife Cheryl by his side. He was 56 years old. Jeff was born on February 10, 1958 in North Dakota, to Edgar Lee and Clara Belle Story Grove. He had many different passions during his life, including playing the drums, flying airplanes, taking trips and trying new things. Jeff loved music and had a song for every situation. He was also a diehard Seminole Fan. Jeff and his wife Cheryl spent the last five months visiting beautiful parks in AZ, Utah and Colorado. Jeff was also working at Lake Powell Sports Store, where he was able to do what he loved - talking with people and helping them make their days a little better. While living in Tallahassee, he had worked most recently for Dade Paper as a sales executive. His sales career was very successful but he was better known for his good heart, compassion, sense of humor, quick wit, animated personality and always trying to help. He is preceded in death by his mother, Clara Belle Grove. Jeff is survived by his wife Cheryl Phoenix, father Ed "Shot" Grove, daughter Ashley Grove, son Casey and Betsy Grove, son Justin and Samantha Grove, son Aric Grove, step-son Josh Samman, and grandchildren Andrew Stone, Ryder Law, Mavrick Cash and McKenzie Belle Grove. A Celebration of life will be held on Sunday, August 3, 2014 at Culley's MeadowWood, 1737 Riggins Road, at 1:00, with the family receiving guests from 12:00 - 1:00. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages everyone to take time with their loved ones, go on an adventure, and live fully - just as Jeff had.
