I am so sorry. My condolences to the entire family. I love you all and miss you all so much, Annamarie
Donna and family–so sorry to hear the news. May his memory be a blessing to you all. Laurie
Uncle Jeff was one of the most incredible people any of us has ever had the privilege to come into contact with. We are so greatful that my daughter and Uncle Jeffs grandchildren got the opportunity to experience his joyful spirit, however breif it may have been, and of the countless memories I was able to make with him and Aunt Donna, Cecilia, Preston, Megan, and all of their children. His memory will live on through his art and the countless lives he touched. You will be forever missed Uncle Jeff!ΓÖíΓÖí
Uncle Jeff,The world is a little bit quieter now that you’re gone but we will always carry the memory of your booming voice and thunderous laugh with us always. I can’t imagine not getting another hug or ‘smooch’ from you. You will never be forgotten. Aunt Donna, Megan, Preston and Cecilia I hope you feel the love that surrounds you as you go through these next few days and weeks and that we as your extended family are here for you and anything that you may need. We love you all so much.
You will be sadly missed my dear friend

My condolence Donna and family. Jeff will be missed by all his family and friends. He always cheered me up whenever I spoke with him.
Donna,Words cannot express the heartfelt condolences that I feel for you at this time. You have always spoken fondly of your family. We all go through trials & tribulations with our family, but you always had positive things to say, as it should be. I learned something this year that is both positive and a great source of inspiration. It goes like this, ‘I would rather love and be with you in the present, than mad at you about something in the past.’ Love & Blessings to you and your family. Mary Lewis

Dear Donna and the rest of Jeff’s family and extended family. Sam & I were so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. It was a complete shock. I don’t think the world will be the same without Jeff, he was such a presence. When I think of all the lives he touched including those of hundreds of students, his life was truly remarkable. I will never forget the old days at Parson’s with Jeff’s booming voice in Passalaqua’s class, he was my last connection to that time at Parson’s I will and Sam will never forget him.
Our familys favorite neighbor..favorite basketball player, AND a wonderful Husband and Father..You will be missed so much, your smile, your laugh,YOU!!!!Our deepest sympathy to Donna and your beautiful family..
A wonderful mentor and friend.
just returned from one of the memorable rememberance of a human being that we have ever attended. We knew Jeff. and Donna as a loving and fun loving couple. As family members we have shared family parties and weddings with each other as most people would do over a life time.However, tonight we were so proud to have attended Jeff s wake, so totally impressed with all of Jeff s friends and family. Each of his children and a niece and former student and teacher spoke of Jeff in such a loving and honorable way. So moving and enjoyable to hear what a truly remarkable man. The room was fully packed with well wishers and family. I have never witnessed such a beautiful, sincere, and loving memorial.My prayers are with Donna, children, grandchildren, and friends. God gave Jeff a talent, and it was shared with outstanding commitment and service to his community and students. .
Dear Donna,God bless you and your family. I am so sorry to hear about your loss! I pray that God grants you some peace and good memories of your times together. Remember, it is ok to cry even though you feel you have to be strong! Lean on God and he will be your strength. Love you! LaSandra
Dear Donna,My heart felt condolence to you and your family. Wishing you the best. God Bless.
Donna and Family, we are praying for you. We will miss Jeff, but will always remember him! The Lloyds
You were an inspiration to all.
So sorry to hear about Jeff. Our prayers and thoughts are with your family during this difficult time. He was truly an inspiration to everyone who knew him and will be greatly missed.Sal,Beth,Danielle and Sal LaMonica
Donna,My deepest and dearest sympathy and condolences go out to you and your family during this time of mourning. Please accept my deepest condolences for your family’s loss. Words cannot even begin to express my sorrow when I was informed of Jeffrey’s passing. I recall the times you spoke to me about the art class he was teaching and how much he enjoyed it.C.Benjamin
Donna and family:I was shocked and saddened when Scott calledto tell me the news about Jeff. I’m sure your mom met him at those pearly gates–and is showing him the ropes. I know yourgrief and that of your family must be overwhelming, and that words can’t ease the pain in the void left in your lives. I wish we were still next door so I could give you a hug and comfort you.
God Bless as he was a great man! You will be dearly missed!
Jeff entered our lives, first as the husband of Donna, the girl next door–and then surprisingly years later, turned out to also be the bestfriend of my son-in-law’s brother Billy Melanson. It’s a small world after all. One consolation, Donna, is that you know Ro will take good care of him in heaven. He is not alone. Condolences and love to you Donna, and your family.

Kind. I think that's the word for them. There wasn't anything they wouldn't do for us. They were wonderful and so appreciated.
Thank you for your professionalism and compassion. The thoughtful gestures such as the food you provided after we made the arrangements and while in the limo were very much appreciated. Losing a loved one is difficult but I felt at ease knowing she was in good hands with you.
Excellent service, very caring staff, and the facilities are beautiful.
The Vigliante family and their staff made the arrangement process simple and straightforward. I cannot say enough about how caring and professional the wonderful people at Branch Funeral Home are.
So caring from beginning to end! Death is never easy but Branch made it so much more bearable. Thank you!
It is difficult to imagine a 5-star experience in the funeral home services, but Branch should really get an extra star! Our situation was unusual and difficult, in many regards, but Steve made all the pieces come together so well. He is very patient and understanding and the consummate professional.
There is not enough I can say about Branch Funeral Home the services were second to none. What they did for my father, my family and I will never forget. I would recommend Branch to anyone looking for an amazing experience during an extremely difficult time. Our sincere thanks to Paul and the rest of the Vigliante family and staff of Branch Funeral Home.
