Jeffrey “Jeff” Edward Hempstead, age 58, of Anaconda, MT passed away on July 22, 2019 peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Jeff met and married the love of his life, Lois Anderson, January 26th, 1987 and they had two sons, Ryan and Eric. They later separated but remained very close friends. Jeff was employed by AFFCO Inc. for over 30 years. As a pattern maker molder, he received many awards for no absences or injuries. He was the foreman of his afternoon crew and was highly respected by his bosses and crew. It is possible his name is on many lampposts all over Montana. Jeff and the AFFCO crew designed many beautiful lamp posts and other designs.
In the last few years Jeff’s health declined and he fought hard to recover, but the Lord need him, so he took him home. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends. Until we meet again-fly free…
Jeff is survived by his mother: Jean Beausoleil, sons: Ryan (Mindy) and Eric Hempstead, sisters: Jaxine Allen and Alice Ann McDonald, grandchildren: Tiana Pierce, CJ Pierce, Trevor Pierce, and Braxton Robbins, and 1 great-granddaughter: Lorelai Annabelle, nephew: Blake (Melissa) Hempstead, nieces: Bobbie Jean Allen, Nicole McDonald, and Heidi Uts, and numerous nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews. Also, special friends: Doug Lorello, Delmer Green, Bruce Chiddix, David Swanson, Lisa Funston Hayes, and Lois Anderson.
Jeff was proceeded in death by his father: Jack, stepfather: Fuzzy, brother: Jim Hempstead, nephew: Justin Hempstead, and grandparents: Austin and Hattie Hempstead, and Nick Zounick.
Services will be held on Monday, July 29th at 11:00 A.M. at the Holy Family Catholic Church, in Anaconda, MT. Please offer condolences or share a memory of Jeff.
