WATERTOWN, NY —  Jeffrey G. Herron, 65, Watertown, passed away on Monday, Aug. 1, 2022.

Born Oct. 7, 1956, at the House of Good Samaritan in Watertown, NY, to James and Evelyn Herron, he graduated in 1975 from General Brown Central School.

Jeffrey worked as a Production Manager at Chapin Watermatics, Inc., and was a dedicated employee for over 30 years.

Jeff was a loving father, uncle, brother, grandfather, and friend who will be missed by many who knew him. His family and friends that he loved dearly meant the world to him. He was a very social man who loved to have a good time. He had a smile that could light up a room, a great sense of humor and a laugh that was contagious.

Jeff was known for his love of music, his guitars, woodworking, the San Francisco 49ers, and a big fan of NASCAR, especially Dale Earnhardt, Sr.

Services are being arranged at this time. Proper notification will be given once the family has definitive dates and times.
