Mr. Muntz was born March 28, 1983 in Batavia, a son of Roy and Shelly (Waite) Muntz, Jr. of Oakfield.

He greatly enjoyed fishing, riding his wheeler, and his dogs.  Jeff had an incredible sense of humor.  He was a practical jokester who loved to laugh and make others laugh.  He had a heart of gold, and would help anyone he could. 


Jeff will be remembered for his belief that you only live once, for his love of pizza, and most of all, for his smile.
