He was preceded in death by his parents, Mary Lucille and Clifford Gregory; nephew, Jerry Wayne Robertson; and brother-in-law, Melvin Robertson.
Jeff lived a life full of accomplishments, none greater than his family. Jeff began his entrepreneurship in California with Industry Machine Tool Rebuilders. He grew his company for over 20 years until the call for home brought him back to Muhlenberg County in 1991. Jeff loved people and in his entrepreneurial way reached so many with several businesses in the area. Always a success and always people minded, his greatest success beyond his family is Gregory Lake. He was very prideful of Gregory Lake, but he always enjoyed the opportunity to give back to the community and was extremely grateful to the community for their support.
