Jeffery “Jeff” Edward Lilley Obituary

The angels came down through the clouds and escorted Jeffery Edward Lilley "Jeff", of Las Cruces, N.M., to return home to his Heavenly Father on May 16, 2016. Jeff was born on June 30, 1959, in Alamogordo, N.M., and was the youngest son to Jerry and Olga Lilley. He passed away unexpectedly at the age of 56, while visiting family in SLC, Utah.

Jeff graduated from Alamogordo High School in 1977. He was employed by Frito Lay & Fast Wave. Jeff had a great love for music and was Dallas Cowboys biggest fan. His perfect day would be in the mountains, fishing, and sitting around the campfire with family. He will be remembered by his sweet smirk, great cooking, and witty personality. He was a loving and devoted father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend to many who knew him. He had the deepest love for his children, and his sole purpose in life was to be their rock.

He is survived by fiancé, Elsa Gomez of Las Cruces, N.M.; daughters, Aundrea and Amber Lilley; sons, Jeffery D. and Zachary Lilley; and their mother Yvette Malone; grandchildren Elijah, Mikailah and Keirrah Lilley and their father Richard Hunt.
He is also survived by brother, Jerry E. Lilley and wife Sarah of Azerbaijan SSR; sister, Marsha Kiehl and husband Daniel of SLC, Utah; nieces and nephews, Lora Thornberry and husband Mike, and their children Evan, Reid and Carson; Brandon Burling and wife Tamra, and their children Lily and Laurel; Jerry M. Lilley and children Kaden and Staleigh, and their mother Angel; Malia Kekuewa and husband Mark; Mailani Kekuewa and husband Sebastian Kwon, and their children Kainoa and Keanu; Makena Kekuewa and wife Alexis, and their children Maui, Keawe and Kamea; and nephew Jerry Arzu. He is also survived by many caring cousins and friends.

Jeff was preceded in death by his loving parents, Jerry and Olga Lilley.

A memorial service will be held in his honor at First Assembly of God in Las Cruces, NM on Thursday, June 2, 2016, at 6 p.m. Following the services, the family will host a reception at the church.
