Jeff was born at Fairchild AFB, Washington on April 17, 1961 to Allen and Juanita Ward.
Jeff spent his childhood living in Morocco, Spain, New Hampshire, Maine, Germany, North Carolina and Spokane.
He had many magical times traveling, exploring and adventuring with his family and friends during his early years.
Jeff graduated from Shadle Park High School in 1979.
He worked in Wyoming for a couple of years, but returned to Spokane to settle down.
Jeff had many passions in his life.
Jeff’s primary passion and focus in life was his abiding love for his daughters - Alaina and Jessica, and his granddaughter Emma.
Emma knew her “Poppa” was the greatest super-hero in the world and Jeff was sure Emma was destined for many great and wonderful adventures and responsibilities when she grew up.
He also loved football - particularly the Colts and the Cowboys.
Jeff will be dearly missed by his beloved daughters Alaina Ward and Jessica Ward, his cherished granddaughter, Emma Contois, Malcom Contois, fiancÄ‚Ĺ of Alaina and father of Emma, his parents Allen and Joan Ward, brother and sister-in-law Mark and Carolyn Ward, sister and brother-in-law Kim and Tom Rohall, sister Lori Ward, nieces Shannon Rohall-Smith, Danielle Rohall, Marissa Wilson, nephew David Ward, as well as Jeff’s best friends Paul Lauz and Chris Jarvis.
