I never got to thank you for all you did for my Cathy and I that you did for me when we lost your brother Jack. I miss not being able to talk to you on Sunday asking you questions and talking in general. Jack had said that you would always be there to help me and he was right. I miss you,

"Dear Cathy,
As hard as the last couple of years have been, I hope that later you will come to look back on this time thankfully for the opportunity to have forged an even stronger and more loving relationship with Jeff. I've admired you both so much, Jeff for his unrelenting determination to fight this battle and you for being a role model extraordinaire of a loving wife fulfilling her marriage vows (in sickness and in health) through the most trying of circumstances. My thoughts remain with you and your girls.
Carol"

"Jeff was a special person in my life.  We did not see each often or talked daily but we had something in our heart  for each other that will always stay with me.  I never heard him say bad things about anyone, he seems to look through the bad and find something good. I told him everything I am saying here and more while he was alive. I prayed for Jeff daily and asked God to make him strong I text him often and call him when I could and my message was not to give up keep.  
At the TRIS 2012 past president picnic Jeff told me when I arrived  Mr Bear called and said he was not felling well and might not come today and I said to Jeff you should go home to. He said I will be OK Johnny I don't want to leave you here by your self even though he knew 85 to 90 people would be there. He was a sick man and was concerned about me being there without Mr Bear because the three of us allways support one another. I believe everyone who knew Jeff feel as I do.
I thank God for letting him be my friend for many years
and I asked for continue blessings for his family."

This tribute was added by Bobye List on 13th May 2014

"Dear Cathy, Danielle and Melissa,
I remember visiting you all about 15 years ago and feeling so welcomed in your home - my first visit. No wonder Sandy loves you all so much. And I feel like I know Jeff through all the times I have seen Cathy in NJ. And lets not forget meeting you all near Times Square for lunch when you came east for a family trip.
I so admire Jeff and the father, husband, friend that he was to all. Having 200 people attend his service is a true testimony to his love of life and people around him. I am so touched with hearing about your spending time at the beach, after the service, just talking about Jeff, watching the waves and celebrating his life. You three are honoring him in the most wonderful ways - and I believe he knows it. He will always be with you. Sending much love and sympathy and fond thoughts always of Jeff,
Bobye"

"Jeff was not only a great boss to work for but a great friend as well. He was like a fun loving older brother, who would share his wisdom, experience, and advise with you and then wrap his arm around your neck to give you, the "Old Rub a Dub! Loved getting together with him when he wanted to give someone a hard time, C'mon Rob let's go Bust their Chops! All in fun of course. Probably what made him the great person that he was and why everyone liked working for this man, because he honestly cared for his people! Big shoes to fill Jeff, but I will do my best, after all it was you who taught me....Love You and Miss You...."

"Cathy-
I had the pleasure of working with Jeff on two challenging projects at the GSD plant over the past 30 years. Jeff was always inquisitive and understanding of our archaeological objectives, though they weren't related to the plant's engineering and his expertise.  We rarely had a chance to talk about family, but it is easy for me to realize what a wonderful husband and father he was.  My heartfelt sympathy- Jeff was one of those very special characters in our lives.

"A sincerely good man is gone and the industry has lost a true champion.  Over the decades I've known Jeff, he was Always uplifting, encouraging and ever challanging you to to your best ever. His wry smile could melt an iceberg. His contributions to the water industry have created standards that will long be followed. Along with countless others, I am lucky and honored to have known Jeff and to have learned from his giving attitude and example. Thank you Jeff. RIP"

Everytime I came out to California, we always toke a walk at the Harbour at night by ourselves, it was our thing, I will miss that when I come out. We had lots off fun times at his family's shore house in Silverton, Jeff loved the way I ate crabs, shells & all he loved to tell that story. I will miss you. Love Alicia"
