Jeff was a graduate of Tilbury High School and Sault College where he earned his pilot licence. Jeff worked 27 years at Meritor in Tilbury and cared for his ailing parents Jack and Audrey, from 2010 until 2017, then enjoyed his work and colleagues at RS Technologies as late as December 2019.
Jeff loved the quiet solitude and friendships at the family cottage on Horwood Lake and the game of golf. He maintained his sense of humour right to the end.
The family also express their gratitude to the special healthcare workers in Chatham and London hospitals and at the Chatham-Kent Hospice.
