Jeff had many hobbies throughout his life, but farming was his true passion. He loved farming with his grandparents and aunt and after graduating from Covington High School class of 1974 Jeff began farming full time. He enjoyed playing baseball, bicycling, archery as well as scuba diving. In his spare time Jeff liked to play pool with his friends and refurbish baseball gloves for the children of his local little league. While spending time outdoors he could often be found fishing or hunting.
Jeff was known to have many skills, he was a gunsmith, a leatherworker and even began learning how to sew. He had a smile and personality that children, family, friends, even animals adored and for this reason he will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him.
