Oh Cora Lee, I'm so sorry to hear about Jeff. I know you did everything you could. I weep with you.

Mary Ann Igoe from Blackfoot on Jan. 9, 2024

Tom and I send our sincerest condolences and hugs to Cora Lee and family. We met Jeff in college and he was a tough competitor on the Woodsman Team. He enjoyed canoeing, axe throw, and cross cut, but would jump in wherever needed in a competition. We were very fortunate to have him on our Woodsman team, and we were very fortunate when he joined our family. His competitiveness has served him well these last few years as he battled cancer with the same competitive tenacity. Jeff, you will be dearly missed.

It breaks my heart ,Cora Lee! You were such a great companion for Jeff throughout the cancer battle!
Jeff was one of the sweetest men I'd ever met. You both have been such wonderful friends for over 30 years. Know you are dearly, and deeply loved.

Jeff was a great guy. I am very sorry for your loss.

Wendy Nelson from Frewsburg on Jan. 11, 2024

Jeff, my cousin quite, unassuming, gentle, compassionate, patient, wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. Growing up country neighbors in Beaver Dams playing hide and seek, and other outdoor games, swinging on the tire in your parents yard, we grew up graduated and I married and moved away we barely saw each other over the next 50 years but were always close at heart. You were truly a family man, a man of God, a hard worker, and helped many. You are leaving a big void for your family and close friends and in time the deep pain will partially dull and the good warm memories of you will live forever. Wendy Lawrence Nelson

Cora Lee I'm so sorry to learn of Jeff's passing. Sending prayers for comfort for you and your family.

Yvonne Daggett from Canandaigua, NY on Jan. 12, 2024

Jeff was always helping somebody, including me. He never made me feel like I was being a pain, regardless of whatever clunker I brought him to look at. He looked so happy the last time I saw him, of course because he was playing with his grandchildren. Cora Lee, you know that you and your family are always in my prayers.

Greg Thomas from Cayuta, NY on Jan. 12, 2024

Jeff, you and I met in 1979, working together. It always amazed me, how we became such great friends.
We were exact opposite's. You liked country, I liked rock n roll; you liked Dale, I liked Davey; you liked Budweiser, I liked Miller; you like the Giants, I liked the Bills; you liked Chevy, I liked Ford; and on and on.
I often wondered, what Coralee thought, when you dragged this skinny stray in? Probably, figured she had better stock up on peas and start deep frying some more Mac and cheese.
You never insulted me for my abnormal size, but defended me when another coworker tried to. We were both hard workers and enjoyed every minute together.
Also, we were the best damn porch monkeys ever, while listening to Waylon, Willie and Merle. Wore those records out!
It's been a tough few days, but we will all get through this. There's a "tear in my beer" as I type this.
You have a beautiful family, that I was so lucky to be a member.
Jeff, you were my coworker, my friend, then my best friend, my truckin partner, and my best man. But most of all, you are my Buddy Roe! And that will never change. Love ya!

Vickie Lawrence from Peoria, Arizona on Jan. 12, 2024

Jeff and I were cousins. Our families lived on the Johnson Hollow Road, not far apart. In 1979 I moved to Phoenix Arizona, and we loss contact. So I will share fond memories.
Growing up we had fun playing childhood game, ( red rover, hide n seek, red light green light, swinging on the big tire in his parents yard, hiding in my parents 3 level barn and more). On occasional Grandma Lawrence call, I can't find the Kids. So one of my siblings or I would go locate them for Grandma.
Jeff had a gentle spirit, was quiet and unassuming. As he grew, married and had children, he became a great and loving Husband, father and provider.
My heart goes out to Cora Lee, his family, and his siblings. Loosing loved ones is never easy. Remember to take the time to greave your loss, and feel your pain, this is all part of healing. Also remember the good times this will help you through. May God continue to hold you close in his loving arms, giving you peace and comfort. Vickie Lawrence

Debbie Evans from Denver CO on Jan. 14, 2024

Sending a message of sympathy for your loss. Jeffrey was my cousin. We spent many days in Grandma's house doing all sorts of activities. We read books, played flashcards and roamed outdoors on the big lawn. Jeff always was happy and smiling. When his family moved to the country, there were many more, fun visits. We were so happy when he trekked off to college and met the love of his life, Cora Lee. We heard all about his employment ventures. We were truly happy he was always doing so well for his children and grandchildren. We will miss him every day as we loved him every day he was alive. He was a good kid and a God fearing man for all of us to admire. He is in heaven today and always.
