Jeffrey Howard Beckley

December 13, 1966 — November 3, 2022

Jeffrey Howard Beckley, age 55, of New Philadelphia passed away peacefully in Cleveland Clinic Hospital at Cleveland on Thursday, November 3, 2022, following a brief illness.

Born in Union Hospital at Dover on December 13, 1966, Jeff was a son of Sandra Kay Beckley of New Philadelphia and the late Orlo Beckley.

Jeff was a 1986 graduate of New Philadelphia High School and remained a lifelong Quaker supporter having attended as many Quaker football and basketball games as he could for many years. He was also an avid fan of The Ohio State University Buckeyes football team, as well as the Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Browns. He enjoyed being outdoors doing yard work and mowing and faithfully supported and attended events in which his nieces and nephews were involved.

Professionally Jeff worked for Buehler’s Fresh Foods Grocery store at Dover for more than 30 years where he had many friends among staff and customers alike.

In addition to his mother, Jeff is survived by a sister, Lisa (Charlie) Finton of New Philadelphia; a brother-in-law, Steve Kelley of New Philadelphia and his nieces and nephews, Chris (Nikki) Finton, Kurt Finton, and Brittany (fiancée, Brock Daugherty) Finton, Kaylee (Patrick) Ammar of North Ridgeville and Brennon Kelley and their families.

In addition to his father, Jeff was preceded in death by his sister, Lori Ann Kelley on October 20, 2022.
