  2. I remember Jeff as one of those people who would always try his best to help others get their projects done, as an equipment coordinator he was first rate! He enjoyed life and work, keeping busy was not a problem for Jeff. I’m very sorry for your loss.

  5. Carol and Family,

    On behalf of Jana and myself, please accept our profound sympathies on Jeff’s sudden passing. I had the great pleasure of enjoying Jeff’s company for the last 25 years at O’Connor Associates, where he distinguished himself as a dedicated technologist who was always ready to help others, no matter the task nor the weather. His impish grin and pleasant demeanour always brought a smile to my face, and made me value Jeff as the go-to guy when some strange task had to be carried out.

    He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

    It is with sadness that we heard about the death of Jeff from heart problems. It is particularly sad when children die before their parents. Our hearts go out to Don and Zella, and to Jeff’s wife. We send our sincere condolences to all the family for their loss of a cherished family member. It is too soon to die. With love, Deborah and Douglas Rix

  12. Jeff was my cousin and only a few years older than me. When we lived out west I always enjoyed the trips to the farm where he and his brother David always made me feel like one of the family. In particular I remember him taking me snowmobiling and at the age of seven or eight, actually letting me drive the thing by myself. Coincidentally I found myself working again for one year in Calgary when David passed away and I became re-aquinted with the family and Jeff. It struck me how he really had not seemed to change in appearance or outlook. Instantly we became freinds again and in the short time I had before I had to head out east, we had some very good times at his home. Although it has been about twenty years since I last saw him, I was struck again how instantly I recognized him from the picture and was so sad he left us so young. I will remember him fondly.
