  • I am so saddened to hear of Jeff’s passing. We worked together in the restaurant business for many years before I moved to Columbus. He taught me well – he was one of the best! We were good friends at work and outside of work. I fondly remember the beautiful Christmas tree. And who could forget the pot-bellied pig?
    All of Jeff’s family – you have my deepest sympathy.

  • To All of Jeff’s Family,
    My Aunt and I wanted to let you know that you are in out thoughts and prayers. I have known Jeff since High School and he will be missed by many people. My Aunt enjoyed seeing him when he was working as a server and would always tell me when see would see him. Jeff always had a great smile and a big heart.
    With Sympathy,
    Phil Riddlebaugh and Pat Riddlebaugh

  • Jeff was my cousin from my biological fathers side, Paul. Although I have not seen him in years and years, the memories are still solid. His good looks and fun disposition are embed in my memories. Him and Scott always made me laugh as a kid and Aunt Phyllis would try to be stern but laugh along with us. We would spend time at Grandma and Grandpa Fischers house with Jeff and Scott and eat her grilled cheese sandwiches and all the great food she made and joke around at the table. RIP my cousin Jeff and let your spirit fly free and may you find peace within. Love to all, Dawn (Fischer-Reich) Ivey. 3-10-2015
