As not on Facebook Bev and I will post our condolences here.
Jeff was an essential resource for so many people on here and he will leave a huge space in the community.
We first met Jeff by chance when arriving in Cuzco, pure chance he came up to us as we pulled over looking for a place to stay.
He gave us the first of much advice that he freely gave over the following days.
We shared many a drink in his bar and when we finally got to ride together he took us out to the Salt pans on his immaculate Commando. He then asked if we wanted the longer road route round, or the shorter ‘donkey track’, his light Norton coped somewhat better than our bike and the Martin and Alan’s 1150 Adventurers, but what an experience. Later we had an alliteration with some drunk drivers on the road back and we all ended up in what could have been a nightmare situation as we involved the police and ended up going see a judge. Without Jeff God knows what would have happened, quite an experience. Jeff was staunch in his belief of ‘doing the right thing’.
We know Jeff has assisted countless travellers passing through and gave willingly, the fact he had a bar didn’t influence his actions. For sure it was a great place to hang out and all of us that passed through will remember Jeff with great affection and pass on our condolences to his family and friends.
A very sad loss, but a very great legacy and fond memories of great times.
RIP friend, Fritz y Bev.
