On December 26, 2003, he was united in marriage to Tamra Westendorf and they blended a wonderful family of 8 children, spouses, grandchildren and great –grandchildren and had lived in the St. Anthony/ Clemons area most of his life. Jeff was a farmer thru and thru and also worked at Danfoss in Ames for over 45 years. He had been a member of Our Saviours Lutheran Church in Ackley, Iowa. His family was always first in his life. He and the boys enjoyed car shows, tractor pulls and shows and truck pulls. Jeff passionately loved his family, co-workers at Danfoss, and his farming neighbors. He loved to drive through the country-side and stop and visit, or call the neighbors about the crops. He loved attending the grandchildren’s sporting, dance, and activities events which was usually an every night event somewhere.
