So sorry to hear about Jeff's passing. His mom is my cousin. Thoughts and prayers to family.
There are so many great memories with this wonderful man, one of my personal favorites is when we were coming home from Knoxville, after a long day of having some drinks, we get in the car and Jeff thought we were in drive but still in park the car says rum rum going nowhere Jeff and I busted up laughing, Rhett was like, what are you guys doing? every now and then Jeff would just say out of nowhere RUM RUM and there we go again laughing tell our bellys hurt. so many great memories and stories..you always made me laugh Mr. Brown, I really miss you at work, when I look real hard I can still see you...Although Im not a very good Hunter, You and you son took me out in the woods and always made it a great time, Thank you for that...I love you my dear friend, Fort Dodge well never be the same without you here....
There are many different types of friends, the ones that become family are extraordinary. Jeff was my brother. We worked (3 different places) together, we laughed together, we drank together and when one of us had something heavy on our minds we talked and listened together. It's sometimes rare to find those friends, brothers. I'm going to miss seeing that jeep parked at work, the sometimes uncontrolled laughter while we were being us during meetings or just hanging out. I could go on for pages and pages here but instead I'll just say.... I love you brother. It's been a pleasure to call you my friend.
Sincere thoughts and prayers for all of Jeffs loved ones. May you find strength and guidance during this most difficult time.
