Obituary

Michael B. Jeffries Born 8/1/1944 Grand Rapids, MI  Died 2/22/2022 Gainesville, GA 

 

Michael joined the Navy at 17 ready to see the world following in the footsteps of his brothers Harry and Linnie, after serving for 9 years he settled in Jacksonville FL. In 1973 he joined the Army National Guard to complete his service and retired with 21 years in total. The Guard gave him some of the best friends he ever had in life and the start of his nursing career.  Nursing led him to medical administration at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Jax, bringing his boss Marge Lassiat and her family into our lives, then the adventures began. Marge and Michael along with Carol Burrell all found new opportunities at Northeast Georgia Medical Center moving all three families north to start the next phase of their lives. After retiring from the hospital is hobbies were family, friends and fishing.

In 1970 Michael met Sharon at a Halloween party, he smitten with her legs and her falling for his blue eyes later married in September of 1971 embarking on a series of adventures. Especially one born in 1974 named Ramona, a daddy’s girl for life. Up or down, thin or flush in 51 years they never left each other’s side. My parents were soul mates from the start. Every morning they say “Good Morning, I Love you, Thank God for another day”. His love, strength, loyalty, honor, advice and amazing since of humor will live on through all the lives he touched.
