Mr. Stockstill spent many years as a truck driver. He was an avid sports fan. His favorite teams were the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Chicago Bulls. In the 90's, Jeff spent many days in Chicago watching the Bulls play. Over the last several years, he always found a way to attend a Buckeyes game as well. Not only did Jeffery enjoy sports, he also loved music. Every year he attended the Blues Festival in Chicago.
Jeff loved his family. His son, Josh meant the world to him and he loved Michelle as if she were his own daughter. He absolutely loved watching his grandson, Tyler play basketball and jumped for joy knowing he would be having a second grandchild.
