Jeff grew up and attended school in Mountain Grove, and graduated with the Mountain Grove High School class of 1990. Jeff was self-employed most his life, driving a dump truck and doing farm work. Jeff loved the outdoors and his favorite place in the world to be was the farm. He called it “his little piece of heaven”. His daughter, Meagan Nicole, was born on March 6, 2000, and Jeff loved spending time with his family and friends.

Jeff also loved old hot rod cars. He built and restored many old cars, and he was extremely talented at it. He enjoyed taking his cars to the drag strip and also to classic car shows. He was a witness to everyone that he could be. He posted verses on Facebook, and shared the gospel with anyone that he would run in to.

Jeff was preceded in death by his grandparents, Lester and Alta Freeman, and Lester and Edna Carder, his father, Kenneth Carder, and his sister, Sheila Carder.
