I'll never forget the morning Jeff died. I grew up spending a lot of time at the English home since Janet,Jeff and I grew up going to church and school together and I lived just down the street. I had gotten off night shift at the hospital and was in the snack bar when I was told he had been killed in an accident that morning. I rushed to his

mother/grandmother's home and no one was there but his grandma, and she was talking about trying to get Jeff on the phone because he had her vaccum cleaner,but he was'"dead asleep" and not answering. I was there with her at least an hour or two just "visiting" before his mom and sister got there. It doesn't seem right that someone could do 2 tour of duties in Viet Nam and then come home and get killed on an icy road.He always treated me well.

Jeff was probably my best friend growing up in the north end of Newark. I'll never forget the phone call from my father telling me about Jeff. I was pretty stunned to say the least. He was a good friend and a lot of fun to hang around with. Many good memories of Jeff, George Goumas, Haycook, Snelling, Gary Berry, and a bunch of others we all hung around with.
