Jeffrey C. Gaddis
September 01, 1964 ‒ September 11, 2019
Jeffrey C. Gaddis, age 55, of Fredericktown passed away on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 with his loving family by his side.
He was born on September 1, 1964 in Mansfield, Ohio to Harmon and Carole Gaddis. Jeff was a past member of the Knox County 4-H and FFA. He was formerly employed at T.R.W. and FT Precision and was a member of the Palmyra Church of Christ.
Jeff was really well known for his love of cattle and was considered by many as an expert. Getting advice from Jeff was considered a wise move when it came to raising cattle and Jeff was always willing to help.
The way he died is just like he lived; he wrote his own rules, he fought authority and he paved his own way. And if you said he couldn’t do it, he would make sure he could. He was a rare combination of someone who had a love of life and a firm understanding of what was important.
Jeff is survived by his wife Cheryl (Howell) Gaddis; his daughters, Jessica (Dereck) Nauman, Anna (Corey) DeGirolamo; his grandchild Hudson Nauman; his father Harmon (Rita) Gaddis; his brother Brent (Bonnie) Gaddis; and his canine companion Sig.
Jeff was preceded in death by his mother Carole (Roberts) Gaddis.
Friends may call on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 from 2-5PM at the Palmyra Church of Christ. A service will follow, beginning at 5PM, with Evangelist Troy Northrop officiating.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to: Heartland Hospice, 6500 Busch Blvd., Columbus, Ohio 43229. (or) Ohio Cattleman’s Assoc., 10600 U.S. Highway 42, Marysville, Ohio 43040.
