Jeff and I shared many positive experiences and happy times in our work together. The memories of which always bring a smile to my face.

I had the great pleasure of working with Jeff on many occasions. He was one of the most kind, considerate people you could meet and a true gentleman. Although we worked hard we had great fun too, we had many laughs over the years and I’m glad that Jeff took advantage of some of the wonderful places we worked, Portugal and Italy, to take his family. I feel that I know his family as he spoke so often about them, he was so proud of their achievements. He will be missed.

It is with much sadness that I say goodbye to a family friend of many years. No one could wish for a better friend, Jeff was enthusiastic in all that he did and approached everything with a sense of humour. He was a caring man who would always be there to support and listen to others. Among his many interests Jeff was a talented artist and I have fond memories of the years spent with him at Birstall Art Society. I remember many happy times together with Jeff and Jenny over the years which I hope will bring a smile in time to come.
Sincere condolences to Jenny Richard and Helen.
Rest in Peace my friend.

Caring, passionate, positive and witty are just a few words to describe Jeff.
The Taylors in Australia will miss seeing you and your cheeky grin.
Our catch up's were few but always fun..
Sincere condolences to Jenny, Richard and Helen

Lots of lovely memories of happy times together as families as far back as I can remember. Thanks for always being interested in catching up with our lives and all the sincere conversations we had over the years, for me right from being a young child and for Joe, Grace, Eve and May as the family grew. You are a true gentleman and I will always remember you for your kindness.
Rest in peace Uncle Jeff.
Sally, Joe, Grace, Eve and May
