    I was truly saddened by the news of Jeff’s passing. He was a big supporter of the Class of 1960 and
    he also loved the game of basketball. He will be missed.

    Jeff was a senior at Royal Roads and RMC who provided guidance and mentoring through the initial years at college. He is remembered.
    Sincere condolences, and wishes for comfort and peace, to family, classmates and all whose lives were touched by Jeff.
    Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
    “We will remember them.”

    Remi and I were room mates at CMR in first year. We struggled to communicate due to language difficulties, but became good friends. We split when I went on to RMC, but came together again at the Basic Medical Officers Course at Borden – both now doctors – and neither with any inkling that the other guy had been interested in medicine.
    He was an excellent physician, officer and friend.

    Sad news. Jeff was a guy who cut a wide swath both at college and from hearsay, in his years after. His Vancouver connections were designing.. and installing?? snow making equipment on at least one of our local mountains.
    As well, Jeff generously donated airline points and dollars(?) to assist Father Bob Haggerty, retired priest in Lillooet, BC, to return to Kingston for our 5 and 10 year reunions.
