Jeffrey Craig England, of Exeter, NH, died peacefully on Saturday morning, May 12th, 2018 at the Genesis Exeter Center with his faithful friend, Shanti by his side. He had been fighting cancer among other ailments for several months.
Jeff was born in Sharon, CT on July 22, 1952. He lived most of his life in the nearby town of North Canaan, CT before moving to Kingston, NH and eventually to Exeter. He graduated from Berkshire School in Sheffield, MA and attended Springfield College in Springfield, MA and the University of New Hampshire in Durham.
His parents, Robert A. England and Ilmi S. England of Kingston, predeceased him. He is survived by his sister, Heather England Smith, and her husband, Peter A. Smith, of Exeter. He has also left behind many friends who called him "Pastor" Jeff because of his care and concern for their spiritual and personal welfare. He greatly enjoyed talking and joking with them, watching his beloved Yankees play baseball, listening to CDs, and playing video games.
Thank you to all of the wonderful caregivers who helped him through his medical issues. God bless you!
