Heaven gained a star, while many of us are left with a dark hole. Jeffery Glen Granberry joined his maternal grandparents and a sweet baby cousin in Heaven on February 6, 2018.
Jeffery was always a shining star. He had an infectious smile, that went from ear to ear, and he was seldom seen without it shining. His wit and humor masked a heart of gold. You could see the mischievous twinkle in his eye, most any time. He was sweet, compassionate, caring and enjoyed a good time. Not sure there was ever anyone that did not like him.
Jeffery was born to Kellie (Dent) and Greg Granberry on December 29, 1993. Though raised in Central Texas, his heart was always yearning for a return to his East Texas roots. Given time, there is no doubt he would have made his home here.
In addition to his parents, Jeffery leaves behind his “big” brother Jonathan and sister-in-law Gerynn and his precious niece and nephew Griffynn and Garner. Also, paternal grandparents, Kathy and Wayne Caldwell and Myron and Liz Granberry. Other loved ones whose lives have been forever changed include aunts/uncles Vickie and Carrol Raymond, Norman Jr. and Deborah Dent, Jeanette Miller, Rachel and Robert Hill, Steven and Patricia Dent, Becky and Harry Rose, Lilmah and Charles Wyatt, Kim and Ray Smith and Clint and Marcia Granberry.
His many cousins mourning their loss include Tony, Chris, Brian and Steven Raymond; Gina Knight; Jennie Pangel; Ned Dent III; Heather Massey; Deedra Page; David Lassen Jr; Brodie and Cody Hill; Stephanie Beauford; Stacie McGahee; Steven Dent Jr; Billie Dixon Jr; Eric Wyatt; Jessica Head; Nikki and Kenny Whitehead; and Sadie Granberry.
Because he was “baby of the baby” of his mother’s large family, he was raised more closely with many second generation cousins. Though too numerous to list in this space, he was very close to Gabrielle (Raymond) Frietas; TJ Knight and Ashley and Karibeth Page. These were his “running buddies,” when around the family; and they will sorely miss Jeffery.
Jeffery will be greeted by his maternal grandparents, Bobbie and Norman Dent, where he can continue learning to strum the guitar with Paw Paw, and entertain Nanny with his wit.
A private memorial service has been scheduled for the family to share stories and celebrate the life of Jeffery Glen Granberry.
