Published 3:00 am Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Jeffrey Joseph Harbuck, 60, a resident of Daphne, Alabama, and former resident of Brundidge, Alabama, entered into heavenly rest on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. He was born September 4, 1957 in Englewood, New Jersey and is a 1975 graduation of Pike Liberal Arts School in Troy, Alabama. He attended both Auburn University and Troy State University and worked in hospitality/restaurant management, where his affable smiles, quick wit, and charming personality made him the best at customer service.  His most important and honorable task was caring for his parents in their later years.

In March 2016, Jeff suffered a stroke and was hospitalized for six months.  He worked through rehabilitation for the next two years, but another devastating stroke on April 13, 2018 would prove to be his final setback.

Jeff is preceded in death by his beloved father, Joseph E. Harbuck, Jr., of Daphne; his paternal grandparents, Joseph E., Sr. and Ethel Harbuck, of Nyack, New York; and his maternal grandparents David Escar, Sr. and Helen Marley, of Brundidge, Alabama.
