Jerry D. Neff

Our sweet Jerry passed away peacefully on February 27, 2024.

He was born to Leland Neff and Esther Petrarca Neff in Cottonwood Heights, UT. Jerry worked as a Regional Maintenance Engineer for Washington Federal, Henries Dry Cleaners and recently retired from Kohls Department stores.

Jerry was an avid outdoorsman and fished his entire life, he lived for it! He was known for his pristine yard and could be found digging in the dirt even if there was snow on the ground. He was a gourmet chef and loved cooking for everyone, especially on holidays.

Jerry was kind, handsome and generous. He would lend a hand to anyone in need.

He leaves behind his wife, Angela Carras, children Jessica Jacobs and Chad Neff, and 6 grandchildren, sisters Patti (Dave) Jaynes, Sues Hansen, his Nouna Connie Pavlicas, mother in law Mary, brothers in- law Van Carras and Jack Arveseth, sister- in- law Shallyn Smith, many nieces and nephews, Linda Neff and his favorite fishing friend Dave Crane. He also leaves behind his beautiful Labrador Ginger.

Special thanks to Applegate Home Health.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated Monday March 4, 2024 at 11:00 AM, at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, 279 South 300 West, Salt Lake City, Utah. 

He will be laid to rest following mass at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 1342 East 500 South, Salt Lake City. 


We love you, Jerry!
