These pictures were taken on a trip to Deals Gap to ride the \'Tail of the Dragon\'. We took the Cherohala Parkway, rode the \'dragon\' and visited the Harley-davidson Dealership in Marysville, Tn..

Gone too soon. We shared so many life firsts together and made wonderful memories. You now walk with the Angels but you will live in our children's hearts forever. Be at peace.

Jeff holds a special place in all our families hearts. We had such happy times together at family outings, trips and get togethers. I remember golfing trips to Wisconsin and Palm Desert where he could hit that ball beyond 300 yds. At night we would play cards and laugh so loud with funny stories the hotel management would call to tell us we were too loud. He loved life and said it should be lived. I’m sure he slide into those pearly gates sideways with a chocolate bar in one hand and a beer in the other saying, “Hot damn what a ride”!

Jeff was my brother in law for the past 19 years. He always made me laugh at him and with him. He was such a guy. He loved life and living his best life in California. He will be sadly missed and was taken far too soon. RIP brother.

Jeff was always such a beautiful human being, always with a smile on his face, always a joke to be had, took care of his family and his employees and his colleagues. He was a beautiful soul. May he rest in peace💙❤️💔😭
