Jeff was a talented musician and had a special love for playing the drums. He had a passion for music, and especially loved Frank Zappa and jazz. He was a film and tv enthusiast, and enjoyed watching the Packers. Jeff was a genuinely, effortlessly cool guy who always had a certain swagger about him. Most of all, Jeff was a kind and loving father and grandfather. Raising his daughters was the highlight and joy of his life. His family was the most important thing to him and he had so much love for them.

Jeff was preceded in death by his loving parents, Don and Betty Gonnering; and his beloved daughter, Margaret Mae Gonnering. It was his final wish to be laid to rest beside her.
