Sorry to hear about the loss of Jeff. I worked with him for 11 years. He was such a great guy. We had a lot of good times with Jeff at work. He made it more bearable in the work place.

Jeff was a young Marine, at Camp Pendleton. Like maybe 18 years old so I was probably 13 or 14 and I wanted a bike 10 speed. I wrote him a letter asking him if he could help. Sent me the money and me and mom went and got it. Bright orange and I loved it. Jane (Mclaughlin) Schmitt Sister Go fly dear brother.
