  • I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your husband, Thank you for always helping me with my pets. My sincere condolences. - Posted by: Penny (Friend) on: Aug 25, 2022

  • From the late 80s to the mid 90s I worked with Jeff as partners for almost five years, first downtown and then out of the Fort Garry station. What I most admired about him were his leadership skills, work ethic, sense of justice and also his sense of humor. What I appreciated the most was his friendship. To say working with Jeff had an influence on me for the rest of my career would be an understatement. My wife and I send our sincere condolences to Scarlett and the rest of Jeff's family and all who loved him. He was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Rest easy Jeffrey.

  • My condolences to the family on Jeff's passing. I remember him (and the others 'kids' too as they roamed the halls of SJCI.) - Posted by: Mr. D (Teacher) on: Jul 09, 2022

  • Jeff was a good friend and my partner in the drug unit of the Winnipeg Police. I have a saying that I refer to often “Police brotherhood is not a right, it is an honour earned by few”...... Jeff earned that !!! He was a tenacious drug investigator and had a work ethnic second to no one. I have many fond memories with Jeff as his friend and coworker. . some can be told and some can’t. An inspector in the drug unit at the time gave us a nickname.... “Rogue crew”.... not sure what his reason was for the nickname but Jeff and I embraced it.... Thanks for all the great memories Jeff..... Rest In Peace .... - Posted by: Dave Lysyk (Friend ) on: Jul 09, 2022
