|Let the memory of Jeffrey be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Jeffrey Gregg Call.
Jeffrey passed away suddenly on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at his residence in Albany, NY. Born and raised in Suffern, NY on July 29, 1968, he was the son of Raymond H. Call and Joyce Ann Burwash. He is survived by parents Raymond and Joyce Call, Punta Gorda, FL; sister Claudia (Robert) Castro of Coral Springs, FL; Brother Eric (Lauren) Call of Guilderland, NY; nieces Lily and Amelia Call, Hannah and Paulina Castro; nephew Aren Castro; and numerous friends and family.
Jeff will always be remembered as a friendly and happy guy, and as ”lovable, huggable Uncle Jeff”. He enjoyed snow skiing as well as fishing and boating at the family’s Adirondack camp. He will be terribly missed by the many people whose lives he touched.
Joyce Ann Call joined Jeff in heaven on May 4th, 2015, after a long battle with Parkinsons Disease. She is now at peace with her youngest son, Jeff. We love and miss you both!
"Uncle Jeff, hey its Amelia. I miss you all the time. Your smile used to always make me smile. I always miss one of your bear hugs. I remember you used to come over on Christmas Eve and it was one of the best parts of the night. I love and miss you everyday.
"Jeff - "Forever missed" - how true! I miss you and Mom every day, and you both come into my dreams at night. Love you,
Two nights before you passed you called my home, my mother and I both talked to you for quite some time. When the end of our conversation grew near, I told you that skiing down a mountain side scared the crap out of me; you laughed and promised that one day you would teach me. You passed away before you could... but you made a promise, and in my eyes you kept it. A couple weeks later I had a dream that you and I were at the top of West mountain and you were giving me pointers and helping me learn. I woke up so happy and excited and sad, I knew you were gone in reality but you still made it a point to be in my life. And you still make it a point. Last night you came into my dreams again, this time you were aware that you were a spirit and so was I. My family was there but they couldn't see you, and they wanted to believe me when I told them that I did. You told me it's alright if not everyone can see me, what matters is that they know I'm here. I see you everywhere I look, I feel you always. And whether or not you answer, I love the conversations we share. I love seeing you and grandma walking down to the lake with grandpa. I love seeing you two sitting with him on the deck just taking in the sheer beauty that is in front of you. I loved seeing you hold my mom in your arms when she fell to her knees 6 years ago, even if that alone still breaks my heart. I love that even after you're gone you still refuse to leave your family and your friends. Overall, I love you. And even though it hurts me to never see your goofy smile or feel your warm hugs again. I know you're happy, and I know that wherever you may be that you're not alone. You have family with you, I belive that in its entirety is pure happiness."
I think about you often and the fun times we shared. This year is a little different because Dad joined you on December 24. Please watch over him and the rest of the family and give them big hugs from me. I'll be rooting for your Patriots in the super bowl this year.
"Thinking of you today Jeff. Miss having you around and you are in our thoughts and prayers daily. La"
"Jeff, I still think of you all the time. I know you are in a good place, but I miss having you around."
"Jeffrey, UD and AM are here to say happy birthday and thanks for many wonderful memories. Sure you and your mom are laughing away together."
"I think you and Mom all the time. I love knowing you're taking care of each other in heaven now."
"Happy Birthday Jeff. Miss you cuz.
"Happy Birthday little brother. You would've been 48 today. Miss you today and everyday.
"Jeff - Happy 48th birthday! Not a day goes by that I don't miss you and Mom.
Love and peace, Dad"
I can't believe it's been 5 years...the memories of my time with you on the lake are still fresh. Now you have grandma by your side to keep you company. Miss and love you always! <3"
I can't believe it's been 5 years. Thinking of you and Aunt Joyce with many great memories. I'll play some grateful dead today because I know you loved them.
"Hi Jeff, know you would have been excited with the recent storm. Perfect for skiing. Thinking of you and your mom together today. Miss and love you.
Uncle Dick and Aunt Margaret"
"Jeff, I find it hard to believe it's been 5 years since your passing. I think of you all the time. I know you are watching over us and now have Mom with you.
"Hey, Jeff - It has been five years, and I still miss you. Every day, I often think of you and Mom - fond memories. You both will be with me forever.
"Been thinking about you... we all are. Miss you and Mom both now. Take good care of each other. Love you."
"We always think of you on this your birthday as it was also my Mother's birthday. She would have been 102 today. She, too, left us at a very early age - 54 yrs. This year you now have your Mother with you and you both must be very happy about that! Rest in peace, both of you."
"Happy Birthday Jeff!! You are missed by many."
"Happy Birthday Uncle Jeff. You are missed more than ever but this year is a little different because now Grandma gets to celebrate it with you. The thought of you two reunited makes me smile and I am sure she is so happy to be with you. Give her a hug for me. I love you so much and think about you both everyday. Keep shining your lights over us and we will keep looking up. XOXO"
"Happy Birthday Jeff....think of you often, but find comfort in knowing you're with good company..."
"Remembering you today, with great memories, on your special day Jeff. Love, AM and UD"
Happy birthday. Thinking about you today and often. Miss you.
"Happy Birthday Jeff. Wish you were here but I know you have the best company in Heaven now. Miss you both xo Lauren"
"Happy Birthday Jeff,
I miss you always, but especially in the summer and at camp. I know you are a with us though. And so is Mom. Love you both.
"Jeff - Happy birthday!!! You would have been 47 years old today. I miss you, and now Mom, so very much.
Love always, Dad"
"This week you, Jeff, were reunited with your mother, Joyce Burwash Call.(died May 4, 2015) Your family misses her but we know you welcomed her in heaven. We will never forget our beloved family. Our God is good and we shall all receive HIs promise of everlasting life. This comforts us now."
"Uncle Jeff, I miss you so much and wish you were still here, even though you are in a better place. I love you so much <3
"Jeff, Aunt Margaret and I are remembering your wonderful spirit and jovial personality. We are so grateful for the beautiful memories that you are such a part of. We so miss our visits."
"Hi Jeff...missing you still. Thinking of you a lot lately. This time of year is especially tough for Eric. I know he misses having you here on football Sundays like old times. We know you are smiling where you are but wish you were here. La xo"
"Jeff, We think of you often with fond memories; loved your smile and your wit. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of your family members today. Sincerely, Mary & Chuck"
I think about you often and your memory makes me smile. I'll be rooting for your Patriots next Sunday.
"Dear Uncle Jeffery,
I miss you so much. You were always there to make me smile when I was sad. I love you and miss you so much. I just wanted you to know that.
I Love you. Amelia Call"
"I miss you brother. Not a day goes by without a thought of you. Your good friends and I spent last weekend at Gore Mt. honoring you. We shared many good stories and laughs.
You are missed."
"You are forever in our hearts and thoughts, today and every day. Just one wonderful memory away. Miss you and love you always!!!"
"Jeff - The pain of your sudden passing has diminished somewhat over the last four years, but memories of you will never wane. Today will be particularly hard for Mom and me. Miss you, son.
Love, Dad and Mom"
I just sent out an invitation to our friends for your 4th annual memorial ski weekend this coming January at Gore. We've had a great time in your memory the past 3 years and I look forward to doing it again. We spent many great hours on those slopes and you are always with us.
"Uncle Jeff, I love and miss you so much. Life is not the same without you. Happy birthday Uncle Jeff! I love you so much. <3"
"Hi Uncle Jeff. I miss you so much. Camp isn't the same without you. I was fishing this year one Saturday i was thinking of you the whole time.
love you to the moon and back. -Amelia <3"
"Thinking of you today Jeff. I was up in Killington on Sunday for a half marathon and was thinking about the time when you met my friend and I at one of the ski areas many years ago. That was a great day! Think of you often and miss you. Happy birthday cousin.
"Happy birthday Jeff, miss your smile and wonderful laugh.
AM and UD"
"Missing you... as always. Love you forever."
"Happy Birthday Uncle Jeff. I'm up at camp right now with my husband and boys and I really miss you more than ever.

You are in my heart forever & I'll cast a line from your spot today. I love you. - your oldest kiddo"

your oldest kiddo - Lina"
"We miss you Brother! I just shared a great weekend skiing and celebrating your life with some of you best friends. We all missed you, and shared a beer or two in your memory. I think about you all time."
"Having a dark brew and a cigar for you today Jeff. Wish you were here to share. Miss you brother."
"There's always something I see, hear, or feel that reminds me of you, Jeff. Miss you all the time, especially today"
"Hi Jeffrey...thinking of you today and remembering all the good times when you were here with us. Always missing you. La xoxo"

"No matter how much time passes, the gap that has been left with your passing will never be filled nor gets any smaller. We all miss you so much. This morning I thought about how lucky I am. Of all your nieces and nephew I had the most time with you. And I feel selfish for wishing I could have had more. You are still with us and your memory will always be in my heart. Love always, Kiddo :)"
"Jeff-ro my bro',

"I can't believe a year has passed. I think about you often-the many fond memories live on.in my heart. I will be rooting for your "Patriots" in the Super Bowl this year. Miss you cuz."

I think i will keep that one going in your honor. i think of you all the time, but I know your smiling down on us. i can feel it. <3 Love you always and forever. <3 - your oldest kiddo"
"I can't believe it's been a year. I think this site is a great way to remember Jeff forever. The pictures bring back so many memories of our wonderful childhood together!

"What a long year this has been. It's so hard not having you around. I think of you all the time. I miss you. Love you,"
"A Saranac I will hoist today in rememberance of you brother. I think you would like that. You are terribly missed and we all think and speak of you often - never forgotten, you'll be in our hearts forever. Fair winds and following seas..."
"It has been a year since you suddenly left us. We still have difficulty with the reality of your being gone forever, and the pain has eased somewhat with time. But, memories of you are still just as fresh, and will never dim. We sorely miss you!
Love, Dad and Mom"
"Time passes, memories will remain. Jeffrey, the tears that your family has shed will remain.
Gail~Mom To Angel Michael Miller~"
"Happy Birthday. Miss you Jeff."
"Boy, do I miss you! Your spirit is here at the lake, though. You are with us all the time. Happy Birthday Uncle Jeff. Love you!"
"How could we forget Jeff's birthday. Mary's mother would have been 98 years old today. Am sure all of Jeff's family and friends miss him very much, but he's probably looking down on you and smiling in his usual happy way."
"Jeff, we know you are happy where you are and know how much we all miss your "happy" face. Lily and Amelia especially miss you so much. You left your laughter, smiles, and kind words for us to remember always.
Love Mary and Larry"
"Miss you brother..."
"Happy Birthday Uncle Jeff!! WE MISS YOU So Much!!"
"I am sorry to hear this and deeply sad. Jeff was a great guy full of life and fun. He will truly be missed and in my prayers, may he rest in peace. Good-bye to my friend Jeff.
Brenda Collins DeMiceli"
"Skiing won't be the same without you my friend. We miss you. Belvedere Ski Club"
"I wish I had a chance to tell you how thankful I was to have you in my life. You were such a huge part of my childhood, the cute next door neighbor I had a crush on for yrs..the guy who introduced me to the Dead..took me out on the lake..told me my boyfriends were losers(you were usually right)..you turned into the big brother i always wanted.I am going to miss you so much,i will NEVER forget you"
"Although I never met you, I cannot imagine that you are much different than your sister, Claudia. I too lost a brother and find he is always present in my life. I pray Claudia and your family find strength in that presence as I know I do. May you be watching and protecting from above. God bless."
"I know that you have given your family happy memories to hold onto until you meet again. I have been blessed to know your sister, Claudia, and know that you have touched the world for the better! We can all aspire to do the same."
"May you be enveloped in comfort knowing that Jeff rests in peace. May memories warm your hearts today, at the family lakeside camp, and forever as you recall and share tales in celebration of Jeff's life. Jeff makes me smile--love his Mets cap.
With God's blessings..."
"Jeff you are such a big part of my childhood memories. We all had so much fun together growing up in Sloatsburg.It was nice to reminisce about those days when I saw you a few years ago. I will cherish that forever. Keep smiling my friend. love and miss you!!"
"I will cherish the childhood memories that were created with my friend that lived next door. Jeff will always be remembered as someone who always had a smile, loved to laugh and made those around him enjoy themselves as well. My deepest sympathy is with Mr. & Mrs. Call, Claudia, Eric and their families."
I will always remember the little guy next door who could keep up with the bigger kids running along Ann Place and playing in the "woods" behind our houses. You will always be part of my childhood memories growing up in Sloatsburg. My deepest sympathies are with Mr. and Mrs. Call, Eric, Claudia and the entire family."
"Chuck and I were very sad to learn about Jeff's passing, but we are sure the good Lord has important plans for him in heaven. Our hearts go out to Ray, Joyce, Claudia and Robert and their family and Eric and Lauren and their girls. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers during this very sad time. We will be seeing you all at his memorial service this summer."
"Jeff, you are without a doubt the "sparkle" personality of all family gatherings. We shall cherish the memories of our get togethers and celebrations. You are a "Star".
With love, Uncle Dick and Aunt Margaret"
"So sorry to hear about Jeff's passing. That freckled face smile of a young child is forever embedded in my memories"
"Hey Jeff I remember a couple of years ago when you and your Dad and I were sitting at the bar in George's Restaurant buying rounds of beers and after the third round you decided to call your dad "Raymundo". Ever since then whenever I call or meet up with your dad I always say "Hey Raymondo". I miss you - Richard Toneatti"
"Larry and Mary Allen
We will always remember you and will miss your friendly happy ways and smile. You will truly be missed Jeff."
"Childhood summers on "Heavenly Lake Hadlock" with the Calls. Great times with unforgetable memories. Swimming, water skiing, fishing and everything kids could get into. Jeff made summer a blast! You will be missed and forever in our memories."
"Even though I was never fortunate enough to meet you I am sure you would have opened your arms out and given me a big welcome hug just like the other member's of your family. May you rest in peace in the arms of the Savior and know that you will never be forgotten!"
"Cheers, Cousin! I'm not sure what family memories the Chiappe family would have without the Call cousins. There'd certainly be a bunch of missing 35mm slides of five kids (wearing an unfortunate number of matching polyester outfits) having the times of their lives in upstate New York. I'll never forget your smile, infectious happiness and ability to make every moment a fun time, Jeff."
"Jeff, that sweet little boy with the adorable smile, I called you Mikey from the TV commercials. That’s how I will always remember you, sweet and kind. My fondest memories of childhood were spent with your family. I will never forget the lake house and the fun we had as kids. My heart goes out to the Call family; you are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you Jeff."
"Jeff, Saranac Black-and-Tan on the porch will just not ever-ever taste the same. I can't even begin to describe the chasm that ripped my heart when I heard the terrible news. Your bright eyes and infectous laughter is a memory that I will forever cherish. Thanks for letting me be a little part of your life. Fair winds and following seas brother...
PS: Do they have summer corn in heaven?"
"So sorry to hear about Jeff. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. May he rest in peace.
Thoughts and Prayers
Patty Regan Krummenacker"
"Uncle Jeff, Amelia and I will miss fishing with you this summer. Life will not be the same with out you. We will miss you soooo much and we will miss you at our Sunday dinners.
Thanks for coming to my violin concerts and thanks for bringing us donuts at camp. You are the best! I know you are in a better place.
We love you <3 Lily and Amelia"
We have many fond memories of course, but those that we think of most often are of the many lunches we had at Applebee's. You and I would order buffalo wings that were so hot that we could hardly eat them-yet we would order them every time. After we were done, we would go get your "strawberry" ice cream.
We miss you Jeff.
Cousin Kari and Uncle Jay & Aunt Shirley"
"Dear Uncle Jeff,
Thank you for all the good times, all the hugs, all the love, all the laughter and ALL of the tube flipping! :) You're the best Uncle Jeff a kid could ever hope for. We miss ya, and two things I miss the most are the awesome hugs and you ALWAYS calling me "kiddo". I love you with every last bit of my heart... and I allways will.
Love Your Kiddo,
Hannah :) XOXOX"
""Uncle" Jeff, I knew you for one week, but your personality has left a mark on me that will last years to come. I'm glad I had the honor."
"Some of my best childhood memories include Jeff. Spending the day on the lake skiing, tubing or playing "king of the float." I will always cherish those memories. You will be missed terribly Jeff."
"Hey Uncle Jeff, I miss you man. Everybody does, its kind of sureal right now. Just know we are thinking about you all the time, and I will always keep you in my thoughts. I love you and I know youre happy and at peace.
"My baby brother Jeff... this is for you, our family, and friends. A place for us all to share the wonderful memories, stories, and joys of your life. We will never ever forget you!"
Have a suggestion for us?
