Douglas D'Mont Jeffs, age 53 of Warren, died Monday, March 27, 2017 the St. John Hospital & Medical Center in Detroit. He was born November 4, 1963 in Royal Oak, Michigan, son of Delores (nee: Roger) and the late Douglas Jeffs.
For employment, Douglas ultimately landed within the realm of the many automotive suppliers, being offered a position at Vehma International. Extending over 24 years of service excellence, he was dedicated to his job and made many wonderful workplace friendships along the way. Some of these friendships were of the "furry" nature and came in the form of the cats that hung around his shop that he fed and nurtured from day-to-day. Douglas was renowned to all as being a devout animal lover, so it simply came natural for him to take care of his feline friends.
Like most guys, Douglas possessed a love of sports and time away from work was often filled by satisfying those pleasures. One of his favorites was hangin' out at the lanes with his fellow bowling mates. One of the great American pastimes, there was always a plethora of fun and entertainment to be had and Douglas was right there in the mix. He was also quite a fan of softball and enjoyed the friendly competition he shared in the countless games he played over the years. Always in search of that "seemingly elusive" Grand Slam, just hearing the sound of that bat connecting with the ball provided Douglas all the macho he desired at that sweet moment in time. And then there were his iconic Red Wings. Experiencing half-a-life of watching his boys in the winged wheel compete in the playoffs was an exhilaration the transcended words. To say he was merely a fan would be a tremendous understatement,…he was a passionate and devout banner-waver, to be sure!
Another of Douglas' favorite pastimes was experienced each time he headed out on vacation,…which often meant loadin' up the car and traveling north to Bear Lake, a cozy resort just off the coast of Lake Michigan and south of Traverse City. Unquestionably some of Michigan's most precious property, sitting on the beach and soaking in the peacefulness and tranquility that Bear Lake provided made every hour of work worthwhile,…just knowing it afforded those awesome experiences and memories. If you're going to escape the concrete jungle, Douglas knew that Bear Lake was the place to go.
Yet of all that brought him joy in life, nothing could hold a candle to his cherished daughters and granddaughter. They were truly the love of his life and infused him with a passion that he carried, daily, in his heart and soul. A devoted husband, father and grandfather, Douglas leaves us far too soon, but not without imparting his own brand of love and care that touched countless souls in his journey through life. HE will be missed immensely and loved eternally.
Douglas was the beloved husband of Nancy. Dearest father of Leisha and Victoria. Stepfather of Jason (Tracy) Petipren, and grandfather to Mirelle Petipren. Loving son of Delores Jeffs, and brother of Deena Jeffs.
A Memorial Visitation for Douglas will be held Friday, March 31st from 3-9 pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Rd. at Common (12 ½ Mile Rd.) in Warren.
