    Jeff was my photography student when he attended New Prague High School. Over the years, we pursued our shared interest in collecting and searching for antiques. Jeff was an antique sleuth and admirer of unqiue connections to the past. I will miss Jeff as he leaves a void in the joy of connecting with a former student and sharing his passion for the “find.” Jeff and Camille were very kind to Linda and me. Our sympathy goes out to Camille who was a rock and the special person in Jeff’s life. In addition, we send our sympathy to Jeff’s siblings.

    Love, Dennis and Linda Dvorak

    I met Jeff doing what we both enjoyed that was junking. Always happy and willing to give advice. He will be missed at the 4th of July Flea Market that Jeff and Camille organized so well May our love ones find comfort, we will all miss him. Brad
