Jeff was born on July 31, 1957 in Warren, to Richard L. and Barbara R.

He is survived by his wife Carolyn Confer, two sisters Debbie (Denny) Groves of Stoneham and Lori Brown of Austin TX, his nephews Ryan, Tyler, and James, his niece Alyssa, as well as many great-nephews and great-nieces, his father, Richard Confer and his father-in-law, David Martin of Edinburg TX.  He was pre-deceased by his mother Barbara Confer, his mother-in-law Mary Martin, and brother-in-law Douglas Martin.
