Jeffery A Denney, Finally, was able to join the much anticipated, Heavenly Family reunion on the 18th of September 2021.
Jeff’s life began 56 years ago in Blackfoot, Idaho. There, he joined his earthly family of Alan and Patricia Denney. He was the little brother to Debbie, Kathy and Terry.
Jeff graduated from Blackfoot High School and shortly after that served a mission to Glasgow Scotland for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Not long after his return, he met his eternal companion, Julee. They soon married, they were married for 34 years right up to his return home.
Jeff attended and graduated from Ricks College with a degree in Horticulture Landscape Construction Management.
Throughout Jeff’s 33-year Landscaping career, he finally landed his ideal place of employment. He was one of three Estate Caretakers for the Idaho Falls Temple. He absolutely loved his new position. He was able to use his experience and artistic talents to the beautification of not only the Idaho Falls Temple but assisting in the design and color palette of the flower gardens at the newly built Pocatello Temple.
Jeff loved designing and creating “Feel the Savior’s Love” spots around the Temple grounds. He loves his Savior Jesus Christ and he tried every day to emulate and lead as the Savior.
Jeff left behind his wife, Julee, who by the way was supposed to go first! His wonderful children whom he loves eternally, Kassidee (Logan) Phillips, Jase Denney, Kaylee Denney, Brinlee (Jacob) Smith. Most of all his sweet grandbabies, Oakley, Rider, Sage and August.
He will be greatly missed.
He was preceded in death by his father, Alan Denney, father in law, Clarence Gibson, his brother in law Chris Chapman, and nephew Jordan Chapman.
