Jeff and I met when we were 19 and became instant friends. It was a friendship that lasted 30 years we had a lot of fun, and got into a little trouble along the way!

The fun included, a lot of hunting, many fishing trips to the river, he came down to Omaha many times to golf after we moved there. And just talking about our young kids.

I have to mention a trip he and I took to Phoenix to golf around 1999. We Stayed with my parents(they loved Jeff btw) who were snowbirds at the time. My mom was insistent that Jeff and I take oranges from their tree and literally stuffed as many as we could into our luggage.
When we arrived in Omaha, and got to baggage claim, we were pretty much the last two waiting for our bags. I said I will go find someone and as I started to walk away, Jeff yelled “Pat-think they are coming”, and I turned around to see loose oranges come tumbling down the baggage conveyor, then came out our bags. Jeff and I could not stop laughing about that one for awhile.

Jeff truly loved his family-it was always his priority as it should be, and he was dam proud of it!

RIP old friend!

I was shocked to hear about Jeff passing away. I've only known him for about 8 years, yet I felt as if I'd known him for most of my life. He always had a good attitude, and would tell me stories of projects he was working on at his farm. He'll definitely be missed by many.

I had the pleasure of being Koos's golf partner for many years. Lots of memories, he seemed to toe the driver every time as he blew it past you. He finally caught a wedge on the screws as he chipped in from about 150 yards for an eagle darn nice shot Koos, the trips to Omaha, and a variety of other adventures. The price is right battles we had at the range as he turned all the equipment on for me, on the days we were closed. It was always fun when "The Koos" was around!! I'm gonna miss my large sloping forheaded buddy. With a tear in my eye Rest In Peace my friend until we meet again. CHEERS
