Jeff, all the best to you in your retirement, Now Shelly might get the honey to do list completed, it was a blast working with and for you, I have just a couple of memories to share that everyone might get a smile from, first the “red rocket” that was my every 3 month free beer car and you be happy to know it is being used by a young couple in Smiths Falls, and that I was responsible for adding a 4th Sqn to your parade, that was a classic, Do enjoy retirement, and if in need of companionship GO is retired now too.

Jeff, congratulations on an outstanding career. It was a honour and privilege to serve with you at CANOSCOM and CFJSR. All the best as you embark on a well deserved retirement.

It doesn’t feel like it, but I suppose it was a lifetime ago when we first served together in Hawg Troop in 1 CSR back in ’86. Ted Davidson, Loren Bolt, Ross Pollock, Al Rhyno, Gronk Grenier, Andy Bing, Rick Bauer, Kevin Phillips, Steve Cobden, Tom Bellamy and you. What a crew. I was never the same after that! Fast forward to Germany, and then the JSR, Vancouver, CANOSCOM and back to the Regiment; I never seemed to be able to shake you. Thanks for never losing your sense of fun, and best of luck to you, Shelley and the dogs in whatever comes next.

Hey Jeff, Congratulations on your well deserved retirement. I remember like it was yesterday (1983) that you, Paul Meaney and I went down to Motto Sport Plus and Bought our Honda Motorcycles. You were the only one that knew how to ride and you give Paul and I a quick lesson on how to ride. We made it back to Base with little Dramma. Lol……
It was a honour to have served with you…
All the Best in your next stage my Friend…..Cheers…..

Hey Brother happy retirement. I was there with you in the beginning starting with our 3s, then posted out to 3 Sqn. 1CSR. ,together. We had a ball back then. Tons of funny stories,, I keep remembering the morning you came into C 17 with no pants on. You woke up in the woods by the MIR. you sneaked back to the shacks through the golf course.
Anyway Brother you did well for yourself and it was a pleasure to have served with you. I hope you enjoy retirement. I’m If you ever get down to Halifax look me up

Jeff:

A sad day for the Corps when you finally sign-off these means and close down the net, but well-deserved by any and all standards.

Thanks for the curling lessons and for your patience on the golf green.

Hats off to an exemplary RSM who kept an inexperienced Adjutant in-line, engaged, and able to support the command suite. You were an excellent mentor, advisor, disciplinarian, and friend.

Enjoy your retirement Jeff. Keep your sword, pace stick, and MMM in good order on the ol’ retirement wall.
