      Sincerest condolences to Miller and Price families. Jeff and I shared many found memories over the years. I first met Jeff when his father Corne started the Jr. bowling league at the Sports Bowl on Copeland Avenue. His father also gave me my first job at age 12 and I was fortunate working there till age 19. Jr. Bowling cemented a strong bond of myself and the Miller family which still exist to this day. Our Memorable times include, Vegas, Badgers,Oktoberfest, Canada,Parades ,Family and Friends. Sympathy to Heather and Miller Family.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Jeff and I first became friends at Lincoln Jr High. Even though we didn’t see each other much the last several years I have great everlasting memories of Jeff; our long weekend in Madison shortly after graduation , our weekend get togethers and of course the Badger football games.

    Sue and Heather, so very sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. Many memories going back to my childhood – bowling and deer hunting stories, the friendship Dad and Mom had with the Miller family.

    Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the memorial service. I will be thinking of you during this difficult time.

    Our deepest sympathy,
    Kim (Thompson) and Steve Yancey
