Jeff lived across the street and was a neighbor of mine for over 30 years. He was an all around good guy and was very talented. Jeff was always willing to lend a hand and help with projects. Until I moved we would visit regularly, talk about sports and life in general. He'd share stories of his travels, vehicles, and his beloved dogs Son and Dig.
Thanks for the memories, RIP Jeff your race is now run!

My favorite childhood memories of my cousin Jeff, are many but particularly the breakfasts spent at Grandma & Grandpa Pammenter's for a meal only Grandma could make. Of course, it included pancakes & the inevitable 'Pancake Eating Contest' with the Geary Boys ensued. If memory serves me correctly, though the younger, Jeff won most of those contests. My brother Ronnie & I were in awe. As a teen, when in Siloam Springs, Jeff tolerated taking me cruising the town on the weekend, stopping to talk with friends, picking up a bite to eat or whatever. He was a "good egg", as my mom would say. Another good memory were Jeff's trucking stops that took him to California with a stop in Diamond Bar to visit us. I loved Jeff's sense of humor and his authenticity most of all. As the years passed & our mother's grew older, I treasure the memories of taking Mom to visit Dorothy & Jeff. We all shared fond memories & had some good laughs. After Dorothy passed away Mom kept in closer contact with Jeff, always calling him on his birthday & Jeff calling her frequently just to say hi. Jeff loved his Aunt Millie & his expressions of love were not lost on me. I treasure these memories of Jeff. My childhood would not have been complete without Jeff and the 'Geary Boys'.

I send my heartfelt condolences to Jeff's brothers, cousins & many friends who will also miss this genuine, loving, humorous & dedicated man who stood by his mother's side through thick & thin, who served our country with dignity & honor & who we could count on to be real, who suffered great pain & is now at peace in a new body, likely running around visiting those who went before. Jeff, are you wearing your trademark bib-overalls? (another endearing thing about Jeff.) I would say 'Rest in Peace', but something tells me you are busy visiting & enjoying your eternal home in your new healthy body. Please greet everyone for me, especially, Dad & Mom (Tom & Milly). Until we meet again, Jeff...

Jeffrey was a good lifelong friend. He always enjoyed being with his friends. Life is fleeting. I'm proud to say he was my Friend. I'll miss seeing his "big smile" on top of his overalls.
