Jeffrey Paul Ainge

Our loving Son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend Jeffrey "Jeffer" Paul Ainge passed away peacefully December 22, 2012 at UVRMC from complications of Muscular Dystrophy surrounded by his family. He was born March 22, 1960 in Provo UT to Ray and Glenda Ainge. 

Jeff grew up in Provo UT and graduated from Provo High in 1978. He was employed at Reams Grocery Store for 20 years where he was a proud bagger. 

Jeff was an avid sports fan and had a deep love for the Utah Jazz and BYU. His favorite color was blue and when he was 19 bought his first and only blue truck. He was a devoted member of the LDS church with his most recent calling as a greeter. He took out his endowments in the Provo LDS Temple in 1985 and was later sealed to his parents in 2000. 

Jeff loved to go for long rides and loved to just sit and visit with family and friends. He fought Muscular Dystrophy for over 30 years, was never a complainer and fought hard to the very last minute. 

Jeff is survived by his loving mother Glenda Ainge of Provo UT, one sister, and many Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. He is preceded in death by his Father LeRay Arthur Ainge, his grandparents Glen and Veoan Lee, and William and Sarah Ainge. 

Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday December 29, 2012 at the Marrott Meadows LDS Chapel 102 North 2400 West, Provo, UT. Family and friends may call Saturday morning from 9:30- 10:45 a.m. prior to services. Interment will be in the Provo City Cemetery. Condolences to the family may be emailed to info@bergmortuary.com.

Jeff  was very outgoing and would call me and Karen (Jones) Harper all the time to see what was up. Later, he  was in the  BYU ward of a fellow teacher when I worked at the MTC. He came to all my MTC work parties  and all the teachers in my "zone" loved him!   Later, when I worked in Public Health in an area related to disabilities, I realized what  a pioneer Jeff was for inclusion and what a true advocate he was for himself.  Later when my mom passed away he came to her funeral.... he was a very supportive friend.

I appreciated Jeff.  He was always genuine, and friendly to me. I am better having had him as a friend.
