Jeff was my best friend in 6th and 7th grade.  He was funny and adventurous.  I remember taking the train to San Francisco and running wild all over Chinatown, going to battle of the bands in San Mateo, skateboarding barefoot down hills in Los Altos, melting stuff with his propane torch in his backyard.  I know he had wild times traveling with the Dead in the early 70's.

 Jeff, a friend for 45 years.  Always friendly.  He would come in to my work (Kaiser) and say Hi.  We miss you.
