Jan. 15, 1947 ~ June 16, 2006
It is with a profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Jeff.
He has left behind so many who cherished him; His wife Kelly, sons Josh and Chris, daughter-in-law Jill, brother Bruce, sister-in-law Lora, sister-in-law Reagan, brother-in-law Alvarez, father-in-law Brian, grandchildren Shelby and Ben, nephew Steve, nieces Noel and billie and friends too numerous to count.
Jeff was born in Palo Alto, California before immigrating to Canada in the late 60’s as a conscientious objector of the Viet Nam War.
He loved Canada and the freedom that it stands for, and eagerly became a citizen at his first opportunity. Jeff actively participated in life. He loved the outdoors with a reverence. As a young boy he spent every summer with his parents and brother fishing, hiking and camping in the High Sierras’ There was nothing Jeff loved more than a road trip with his two boys where they could explore and learn about our beautiful province and maybe catch a few lunkers along the way. He was so proud of his sons and the men that they have become and he lives on in their likeness, gestures and words.
Jeff was a successful businessman in the community, owning and operating Oak Tree Furniture for over fifteen years. He was a fabulous musician and his reputation as a fine keyboardist was well known in this area. His other passion was coaching Timberline High School football. He loved the game and brought to his coaching the same commitment of excellence that he brought to every endeavour he embraced.
Jeff was an exceptional man with a fine mind who loved to analyse and look at the big picture in life. And he got it. He just got it. He believed heaven was here on earth and if you don’t enjoy your time now you just might miss it. We will all miss him in ways we can’t even begin to imagine.
A Celebration of Jeff’s Life will be held at the Willow Point Hall on July 22nd. Drop in anytime from 4:00p.m. to 12:00a.m. Bring your instruments and your stories. In lieu of flowers please feel free to make a donation to Timberline Football for the Jeff Cammack Scholarship.
