His life began August 9, 1967 in Plymouth, Indiana, the youngest of three children of Lloyd and Naomi Leland. He married Hope Marie McIntyre August 9, 1997 in St. Joseph, Michigan. She survives.
Jeff loved his family and was considered “Mr. Fix-it.” He loved race cars and all things fast except roller coasters – because he wasn’t driving. Jeff loved to be outdoors, especially hunting and fishing.
