Long ago friend

I am so very sorry for your loss. Jeff and I were friends when we both worked at Budget rent a car so long ago. He was kind and caring even back then. I’m so glad we reconnected a few years back. Going to miss you!
Mary Berger

My old friend

Jeff and I became friends when he started at Dobb’s at the airport in the early 80’s. Many great memories as we had a core group from work that played softball together, bowled, frisbee golf, played pool and a lot of Euchre games. Anyone who knew Jeff knows how competitive he was in all he did, which always made it fun if you could beat him! The things mentioned in his obituary are how I remember him, kind hearted and someone you wanted to know and be close to. It is heart-breaking to hear of his sudden death. I feel for his family who are left behind and will pray for you all. I’m sorry there could not be visitors for his service. Steve Rodgers

My cousin My friend

My prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time. Wish I could have been there in person. Thankful for all the memories and talks I had with Jeff through the years. He was always there for our family in good times and bad showing his kind heart. I will miss him but so thankful I got to see him not long ago in Albany. I will always see his “smile” when I think of him. Love you all, and may God give you peace and understanding during this time. Love, Lisa

A very special motorcycling buddy

Jeff, myself and Stan Collett, rode together a few times. One day, just myself and Jeff headed to Maysville, I will never forget losing sight of Jeff in my mirrors and headed back to find him, some what concerned that something may have happened to him. I did find him, taking a smoke, not a care in the world, asked if he was OK? yup he said, just needed to rest and a smoke…….. I imagine we had only been riding for 20 minutes !!! Jeff was the calmest person I ever knew – rest in peace buddy.

We will miss you…

You will be truly missed, Jeff. Knowing you for 20 years has been a pleasure.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Truly missed

Getting to know and work closely with Jeff over the last 5 years was an honor. He was a great worker but even more of a great person. He had such a positive impact on so many people. He will be truly missed at Armor and we will not be the same without him. Thoughts and Prayers to the family during this very difficult time.

Heartbroken for your family

Roy, Donna, Sandy, Sherri and the whole family. I was so shocked to hear of Jeff’s passing! It doesn’t seem real. I am so sorry that I won’t be able to attend the funeral, although we will watch on line. Wish I could give each of you a hug. Tim and Jeff were so close. He even called him his little brother. They talked often, and even went on some trips together. Jeff was so good to go and visit Todd as often as he did during his illness. I know he had a kind heart. Know that you all are in my prayers as you go through this terrible time of loss and grief. Love you all❤️ Diana

Roy, Donna and Family

We are just shocked to hear about Jeff. You all are in our thoughts and prayers daily. My God wrap you in his loving arms and give you the comfort you need to endure. Love and prayers for you all.

A good friend that will be missed

I met and knew Jeff from work, but even after I left that company Jeff and I would text weekly (usually about UK basketball, NFL football or golf). We would also meet up to have breakfast and visit. Jeff was always a gracious host, a good listener and friend. His passing was completely and utterly unexpected. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Steve (Lisa) Estes

My Good Friend

Jeff and I spent many good times together. He was a great host and very generous. He was by far the most athletic member of our group of friends. He could ski, play baseball, tennis and bowled very well. When we went to the pool or Dale Hollow Lake, he would dive, from very high up. It always impressed me, I never had his nerve. I miss my Good Friend, part of me went with him. God Bless You Jeff.

Sorry for your loss

We lost a good man, way to early. Prayers for the family during this difficult time. Great memories will make all the difference in the tough days to come. Sorry for your loss.

Fay Crase, Armor USA

My little brother

I was still a kid when Jeff was born. He has always been like a little brother to me. I am stunned that he is gone. I will miss him every day for the rest of my life. For years, we have talked and texted several times a week, and visited when we could. Jeff and I had no secrets. In my life, he can’t be replaced. I loved him.

Condolences to the family

It was a shock to learn of Jeff’s sudden death. On Friday night I talked by phone with him for 48 minutes, mostly about all college basketball being canceled. We talked or texted quite often. Whenever I visited with my daughter’s family in Ft. Thomas, I always made arrangements to visit him, even if just to meet and eat. I will miss him. May God comfort you at this sad time.
Because of the restrictions on travel at this time, I will not attend the visitation. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sherri, Tony and I are so very sorry for your the loss of your brother. Praying for your parents and family. Thinking of you, Tony and Wanda Casey
