Joseph Jeffery Messier, 55, known by friends and family as Jeff, passed away on Sunday, April 14, 2024, from complications with renal cancer that he battled with courage and quiet dignity since 2020.

Hogwood; stepson, Alexander D. Hogwood; grandsons, James A. Vaughan, Cairo Z. Vaughan, and Liam S. Hogwood; and other extended family members and friends. 

Jeff’s family extends their heartfelt thanks to the healthcare professionals and hospice support that helped him through his battle with cancer.
