In addition to his father, Jeff was also preceded in death by one sister, Lisa Graves.
Jeff, a true meaning of a friend to all, he always had a smile, a joke or a shoulder to lean on. He had a grand love for his family, especially for his grandchildren. He always had time to take them fishing, to the creek to hunt crawdad’s or just be with them. Each of them made his eyes sparkle and each held a very dear and special place in his heart. He enjoyed hunting, golfing, watching the St. Louis Cardinals and relaxing with a western book. Jeff had a great love for his God and enjoyed Church and his Church family. The people of this community were a true love for him. Jeff had served on the Potosi City Council as an Alderman and then as the City of Potosi Building Commissioner. At times it would seem Jeff always had the best interest and welfare of others before himself.
Jeff was a true family man, community leader and friend who will be deeply missed by all those who knew him and had ever meet him on the street. Always a smile, Always a wave he would give.

Jeff and I have not talked for years but many times I have thought of trying to find him and renew our friendship. We were inseparable during high school and after. One of the very few real true friends I ever had.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Darlene. And the rest of the family.
