Jeffrey Ballew Obituary

Jeffrey Dale Ballew, 61 of Kaiser, died Sunday, December 3, 2023 after an automobile accident.  Born August 6, 1962 in Columbia, MO to Larry Dale and Mary Lou (Hyde) Ballew.  On May 5, 2005, he was united in marriage to Marie Grimes who survives of the home.

Jeff was a 1980 graduate of the School of the Osage where he was active in football and track.  He worked for 40 years as a union electrician, a member of the IBEW Local 257.  Jeff retired in May 2022.

In his free time Jeff could always be found in nature.  He loved to hunt and fish and enjoyed searching for arrowheads and morel mushrooms.  Jeff never met a stranger and could make a friend anywhere he went.  He was the type to give the shirt off his back to help anyone and saved the day, time after time, for many of his loved ones.  His shining personality acted as a beacon, drawing in friends, and endearing him to all who knew him.  He will be dearly missed by all.

In addition to his wife Marie, Jeff is survived by his parents; three sons, TJ (Keri) Ballew, Kayle (Katie) Ballew, and Zion Grimes; two daughters, Valerie Davis, and Madison Hees; six grandchildren, Natalie, Kasen, Alex, Kyler, Oliver, and Grayson; one sister, Cheryl (Eddie) Furlong and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

He is preceded in death by his younger sister, Lisa Rains.
