    So sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. He was passionate about building, and his carpentry projects.

    Jeff was a reliable part of the fabric of the Outer Banks for a long time, and will be remembered as a really good guy.

    Many will miss not having him around. My thoughts and prayers extend to his family, and those who shared his life.
