He is preceded in death by mother Clara Nell and father Wallace I. Robinson.Jeff was born on Dec. 13, 1968 in Milton, FL. In his 20s, Jeff identified as a writer, a cook, a punk rocker. In the early ’90s he moved to Mpls where he continued on his culinary path at several area restaurants. In 2011 he married the love of his life on a crisp and joyous fall evening. Jeff was a chef, gardener, bicyclist and music & book lover. He loved animals and is now reunited with several of his pets. He was kind, empathetic and gracious, with a dry, mischievous sense of humor. He will be eternally remembered for his quiet, welcoming smile, his sweet demeanor, and the many dishes he created and lovingly served. A Memorial Service is planned for Tue., Nov. 11, 2014 at Hiawatha Church, 4155 41st Ave S, Mpls, with a celebration of Jeff’s life to follow at Northbound Smokehouse Brewpub. All are welcome.
