Jeffrey Alan Bullock died Thursday, June 9, 2016. Friends told SFGN he died of congestive heart failure.

Bullock was 66.

“He was a great person,” Scott Rydman commented on Facebook. “A very humble man. Every time I look at the plant he gave me I will remember him.”

Bullock worked as a chef for Beefcakes, a North Andrews Avenue restaurant. Condolences poured in to the Serenity Chapel in Margate after his passing.

“We miss you terribly!,” wrote Bob Makinen and Duane Cipollini, on Serenity’s website. “We will think of you every time we see a bromeliad or have dinner at Beefcakes. Rest in  Peace, Love Bob and Duane.”

Writes David Wessin and Alberto Tovar:

“Where to start... Jeffery was my best friend, was our family. The emptiness we feel in our hearts is a place where you will always remain in our hearts. The time we spent with you are precious memories, and if you think about it, that's what life is about. Special moments with family and friends, and you were family. I have never connected with anyone in this world like we connected. Not one bad word in almost 12 years of friendship. I am fortunate for having met you and will probably never have a friendship like this again. You taught us all so much, how to live life, enjoy each day and live life with no regrets. You will be greatly missed my dear friend, until we are reunited again in paradise, we love you, I love you!
