He retired from the City of Morganton in 2002. He was fondly called “Moe” by his co-workers. Jeff was a firefighter at Brendletown Fire and Rescue for over 20 years where he served as Chief for 12 years.
Jeff had recently learned he was going to become a grandpa for the first time and he was eagerly looking forward to spoiling baby Lowdermilk.
In addition to his mother, Jeff was preceded in death by his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Guy and Velma Davis, his grandparents and a niece and nephew.

Also surviving are his sisters and their spouses, Dianne Sparks (Dirk), Debbie Bess (Mel) and Donna Davis (Randy).

Additionally, Jeff is survived by his long-time childhood friend, James Brown, whom he thought of like a brother. Jeff also leaves behind his sweet canine, Tiny. He loved all of his pets.
