On Sunday, January 17, 2021, Jeff Kayne, loving husband and father of two, passed away suddenly at home at the age of 69. Jeff was born June 13, 1951 in Vancouver, BC to Harold and Connie Kayne. He was part of a military family and lived all across Canada and in Germany for four years. He met his wife, Kerrie, in Tauranga, NZ, and married in New Westminster, BC on February 21, 1987. They raised two sons, Fraser and Gabriel.
For Jeff, working with his hands is what he loved most. There was always an aspect of the house that he felt he could fix or improve. He shared decades of knowledge in home improvement that was greatly admired by friends and family. He was a frequent source of advice for many neighbours and was extremely generous with his time. Being a relatively private person he liked to spend most of his time in the workshop tinkering on projects. Other pursuits he enjoyed were traveling, gardening, political discussions, music and old movies. He was known for his easy going nature, positive attitude and patience with others.
Jeff was preceded in death by his father, Harold, his mother, Connie, and his brother, Jim. He is survived by his wife, Kerrie, his two children, Fraser and Gabriel, his sister, Lori, and her partner, John. He will always be remembered by his extended family in New Zealand.
