Jeff was an avid outdoorsman, who loved camping, four-wheeling, hunting and fishing. His love for animals was infectious. If he couldn’t bring his dog with him, he wasn’t coming. Jeff also loved to cook and always enjoyed a good rib-eye steak.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Joyce Kay Klein and his maternal grandparents, Otis and Dorothy Bronner.
Jeff is survived by his loving wife Trisha Wickert-Klein; sister and brother-in-law, Buffy and Gene Proper: uncle Buz and aunt Lynn Bronner; many cousins and very dear friends also survive.
