Hi Jan
I am so sorry to hear about Jeff, I just found out about it yesterday. You and Jeff were good friends and it's always sad when you loose one. Thinking over the years I worked with you and Jeff we sure had some good times and a few sad ones but that's the way it goes.

Janis,
Jeff had a kind heart, unique personality, great sense of humor and will be missed by the hundreds, if not thousands, of people who knew him. I first met him in 1976, my wife in 1984 and one just couldn't help but like him. No doubt there is much grieving amongst the many Metroids who survive him, as it really was like a family during the pre-County days of Camelot AKA Metro Transit and Jeff touched many lives. Our thoughts are with you during this trying time Janis.

I never knew Jeff but heard a lot about him. I am married to his brother, Jon. We currently live in La Conner and Jon lost touch with him before we were married 35 years ago. So sorry to hear about your loss. Jon says he has fond boyhood memories with many laughs.

I also had Jeff as an instructor at Metro and then the privilege of working with him until his retirement. He was one of the best and I am better off for having had the opportunity to know him. Thank you, Jeff.

I was trained by Jeff both as an operator and as a supervisor. We spent many "happy hours" together and I will miss him. Janis I share your grief and know that Jeff is pain free and in a better place now.
