The Family of Dr. Jeff Godbey

Dr. Steven Jeffrey "Jeff" Godbey, Jr.
Born March 13, 1987
Passed June 15, 2019

We appreciate everyone's patience as the family has been dealing with the initial shock of losing such a beloved husband, father, son, grandson, cousin, and nephew and we are ready to make a public announcement of Jeff's death.

Those of you who knew Jeff know that his philosophy on life was to live life to the fullest.  When he took things on, he did it with passion and commitment.  That included his career, his hobbies and his friends, but especially his wife, Leah, and their 14-month old daughter.

Unfortunately, he was quietly battling his own demons which eventually became too much.  But, he would be devastated to know that his wife and daughter would not be provided for so that they can live their lives to the fullest.  So many of you have already showered us and Leah with support and assistance, for which we are so appreciative.  Still so many others have asked what they can do.

So, we are now asking that those who can, and are so inclined, make contributions that will go directly to provide for Leah and the baby's needs.

To everyone who has already reached out, we are just so grateful; you have made us feel truly loved.  We love you all and treasure how much you obviously loved our son.
