I have known Jeff since high school and he was always such a sweet and caring individual! I hadn't really gotten to talk to him since his illness got to be so serious, but I'm sure his sweet nature never changed! I will always remember his crooked little grin and how much fun he was to be around! Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss, you will all be in my thoughts and prayers!

I just learned of Jeff's passing and want to say how sorry I am for your loss. Jeff Coy and George came to Olive Branch several yrs back and we all became very close. He was a good man and a GREAT friend. The last time I spoke with him he told me all about Elizabeth and was beside himself with pride. God bless you darlin for bringing him so much happiness. I am so sorry but you should always remember how much he loved you and how proud he was of you. You all are in my prayers and I know God will give you HIS peace. Again I am deeply sorry!!! Karen Brown Olive Branch, Ms.

Jeff and I shared many great times back in the day. He was always such a sweetie. After re-locating I lost touch with Jeff over the years. However; I am sure his sweet demeanor prevailed until the end. Although I know how very difficult it is to loose a loved one may the Treadway family find peace in knowing Jeff is now free of pain and suffering. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Big hugs for little Elizabeth. I know how very much she will miss her Daddy.
