The last time I remember seeing and talking with Jeff was probably at the Feast of Tabernacles in Eugene, about 1984. We were at a roller skating rink for a family activity. When he was pastoring in Boise, idaho and a couple of eastern Oregon congregations, he said he hoped Pasadena would "forget about him", implying he wanted to stay serving in that area indefinitely. I knew him as a humble and dedicated servant. God's blessings of peace and comfort to his family.
