Jeff’s great loves in life were his family, friends, and the great outdoors. Nothing made him happier than spending a day with all his children & grandkids in one place. He treasured time gathering with extended family & friends, especially when there was a good meal involved. He had a gift for retelling stories of the good ole days.
He was an outdoorsman in every sense of the word. He had a lifelong passion & skill for hunting and fishing. He loved time spent in the woods or on the water with friends. He took great pride in the family homeplace on Grinders Creek. He was a part of that landscape as much as every tree, stream, and valley it encompasses.
He served the Hohenwald community as a painter alongside his son. He took pride in his work as he made his way into the homes & businesses within the community & counted many of his clients as friends along the way.
He is preceded in death by his parents.
He leaves behind treasured memories in his children: Lindsay (Chad) Brackeen, Kendall Landers, and Cole Brackeen; grandchildren: Rylee & Ava Kibbe, Avery & Emery Dabbs, and Ashton Brackeen; sister, Melody (Tom) Eddins; Donna Brackeen, with whom he shared his children and grandchildren; a large host of extended family & dear friends.
