Peacefully surrounded by his family, Jeff, in his 65th year passed away at the Juravinski Hospital. Beloved husband of Patricia, father of Heather and Sherri (Dan). Adored Grandpa to Charlotte. Brother to Randy, Gloria, Mark (Cathi), Paul (Marianne), and Sandra (Scott) Pickard. Predeceased by brother Larry (Lorna) and his parents Ted & Yvonne Keene. Also survived by his Aunt Sandy (Mitchell), several nieces, nephews, cousins, and life-long friends.
Jeff was a mentor, protector, and companion. He was full of life and had a wicked sense of humour; he was an amazing cook, handyman and baby whisperer. We will so miss that infectious laugh that would put a room in stitches just listening to him. He had a great love for all things Christmas, music, the Toronto Blue Jays, and lounging in the backyard by his pool with the dogs he said he never wanted.
The family is forever grateful to Paul Keene for donating his stem cells and to Dr. Trus, the nurses, and staff at Juravinski Hospital for their wonderful care and compassion.
A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at a later date. Friends are invited to join us for a Celebration of Life taking place at DENNIS TOLL FUNERAL HOME: Charing Cross Reception Suites, 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford on Saturday, February 22nd, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre or a charity of your choice would be appreciated. www.hamiltonhealthsciences.ca/about-us/ways-to-give/
