No way, I can't believe this. I was just talking to him Friday night at Johnny G's w/Klicki. How incredibly sad.
Do you know the cause or what happened Steve?

My thoughts and prayers are with family and friends of Jeff.

Saw it here online and in the Macomb Daily today.

I just met Jeff this past winter at Steve's Bar and we had the chance to tip a few together. He invited me into his home and we were actually discussing going into business together with Stalker Lures.

We had so much in common with our love of fishing and music (the group Yes is our favorite band).

I will miss him dearly and am still kicking myself for not calling him Friday afternoon. I will regret that forever.

My deepest condolences for his family and friends, especially Pam, Dave and Steve.....

I know there are few pictures of him from a TNT's night.....the night he reeked of gasoline after he ran out.....

Jeff was a super nice very sincere and genuine guy. Cannot say I knew him that well but have had the pleasure to be around him 3 or 4 times. All I can say is that it's really nice to be around people who you know have no agenda and are just there to have a good time and bring a little joy to those around them. This is a damn shame Dave and I really sincerely hope things get better. My condolences to you and your entire family.
