Obituary for Jeffrey Pafford

Jeffrey Alan Pafford, age 58 of South Lyon. Loving husband of Linda; father of Jeffrey (Megan) Pafford; and Shawn (Joanna) Pafford; grandfather of Connor, Felicity, Ainsley and baby girl Pafford; brother of Michelle Pafford Helms (Erik Helms); and brother-in-laws James (Janet) Clements, David (Colleen) Clements, Robert (Sandra) Clements; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

A gifted sales professional, Jeff’s career in the Metro Detroit area included sales positions at corporations that included Ameritech and Siemens -- where he booked newsworthy deals and earned the distinguished President’s Club Award. Later in his career, Jeff worked as a sales professional at Champion Chevrolet in Howell.

Some of Jeff’s best moments were spent as a devoted father to his sons, Jeffrey and Shawn, who he coached in the Downriver Detroit area starting with Little League Baseball and culminating with hockey teams that included R.F.B, Woodhaven and Visual Impact. Also of utmost importance to Jeff was the time he spent with his wife and best friend Linda. Always full of fun, Jeff met Linda as a member of the tennis team at Taylor Center High School when he was 17 and Linda was 15 when he would intentionally aim tennis balls in her direction to get her attention. The two went on to share 36 years of marriage together filled with camping trips, Corvette rides, cruises abroad and boat rides on the Detroit River. Jeff, who was always quick with a joke, led a full life and will be missed dearly by his family and friends.

Jeff was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Barbara Pafford, who resided in the Downriver Detroit area, where Jeff was raised and resided for many years.

Visitation is Wednesday 3-8 at Phillips Funeral Home, 122 W Lake St., South Lyon, with the funeral service Thursday at Phillips Funeral home at 11 a.m. Memorial donations may be sent to the American Cancer Society or the Myotonic Dystrophy Association.
