Debbie & Eldon and family. I ran into Jeff periodically in Aberdeen and he always said Hello and we would talk about the last time we were in Roslyn. He was always happy and enjoyed life, he loved to stop by the casino in Ken's parking lot and talk with the ladies. He truly had a caring and loving spirit. My thoughts and prayers are with you .

My memories of Jeffrey are many. I played pee wee and midget baseball with Roslyn when I was a kid, Jeff was always there to watch the games and to visit with the parents. I grew up on a small dairy farm, Jeff would often times ride along in the milk truck to the local farms and assisted the driver, Mr. Snaza . While living in Aberdeen, Jeff was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran and we would see each other at church, both the old and new buildings. Jeffrey and I enjoyed a stock car race or two at the local track and took in some of the NSU basketball games, including the game when Don Meyer hit 800 wins and again when he broke the record of 904. No matter the place or the event, many people knew Jeff and greeted him with a hardy handshake. Eldon and Debbie, please know that Jeffrey was well known in Aberdeen. Scott Hagen.

Debbie, You know how really special your brother was.....With Alan as my special brother, these two were best buddies for many years. Jeff and I shared the same birthday..he always remembered that. I got to know Jeff and your family when he and Alan attended Roslyn school together when they were little boys. I am sure in our heavenly home, that Jeff and Alan have renewed their friendship, as if it were just seconds later...The Lord shares mercy and grace to all who believe. You know our brothers will be on that front line! Hugs and wonderful memories....Joyce Anderson Nokleby

So sorry to hear about the loss of Jeff. We spent time together in Aberdeen. He would come and visit me at the police department and would, on many occasions, sit with me while having supper. I will always remember his smile and laugh. Jeff was always happy and positive. I missed him. Thoughts and prayers for his family.

I am Gary Myhre and I am a retired police officer from Aberdeen as. Jeff used to come down to the pd and ride with me. He always loved to go to coffee with myself or Kent Karlen. Then just last winter he used to come down to the Red Rooster and listen to us play music. Were going to miss him. Our condolences to your family.

It is a time you knew would come....To have someone in your life like Jeffrey had to be so special. He loved life and I think he loved his own life. He was always interested in people and especially if he knew he was related to them. He knew his family and friends cared deeply for him. You should be so proud of him. He was a very special person and I will miss him!!!
