Jeffrey L. Small
Jeffrey L. Small, 55, died Friday, July 1, 2016, in Glen Rock after sustaining injuries in a work-related accident.
Born on Tuesday, October 25, 1960, in Gettysburg, he was a son of the late Charles F. Small, Sr. and Irene R. Wolf Small. A member of the 1978 class of South Western High School, he spent his career doing what he loved, driving trucks and hauling heavy equipment. Jeff enjoyed the challenge of his jobs; the importance was not in the destination, but it was in the journey to get there. He liked the attention of turning heads and getting people to laugh. He had many friends who were family at the Hanover Hotel, the American Legion, and DJ's (the old Pony Bar). He loved to shoot pool, throw darts and dance to classic country tunes.
He is survived by his fiancée of four years, Kelly A. Burgan; four brothers, Charles F. Small, Jr. and his wife, Kathy, of Hampton, Md., John A. Small of Waynesburg, Jerome "Pete" Small of Hanover and George E. Small and his wife, Michelle, of East Berlin; and his cat, Oscar, and dog, Sandy.
The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 7, 2016, at Panebaker Funeral Home & Cremation Care Center, Inc., 311 Broadway, Hanover. Burial will follow in the New Lutheran Cemetery in Manchester, Md. The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.
In addition to other memorials, contributions may be made to The Make a Wish Foundation, 4742 N. 24th St. – Suite 400, Phoenix, AZ 85016, as he was active with the truck convoy.

Sadly, I didn't hear the news about Jeff until July 18. It really took me by surprise and saddened me very much. I met Jeff in the late 70's or early 80's. I grew up watching him and his brothers working on & driving their mustangs, chevelles, and pintos, etc. I broke my wrist in one of our many backyard football games with him and his brothers. I loaded his truck for him when he drove for J.F. Rohrbaugh. I still remember him and his then wife, Polly, "Cowboy" dancing at my wedding. We were also fortunate to be neighbors in New Oxford. Unfortunately we lost touch in early to mid 2000. When we would run into each other we would always talk about hanging out sometime....sorry I didn't follow through. Farewell Jeff....some of my best childhood memories involved you. Thank you for all of them.
