Jeffrey Mark Chaffin

WHEELERSBURG-Jeffrey Mark Chaffin, 62, of Wheelersburg, Ohio passed away Monday, April 6, 2020 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Jeff was born to the late Donald and Norma (Balzhiser) Chaffin on December 2, 1957 in Cincinnati, Ohio; grew up in Owensville graduating from Clermont Northeastern High School in 1976. While in high school, he met the love of his life and best friend, Kimberly (Lawson) Chaffin. They spent the last 45 years side by side and recently celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary in March. A 1980 graduate from Wilmington College with a BA in accounting, Jeff immediately began employment as an Accountant for Mullins Construction, eventually becoming a co-owner. He had a steadfast passion for Wheelersburg United Methodist Church working with youth and teaching High School Sunday School for 38 years alongside his wife and was affectionately known as “The Gum Man.” He was actively involved in Wheelersburg Little League for 13 years coaching baseball and softball and served as Little League Treasurer. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, Craig (Nicole) Chaffin; two daughters, Kelly (Marcus) Williams and Stephanie Chaffin and one grandchild, Lincoln Williams and by his siblings Brad (Susie) Chaffin, Donna Chaffin-Crandall, Maria (Scott) Jolly and several nieces and nephews. Graveside services will be held Thursday, April 9, 2020, under the direction of Harrison-Pyles Funeral Home with the Reverend Perry Prosch officiating. The service will be live streamed via the ‘Kim Jeff Chaffin’ Facebook account. A celebration of Jeff’s life will be held at a later date for family, friends and acquaintances.

Chaffin Family, Some of the best people we know are those who live quietly obedient to the Lord; Jeff was one of those people and a role model for us all. Until we see him again, we will miss the gentle kindness of our friend and neighbor and are so hoping that our forever homes will be just down the street from each other. With much love from our family to yours...

I had the privilege to work for Jeff for 3 years. He was a truly GOOD guy. He was honest, trustworthy, kind, and a true friend to many. He loved to do random acts of kindness and never wanted praise or recognition. He was very hardworking and completely dedicated to the company, even through the pain and sickness of cancer and the treatments he endured to bravely fight it. He loved his family tremendously and was extremely proud of all of them. He loved his Lord and savior, Jesus Christ and his church family. We could all aspire to be a little more like him. We respected him very much and he will be missed by Tom and I.
