Jeffrey David Lauffer, 47, of Everson, passed on Wednesday, May 30, at Presbyterian Hospital after being LifeFlighted on May 28 as a result of a motorcycle accident.

In addition, he played trumpet in the concert band. He was also an Eagle Scout and served in the National Guard for six years, earning a medal for expert marksmanship.
