Dawn Cashmere (Correa) said: Jeff, I was your neighbor next door (in Kent) for many years. I was heart broken when my Dad told me. (Joseph Correa) Your Dad had that big booming voice, and the kindest heart. And he was so very young. My Dad and your Dad would talk at the white picket fence and share the happenings in the neighborhood. My family and I are so sorry for your loss. We hope you can find happiness in the fond memories you have of your Dad. Take Care. Dawn Cashmere (Correa)
