Jeff was such a kind, gentle, funny man. My life has been so blessed for knowing him and the many laughs we have enjoyed. A favorite song that brought us much laughter was Sam and Dave’s Thank You. I will never hear it without remembering Jeff and laughing at his version of it. God bless and comfort An and family at their terrible loss. Eileen G. Lake

Uncle Jeff and Mr. Baroni were both Navy vets whose influence led me to joining when I was in need of guidance in my life, and I now credit my Navy service to my success in life for my family and my career. I won’t ever forget his kindness and compassion for everyone he encountered. My deepest sympathies to Aunt Anne, Jimmy, Chrissy, and the Baroni family.

Rest In Peace, Jeff. Our frienship began in 1963 when I taught you at Cardinal Dougherty High School. Over the years we kept in touch and you became my teacher. You taught me how to accept suffering with grace and dignity. This was your pathway to peace. Now you enjoy eternal serenity living in the Presence of God. Thank you for being such a good teacher for me and many others. Your spirit lives on.

Dear Anne Marie we are deeply saddened with the the sudden loss of Jeff. He was and will always be in our memory. He was truly a kind and thoughtful man who made an impression on our family as I am sure many others can attest. Earl and Joan always spoke so highly of you both as they did the rest of your family too. I don't know if I ever got to say how much I appreciated you guys stopping by the office with words of encouragement and references when I was about to have surgery. Thank you once more for that kindness and may Jeff rest in peace until we all meet again. Sincerely, Pat & Brenda Hurley and the Hagerty Family

I had the honor to work with Jeff for several yrs. I was happy I also got to know him outside of work. He was one of the best people, I ever met. He always had a smile and kept us laughing. His void will never be filled.

Dear Annemarie and family, While this is such a sad time for you and all who loved Jeff, I have to smile as I think of how friendly and kind Jeff was. In Yiddish he would be labeled a true mensch, very high praise for a person who was considerate and caring towards all he met. . It was so delightful to be part of the group that traveled to KSRA conventions and danced the night away with Jeff leading the festivities. I hope your many happy memories and the love of your family and friends will comfort you at this time. Annemarie I am sending a virtual hug and look forward to a time when I can deliver it in person. Love, Ina
