Jeffrey Lee Matheny was born January 22, 1956. Jeff had it his way; he played thru to the back nine at 2:10 a.m. on August 11, 2019, Budweiser in one hand, golf club in the other.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Dorothy Matheny. Left to clean up the paperwork he refused to get involved with is soul mate and wife, Lisa (Jessee) Matheny and brother, Gary. Smiling at his memory are brother, Ron; daughter, Brooke; grandkids, Kiersten, Kaiden, Zach and Atticus; dearest friend Tomm Dunbar; work buddies; golf friends; and lot and lot and lots of bar buds! We will all miss him in our own way, sorta. Jeff had a great life, with a wonderful family and friends, and he lived it to the fullest. Jeff hated tears and drama, so pull out your best memories with a big smile and a laugh. Jeff loved to laugh – keep that in your heart, that laugh was one of a kind. Just to hear it in your head will make you …well, laugh.
Family will receive friends from 3-6 p.m. on Thursday, August 15, 2019, at Cotner Funeral Home 7369 East Main Street, Reynoldsburg where his funeral will follow at 6 p.m. Casual dress please – even Browns and OSU garb welcome. Jeff won’t care what you wear, only that you were there!
