Jeffrey S. Zeller- a dedicated husband, father of 6, and friend of many, passed away on October 30,2022 at the age of 55 in Honeoye Falls, NY.
Jef grew up in Edwards, NY where he was actively involved in athletics and graduated at the top of his high school class. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the Army and began his training to become a registered nurse. Post military, Jef went on to work in the medical field before retiring in 2020.
Jef was a man of his word. He loved deeply and had a generous heart. He actively spoke with fellow veterans at some of the most vulnerable times in their lives. His strong presence and love of God helped guide him throughout his life.

He has two children from a previous marriage, Bryan (Kamryn) Zeller and Alisha Sharp. When he spoke of his family, his eyes would light up and emanate how proud he was of his family. Family was his entire world.
