Jeff passed away on Sunday, June 24th after a long brave fight against cancer. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Jeff was always so proud of being a “Brooklyn Boy”. He is survived by his longtime love, Helene Barcoff, Beloved Step-Father to Tami Barcoff Schneider of New York, Stacey Barcoff Butler and her husband, Chuck Butler, of Dallas. Loving grandfather (aka PJ or Papa Jeff) to his grandchildren Brady & Casey Schneider and Brooks & Gabbi Butler. His happiest times were spent with his family. After family, he loved his Nook and walking the Katy Trail, where you could find him most mornings schmoozing. And Jeff loved his Fitbit so he’s taking it with him so he can count his steps to Heaven. He will always be remembered for having such warmth and a great sense of humor.
We will miss him terribly but those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear. We will remember him always with love and joy.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Jeff’s memory to Friends of the Katy Trail, the Jewish War Veterans, the Wounded Warrior Project or a charity of your choice.
