Jeff will be remembered for his love of the outdoors. He was an avid fox trapper and enjoyed visiting his family cabin in Potter County where he would enjoy spending time in nature and taking in the views. He was a member of the National and Pennsylvania Trappers Association. He also enjoyed collecting antique Lititz and trapping memorabilia. He was also quite competitive and was always up for a good board game or hand of cards.
The competitive nature in him also made him an avid sports fan. You could always find him cheering for the local teams including, Warwick football and wrestling teams, as well as Penn State Football. He also enjoyed the Dallas Cowboys and St. Louis Cardinals. Jeff treasured the time he could spend with others watching and conversing about sports.
Jeff was a graduate of Warwick High School, Class of '68, and a faithful member of Grace Church, Lititz, for 34 years.
He will also be fondly remembered for his dedicated years of working in the Lititz Community. He spent more than 35 years working alongside his brother Dennis, at Leeking Plumbing of Lititz.
