Jeff was born on July 20th, 1957, to John and Margaret Pravic. He was their first-born child. Later he would become a big brother to his siblings Brian and Leslie. Jeff always had a pure heart but would be the first to admit that he gave his parents a run for their money. Even though Jeff could find trouble easily, he was a very humble man, that had a special connection with animals, both domestic and wild. He had a love for LOUD music and never missed a NASCAR race. He always had a heart too big for his own good. He was the kind of man who would give a stranger the shirt of his back even when he had no more shirts to wear himself and he would help anyone in need.

 

In 1976, Jeff married his first wife, although the marriage was not long-term, at a young age, they were blessed with their daughter Misty. In 1993, Jeff married his second wife and added more blessings to the family tree with Katelyn, Amy and Jason. Jeff was very devoted to his family. There was a 25-year span from his eldest to youngest child, this allowed him to teach each one of his children unique life skills throughout different eras of his life. The most admirable skill he taught his children was for them to always choose to do right and make the best decisions for themselves. It didn’t matter if it meant they may lose an opportunity or had to swallow their pride. He always made sure they knew the importance of integrity and the value being able to lay their head down at night knowing they were fair and honest, even if it meant they didn't get ahead that day. He lived by this philosophy.


Jeff later became a grandfather to Vincent, Corey, Miranda and bonus Grandchildren, Antonio and Makenzi. He was always the fun Grandpa who played ball, wrestled and shook them till you almost peed their pants when hugging them goodbye, something the kids looked forward to every time they saw him. He was genuine and fun; His biggest joy was being a dad and a grandpa.

 

Jeff spent many years working at his father’s bindery, Signet Printing, alongside many of his family members. He went on to work a few other places once that company closed, but 11 years ago, he found the workplace he always felt he belonged Versatrans, and his co-workers became his 2nd family. Jeff was always excited to share about what new graphics and equipment they got and when the company ventured out to create the Luca Mariano, a new brand of Whiskey, you would have thought he was the one to have come up with the idea himself. He was so proud to be a part of something so exciting, he always wore the brand T-shirts and shared samples of the whiskey at family gatherings. His work family was just as important to him as his blood family. We are forever grateful that he was able to experience that sense of belonging for all those years.
 

Jeff went home to his heavenly father (and his parents) on October 20th, peacefully with his children by his side just as he had always been when they needed him. His legacy will live on through his siblings, his children, and his grandchildren and his kind soul and sharing love will always be remembered.
