Words cannot express how I feel at the loss of my older brother, who, throughout our lives, was always kind, honest, fair, and loving to me. I will miss all of the wonderful times we shared together. I was truly blessed to have known such a good soul. Love you always, Patty ❤️

You’re going to be missed very much. Especially your smiling face. Jeff was always laughing and kidding around. We would call him the Mayor it was a joke between the neighbors and Jeff. Never had a bad word to say about anyone. I lost a great friend and neighbor. R.I.P

Jeff was just an all around great guy. Always laughing and kidding around with everyone.We called him the Mayor a joke between him and the neighbors. Always smiling and he had a twinkle in his eyes. Everyone who knew Jeff liked him. I will miss you my friend. R.I.P

I am so sad to hear of the loss of my great friend Jeff. I have known him from elementary school and we did so much together growing up. From his mom being our cub scout den mother, cruising the avenue, and going on many hunting and fishing excursions.
His entire family had always treated me as being a part of theirs and I will remember all those great times we had.
I want to give my condolences to his wife Joanne, his sister Patty and Jeff’s entire family.
Rest in peace my friend …You will be surely missed.

I am so sad to hear of Jeff’s passing. We went to elementary school together and later reunited at the hospital when our sons were born on the same day. We enjoyed many good times after that, but distance and time went by all too quickly and it had been too long since our last conversation. My heart breaks that it is now too late, but I am so very thankful for all the memories…both as children then later as parents. Jeff was always so kind and his laugh was contagious. My condolences to Joanne and though they wouldn’t remember me, his children. Condolences to his sister, Patty as well. RIP old friend.

My deepest condolences to you, Joanne, my thoughts and prayers are with you. If ever there’s something you need please give us a call. My condolences also go out to Patty, Michael, David, Sarah and Jeff Jr. and the rest of his family and friends.
Very few people are blessed enough or are fortunate enough to go through life having a friend like Jeff. There are way too many stories, too many fishing trips, too many walks down the railroad tracks off Shawmut Ave., and so much laughter through the years! I was a painfully shy blonde haired freckle-faced kid starting the 4th grade at Sacred Heart School in New Bedford, Mass. the first time I saw that infectious smile…..little did we know our friendship would grow into something I’ve cherished and will continue to hold dear forever!

Jeff was the ultimate outdoors man, hunter, and fisherman. He was also one hell of a carpenter, too. I can recall the countless times we’d go for a walk in the woods, any woods, and within 5 minutes Jeff would find a salamander or a snake under a rock or log and more often than not have a new member to his collection of amphibians at home! I have countless memories like this to reflect on,be it our trips down the railroad tracks when Jeff would bring potatoes wrapped in foil and we’d start a campfire and enjoy the best tasting potatoes you can ever imagine or a hunting trip along the same tracks!

Jeff will always have a special place in my heart and my Love for him will be eternal.

Jeff, until we meet again, rest easy my friend and I’ve heard there’s a nice bass pond near you….enjoy!

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
