He loved his family more than anything. He was described as a loving husband and father; a wonderful son; and a very protective brother. Jeffery loved spending time with his grandchildren taking them for rides on the four wheelers. In his spare time, he enjoyed watching a baseball game, riding his horses, and just being outside shooting his guns. Though his life was taken far too soon, the memories made will never fade.
