Hello All,
I wasn't going to post anything but I decided I should.  I know that my Father had a great respect and passion for his work and a real love for the industry.  I am pasting the e-mail I sent out earlier so that everyone can have the information regarding the funeral.
Thank you for all of you support.  He loved these groups and truly loved helping anyone and everyone solve whatever problem they had be it personally or professionally.
Proud Father and great man Dennis L. Jeffrey, 64, passed away on Sunday evening July 3rd.  This has been a very hard time for myself and my family to say the least.  It is impossible to sum up my Dad's life and influence on others in an e-mail.  He was a man of many talents and a man of many answers.  He would help anyone in need at any time at any cost to himself.  The lessons that he has taught thousands will continue to influence millions.  I know that even though I will miss his physical presence dearly, the memories and lessons past, present, and future that he has given and will continue to give will be with me forever.
I Love You and Miss You Dad.
Josh Jeffrey

RIP Dennis.


I've only been around on these forums for a few years, but plenty long enough to know what a legend Dennis is. Although I have had many a heated debate with him, I always respected his wealth of knowledge and willingness to help, even those who may have given him a bit of lip on the forums every now and then. The sign of a truly genuine man!


He has definitely left his mark on this discussion group, thankfully his pearls of wisdom will be forever searchable on these boards for as long as they remain.


Condolences to the Jeffery family, all the best.

I am saddened to hear of this loss. I feel very fortunate to have met and worked with Dennis. He was a great asset to the Inventor community. Just recently I started to work on a small project for him and really looked forward to finishing it...RIP Dennis. You will be missed by all who knew you.

Every day I search this forum I find Dennis' name.  For many years to come I'm sure I will continue to benefit from his sharing his knowledge. 

Dennis' legacy lives on every time we help someone else solve a problem through these forums, email or a phone call.

I've never met or talked to Dennis in person, but i've read many of his numerous posts on this newsgroup.

He was a great help and will be missed.
