Memories Timeline


  1. More than 50 years since our mutual obsession with bowling, tennis, pool, golf, drinking and smoking began. Thankfully, we outgrew some of those, hehe.. Also, enjoyed cruising in the VW Beetle, and operating the rides at Olympic Park with Jeff… Sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to Kris and the kinfolks!!!

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Andrew, Cheryl, Nicole & Aidan

  3. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss of Jeff. I was his secretary at Kodak and have many wonderful memories of his wit, smile, and his positive attitude. Rest in peace, my friend. ❤️
