Although we have only known Jeff for two years, since purchasing our first steam car, we were very shocked and saddened to hear that he had passed away. Jeff was always very friendly and helpful, and very willing to share his vast knowledge, right from the start, and it feels as if we have known him much longer. He was always at the end of the phone if we had a problem, and ready to help out if problems occurred when on tour.
When our car broke down on our first Cotswolds tour, and having just met him, he was quick to offer Lesley and I a ride with him and his family in his Stanley model 85. We had such an enjoyable day; it was almost worth breaking down! His excellent work on the website and magazine go without saying, but more than that, he was such a lovely, lovely man, and will be irreplaceable.
Our best wishes and thoughts are with Pauline, Steve and family.
Don, Lesley and Andrew Cook
