  1. As an employee at Ford Motor Credit Co. I spent alot of time on the phone with Jeff and as the yrs went on I got to know him personally. We had some fun times when he worked at Crestwood Ford, he always came to our parties and was just a nice guy to work with. I,m sorry for your loss. I will always remember the .Wink..

  2. I cannot believe Jeff is gone from this Earth.I will pray to God for his eternal salvation. I knew Jeff when he was 16 and I was 20–we worked together. He sold me the TransAm he bought because I fell in LOVE with that car. I kept it for nearly 23 years. The collector I sold it to, said he called Jeff, who was amazed I had kept .his. car so long. HE was an amazing young man and it was a privilege to know him…God bless all of his family!!

  3. I worked with Jeff at Crestwood Ford for 5+ years. We shared many laughs! Wink will be missed! My condolences to Jeffs family and friends. I will pray for Jeff.
