Family was always very important to Jeff, he would do anything for his wife, kids, 5 grandkids and sisters.
Jeff enjoyed watching his kids and grandkids play any kind of sport and activity they were involved with. He loved to watch his Dallas Cowboys and ride his motorcycle. His favorite place to be was his garage, and if you ever drove by Jeff and Tina’s house you would more than likely see him out there doing something.
