Armstrong II, Jeffrey L. - Quincy  
QUINCY -- Jeffrey L. Armstrong II, 21, of Springfield, Ill., formerly of Quincy, died Sunday (July 26, 2015) at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield. Born Feb. 2, 1994, in Quincy, Jeffrey was a son of Jeffrey L. Armstrong and Janet Benning Armstrong. Jeffrey was employed as a loan officer with Credit Pro Autos in Springfield. Survivors include his mother, Janet L. Armstrong of Fort Myers, Fla.; his father, Jeffrey L. Armstrong of Quincy; his sister, Jessalyn R. Armstrong of New York City; his maternal grandparents, Thelma Benning Feldkamp (Henry) of Canton, Mo.; his paternal grandmother, Sandra Bush of Quincy; his significant other, Jamie Hruska of Springfield; one aunt, Ruth Parrish of Quincy; three uncles, Eric Bush (Susan), Jason Bush, and Michael Benning (Karen); and several cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, James Hardin Benning; paternal grandparents, Francis Lozelle and Mary Louise Armstrong; paternal grandparent, Robert "Bob" Bush; one uncle, Richard Parrish; and one aunt, Bridgette Tipton Bush. Although Jeffrey's body has passed, his spirit and the memories that we have of him will live on. If you ask someone to describe Jeffrey, the first thing that comes to mind is creative. He spent hours drawing, sketching, and writing. Quentin (one of Jeffrey's best friends) said, "Jeffrey was creative for days. He was way more creative than anyone I've ever met." And most will agree with that statement. Jeffrey also wrote countless poems and had a certain way with words; he could charm the socks off anyone. Whether he was writing a romantic rhyme or using large words in everyday conversation, he lit up the room and gained the attention and respect of all there. Now, if he actually knew the definition of those large words, that is a different story. Jeffrey also loved tattoos. He told his sister one time that he had two job paths: to become a tattoo artist in Boulder, Colo., or to live in Jamaica in a hut and chisel tourist items out of wood. Now, he didn't actually become a tattoo artist, but Jeffrey loved his tattoos and was so proud of them. After art, Jeffrey's next love was animals. Jeffrey owned just about every household pet possible at some time or another. He loved his childhood dog, Buddy, his dog now, Doobie, and his new puppy, Bander. He also owned Sweetheart (a parrot), hamsters, guinea pigs, salamanders and fish. At one time he wanted to be a veterinarian, but never pursued that path because he wouldn't be able to euthanize an animal. Jeffrey was a man of many traits and skills. He played soccer starting at age 4 and went to Europe twice to play in international soccer tournaments. His soccer team was more like a brotherhood, as they stuck together through the years and shared many great memories all over the world. Jeffrey was spontaneous, individualistic, bull-headed, argumentative, loving and zany. Jeffrey was the type of guy that you may not have seen him for a year or two, but the moment you did, it was like time had never passed. Now, as we hold Jeffrey close to our hearts, hold the memories you have of him even closer. Jeffrey gave us the power and strength to be an individual and express ourselves freely (i.e. remember the skinny jeans trend he started). He gave us the wisdom to think with an open mind not limited to social norms or proven facts, as not all things are as they seem. He gave us wit and laughter as he always had the last witty word, and he filled us with kindness and respect that he always showed others. "Don't worry. Be happy." – Bob & Jeffrey SERVICES: 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, at the Crossing (main campus at 48th and Maine) in Quincy by Pastor Tony Bedora. Burial will follow in Evergreen Cemetery at Camp Point. VISITATION: 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 31, at the Crossing in Quincy. MEMORIALS: Jeffrey L. Armstrong Memorial Fund. Proceeds received will be distributed to the Community Foundation and Homeward Bound Waggin'. ARRANGEMENTS: Lummis-Hamilton Funeral Home, Camp Point. WEBSITE: hamiltonfuneralhomes.net .
