Jeffery Allan Melsom (Jeff) was born August 8th, 1955, into a military family stationed in Germany. Joining the Air Force right out of high school, Jeff served four years of active duty and then served in the Reserves. Flying was in his blood and Jeff kept up a private pilot's license even after retirement from the Air Force Reserves.
He met his wife, Lois (Penny) while studying at Bob Jones University. His five sons, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Christopher, Anthony, and Gregory were his constant joy.
Jeff spent his career at Michelin where he enjoyed his work as a lab manager and appreciated the friendship of his co-workers.
