When you love what you do, you make sure that it keeps going. Jeff did just that. Customers were friends to Jeff, so many of you know that he lost his battle with Glioblastoma brain cancer in late February. This was a surprise to some as Jeff continued to work as long as he could - even if it meant wearing an odd device on his head. If it was going to give him more time with family, friends, and the farm he'd do it without skipping a beat. This photo was taken by his daughter early in the morning in the late summer of 2019 as the guys loaded an order of big rolls. Watching him continue to do something he loved brought her so much peace. When Jeff was diagnosed in August of 2018 we knew the prognosis was grim but he knew that Uhl Turf needed to and would continue. He spent the last year-and-a-half preparing James and Thomas - his two right hand men - to run the day-to-day operations, loosening the reigns bit by bit as he stepped back where needed. He taught me how to take care of administrative tasks and of course how to decipher the endless notes he's taken over the 34 years since he took over his father's business. James and Thomas have been successfully running the sod farm on their own this spring, and have continued to keep our customers happy and honor the business values and integrity that Jeff placed such importance on. Thank you, Jeff.
