Jeffry Duff Owens, 75, passed away 9/10/2023 in Queen Creek, Arizona.
Jeff was born to John and Wilma Owens in Cleveland, Ohio and was a proud 1966 graduate of Garfield Heights High School (Go Bulldogs). After graduation, he began his telephony career at Ohio Bell/AT&T as an Apparatus Technician before serving in the Army in the Vietnam War. Upon his return, he embarked on an over 40-year career with Ohio Bell/AT&T and other telephone companies throughout the U.S.
Jeff delighted in racing and restoring cars and, according to his tally, owned approximately 50 vehicles throughout his lifetime, though we suspect there’s a few more to add to the list. He was also an avid golfer and once retired in the Phoenix area, he spent much time on courses with friends and family. Jeff was a devoted member of his gym, committed to fitness workouts with his morning crew, evident by his physique and six-pack abs!
Jeff was a private man, though it was unmistakable that he loved and cherished those in his life. Jeff will be dearly missed by his daughter Amanda (Craig), his sister Tawny (Steve), his brother Brant (Lana), nephews Jeff (Jodi), Jon (Emma) and Jason as well as friends he held close.
Services will be private.
