He is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years, Alice J. (Gates) Donovan, his son and daughter-in-law, Ash and Aimee Donovan, and his precious grandchildren Reilly Jane and Jack Presley.

Jeff was employed by I.B.M. Corp. with 30 years of service. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, hosting card parties and cooking in his kitchen with no one in his way. He will be fondly remembered for his scalloped potatoes & ham and deviled eggs. He loved “Sparky”, his old family dog. Jeff’s favorite saying was “It is what it is.”
He was a truly devoted grandfather and he cherished Reilly and Jack more than life.
