Jeff set out on a new adventure, February 15, 2018 from Clearwater Florida. Such was his sense of humor as he battled colon cancer with strength and dignity.

Born in Tacoma, Washington February 1, 1967 and graduating from Decatur High School, Jeff then joined the Army. He loved all things Army. As well, he was a chef extraordinaire, skilled salesman, and stand up comedian. He loved his music, especially heavy metal and playing his guitar. A lover of books, the bible was one he would often read. His faith gave him the courage to face his illness. During his illness he became a prolific builder of museum quality military dioramas, many of which are on display at The Veterans Art Center of Tampa Bay.

Jeff is survived by former wife Andrea, and son Zachary, who is a gift to us, mother Judy (David) McLean, uncle Joe (Karen) Justice, aunt Rose (Mike) Moor, aunt Nancy (Steve Younger) Justice.

Predeceased by his father, Fred Keller, grandparents Rose and Fred Keller, and grandparents Lucille and Mack Justice.

Forever young in our hearts, Neverland awaits. “Second star to the right, and straight on till morning!”

Military service with honors at Bay Pines National Cemetery, St Petersburg, Fl., Tuesday April 3, 2018, 1:30 p.m.
