In the on line daylily journal I just got, there is an article that says morning the loss of three great men. Jeff was on the list. Is this so. I just saw him out there this summer. I live in same town and can find no obituary.

I was told he had a massive heart attack and died three nights ago. He was one the great hybridizers of modern times and brought golden edged and eyed and edge cultivars where they are today.

Ummm wonder what elizabeth will do with all those plants of his in his greenhouse, its just she and Alex their daughter out there. They were always in the garden together I just dont now if thats where she will find peace or distress. Just to bad, and their daughter is late 20's early 30's...Im not good at that, but still young so he could not have been that old. I believe there are grandchildren/child out there but have never seen them. Just very quiet and nice. She, like Dan Hansen, a vault of daylily info in their memory as both were brought up in dayliles. Love to hear either of them start talking. Still did not see an obituary today.

Rhonda Veroeven announced on the youtube video that there were 14 hybridizers along with other members who passed away this year. She didn't name them, but that is a great loss to the society.
