Jeff was an active member of the Sunbury, Ohio community for 31 years. He served for 30 years on the B.S.T.&G. Fire Department, starting as a volunteer Fire Fighter and retiring on January 31, 2018 after serving 6 years as Chief. He was a member of the Sunbury United Methodist Church, and he found one of his greatest passions in helping with the annual Youth Work Mission Trip.
