Last week my wife and I took Jeff Stores to the airport and he went home to New Jersey to live. His mother and daughter live there.
Jeff lived in Malibu for over 30 years. The first 10 years he was a salesman on the road selling construction equipment. About 1978 he went into the grading business. He graded many Malibu home-sites and had the County Fire Abatement weed cutting contract for many years. Since then, he worked for several contractors and twice for me over the past fifteen years.
Jeff was an original member of the Kiwanis Club and every year was always there to do yeoman service for the annual Chili Cook-off. It was Jeff who went in with his equipment and spent days to set up the site for the show and then worked and spent days cleaning the site up after the show.
We’ll all miss Jeff and we wish him the best in his new life back east.
