Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Jeff was there when you needed help of any kind. He was a kind and sociable man,who was a positive model for all his progeny and their children as well. Jeff was an avid golfer who often put up with my inept efforts at golf. One thing that still brings a smile to me was Jeff's penchant for finding golf balls. He was the only golfer I know who regularly finished with more golf balls than he started with in his golf bag. My condolences to his extended family, Jeff was a good man who will be missed greatly. - Posted by: Echo Ivans (Father of Kristy & Sonia) on: Aug 09, 2015

  • Jeff and my mother were so completely happy together - sharing golf, bingo and winters down south. He was so good to my mom when she was well but also when she was sick and dying with cancer. They were a happy couple and so full of life. - Posted by: Jan Caldwell (Daughter if Dorothy Ritchie) on: Aug 07, 2015
