Jeffrey Alexander Shreeve was born Feb. 13, 1965. He was considered Deann Shreeve’s blessing from God because he was born not breathing and had to be brought back to life. From that moment on he went to his mother for most scrapes, cuts, and life lessons he needed help with. Because of their bond he developed his love for card games. He bonded with his father Floyd Shreeve through Cub Scouts, family camping and road trips. That was when he developed his love for the great outdoors. Mainly fishing! He bonded with his 6 siblings on these trips as well, being the typical younger brother. The family had taken many trips to Dardanelle, California as the destination.
When Jeff became old enough, he joined the Marine Corp. While in service he was a mechanic. And he was deployed to Okinawa Japan. When he separated from service, he became a Truck driver and traveled across the USA.
Jeff had come across many stumbling blocks in his life. It was while trying to fix himself from some of those stumbling blocks that he ended up in a drug rehab in Turlock, Ca. While in rehab and working on his recovery, he had a stumbling block that landed him with living in the apartment of a friends’ girlfriend. As he adjusted to living in a new place, he became acquainted the new friends’ babysitter and younger sister, Dawn Williams. They spent many nights together playing Rummy and Cribbage. He even taught her Texas Hold’em. It was during these nights that they fell in love. She then told him; she was going to marry him. He was scared, but listened and married her on March 20, 2004.
Three months after the wedding they had their first son, William A. Shreeve in June of 2004. Next came Zachary A. Shreeve in June of 2005. Then finally Nicoli A. Shreeve in December of 2006. After the birth of his sons, the family moved to Pueblo, Co. Where Jeff went back to his career as a Truck Driver.
In October of 2020, he hit another stumbling block. He became paralyzed from the neck down. After surgery and 2 grueling months of physical therapy he was able to walk and stand for short times. He never did get full mobility back, but strove for a little more every day. All through his stumbling blocks he continued to play cards, fish and become friends with others that he shared his interests with. Jeff was an honest man that loved and protected deeply.
Jeff passed on October 1, 2022 in Pueblo. He is survived by his wife Dawn Shreeve; his sons, William Shreeve, Zachary Shreeve, and Nicoli Shreeve; his siblings, Michael Shreeve Sr., Catherine Chapin, Janette Ricketts, Gregory Shreeve Sr., and Daniel Shreeve Sr., as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
He believed we are all Gods’ children and we are all here to learn. Also, that once family always family. He taught and coached many through life. We will always turn to Jeff for guidance, support, and love, till we meet again in the next stage.
