“Look at the stars, how they shine and glow, some of the stars died long ago. Still they shine in the evening skies for you to see, love like starlight never dies."  - Debi Gliori



With broken hearts, we announce Jeff’s passing. Survived by Jennifer, his beloved wife and best friend of 35 years and his adoring children: Mallory (Matt Summerfield), Jacob and Olivia. 

Cherished brother and brother-in-law of Judy and Wayne Kiffman, Jim and Kathy Denomy, John and Carol Denomy, Janet and Rob Ruetz, Kim and Jim Hesser, Michael Jeffery and Janice Fraser and Susan and David Glousher. 

A caring and cherished son-in-law to Norma Jeffery of Goderich: a gentle and attentive uncle to his nieces and nephews, and a wonderful neighbour and friend.

Predeceased by his parents, Jean and Gerry Denomy, and father-in-law, Harold Jeffery.

Jeff, a gifted carpenter, was generous with his time and talents. He was a natural athlete, loved sports and never missed his monthly poker nights. Everyone benefited from the many remarkable qualities inherent to his character: selflessness, passion, kindness, humour and unparalleled work ethic.

Jeff touched the lives of many, but his greatest source of love and pride was, most definitely, his family. Home was where his heart was.

A private family Gathering will be held at Westview Funeral Chapel.

Raye & Dianne ArmstrongJennifer and family, our deepest sympathy to you and your entire family.
Margot and Phil BrownIt was the early 70s on the corner of South and Raglan. We knew each other but not yet friends. We talked for a few minutes about school but I instantly knew we were going to be friends. I’m sure all of you have a similar story. I remember ripping his new shirt playing football in his backyard, in the house for a change but he told me years later that Jean told him to get back out there and rip my shirt back. I remember teasing him for dating a certain girl (the first time Jeff and Jennifer dated, yes there was a round one and a round two). I remember him hitting me with a golf shot on number 8 at the sunset. He laughed. I remember all the stupid stuff we did together. I remember his laugh. Hold Jeff close, as we do, in your hearts. A truly great guy.
The Evans FamilyWe are so sad at your loss. Jeff was a great guy who was always kind and thoughtful of others. Jeff was my Mom’s long time neighbour. He was like a son always looking after her. We really appreciated that. Once again we are so heartbroken at your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. The Evans Family
Larry DaerJennifer and Family- sorry for loss. Jeff was a good guy. I played poker with Jeff and the boys on numerous occasions in the good old days in Goderich and more recently a few Friday nights. Jeff liked to golf and I enjoyed our outing which always included betting of some sort. Maybe a few beers after. Not sure what else to say other than Jeff you will be missed!
Melaney and Dave PrevettJennifer, Olivia, Jacob and Mallory, our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you at this difficult time. We have enjoyed time spent with you during your visits to Goderich. Jeff will surely be missed. Mel and Dave
Arend NoordhofDear Jennifer and family, words can't express how sorry I am for your loss. Jeff and I were co-workers for ten plus years and became not only co-workers but friends. We spent many hours over the years pulling and cleaning sewer pumps in the middle of the night or on weekends in adverse weather conditions and Jeff never complained and just said this is what we do. Outside of work we attended many golf tournaments and he always out drove and beat me and smiled and would say "and that's not my best" He will be missed by many that knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with you in the days that lie ahead.
Rose Marie FinlayJennifer and family. I am sorry to hear of your devastating loss. My prayers, love and thoughts are with you at this extremely sad time.
