Brent Allan Jeffries, 57, of Brazil, passed away Feb. 18, 2018. He was born Nov. 11, 1960, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to Dorval Dale Jeffries (deceased) and Linda Moss Cascun.
He was a graduate of Terre Haute North High School. He worked for Jim Vester Fencing, Todd Crane Construction and was supervisor at Forsyth Concrete products for 10 years and Great Dane Trailers in Terre Haute.
Brent lived every moment of his life for his family and spending time with them (we will miss you being goofey and entertaining us). As you would say, "Life is short, enjoy it." Husband, best friend, father, brother, and grandpa were the many titles of this great and wonderful man. His favorite song was 'I'm No Stranger To The Rain' by Keith Whitley. He was a great man and he left us on Feb. 18, 2018, to go home into God's kingdom to be with his dad.
Brent is survived by the love of his life and wife of 29 years, Jody Michelle Runyan Jeffries; his sons, Dale (Tamara) Jeffries, Nathan Jeffries, Jacob Jeffries, all of Brazil, and Joshua (Mandy) Jeffries of Terre Haute; granddaughters, Alyssa Jeffries of Brazil and Emaleigh and Adilyn of Terre Haute; brothers, Terry Jeffries of Las Vegas, Steve (Velma) Jeffries of Terre Haute and Brad (Andrea) Jeffries of Brazil; sister, Sherry Jeffries of Las Vegas; nephew, Steven Jeffries and family of Evansville; and nieces, Madison Jeffries of Brazil, Jamie and Jackie Jeffries of Terre Haute.
Brent was preceded in death by his father; grandparents, Myrtle and Ora Jeffries; and mother-in-law, Naomi Foster.
Mattox-Wood has been entrusted with the arrangements. Per his wishes cremation was chosen with burial at a later date. Donations can be sent to the family at 18 W. Joseph Street, Brazil, IN 47834. Fond memories and expression of sympathy may be shared at:
