Jeffrey Surgeson

May 2, 1995 ~ November 16, 2020 (age 25)


Jeffrey Surgeson, 25, of Defiance, Ohio passed away November 16, 2020. Jeff was born in Toledo, Ohio and was a graduate of Liberty Center High School. He was employed as a cell one rotor grit blast operator at Indigo Blasting and Painting in Montpelier, Ohio. He loved the job and was proud of it. Everyone who truly knew Jeff could clearly see that Jeff's entire world was his daughter. He adored her and loved being her dad. Jeff had many passions over his young life, including a love for drawing, tattoos, and gaming. He was also an avid Ohio State Buckeye fan. However, no passion was greater than his love of making music. He was a self-taught piano player and rap artist, and worked hard at his craft whenever he could. He will be deeply missed.

Jeff is survived by his daughter Marina Surgeson; mother Tanya (Richard) Bayless; father Rick Surgeson; siblings: Daniel (Ceanna) Surgeson, Joseph Surgeson, Kyrstn Hunt, Amie (James) Flickenger, and Brian Foote; grandparents Raymond and Faye Hunt; aunt Michelle (John) Laubach and uncle Kerry (Louann) Surgeson.  He was preceded in death by his brother Daimyen Bayless.
