Jeffery R. Reuhl, 59 of Jefferson, died on Friday, February 21, 2020 at his home.
Jeff was born on June 29, 1960 in Fort Atkinson, WI, the son of Merlin and Harriet (Heger) Reuhl. Jeff grew up on the family farm and attended Jefferson Schools. When Jeff was 12, his father Melvin passed away and he began working on the family farm with his brothers Randy and Larry. Farming was a major part of Jeff’s life and he fulfilled the worker role well, while Randy ran the business end of the operation. He loved tractors, both modern and especially antique steam tractors. Jeff never married and kept mostly to himself but loved living and working on the farm. He was a hard worker and enjoyed watching television after the day’s labor was done. Jeff knew Christ as his Savior and he knew the Scriptures well. He had a knack for Bible history and a deep understanding of Scripture as a whole. Jeff was confident in his eternal salvation and he will be missed by those who knew him.
Jeff is survived by: his mother Harriet Kramer of Fort Atkinson; brothers Larry Reuhl of Jefferson, Randy Reuhl of Jefferson, and Dennis (Julie) Reuhl of Johnson Creek; niece Joanne Reuhl and nephew Eric Reuhl. He is also survived by a number of other relatives.
He is preceded in death by his father Merlin and stepfather William G. Kramer.
