It is with great regret and sadness that the Behan, Krieg, and Almanzar Families announce the passing of Jeffrey S. Behan. Jeffrey passed away unexpectedly at home in Grahamsville on October 28, 2022. He was 54 years old.
Jeffrey was the son of the late Eleanor and Charles Behan.
Jeffrey retired after 25 years with the New York State Department of Corrections, as a Correctional Officer at the Sullivan Correctional Facility. Jeffrey enjoyed spending time working with his excavator and doing odd jobs. He enjoyed hunting and taking fishing trips, especially to Florida on his nephew Josh and niece Rachel's boat. Whether in the Keys or on the Gulf of Mexico, Jeff enjoyed getting the line wet and reeling in the big one.
Jeffrey never went too many places without his side kick, his Red Irish Setter Maggie, who will surely miss him. Jeffrey will be missed by his large family and his many friends whom would often be hanging out in the garage.
