Crip AKA Jeffrey P Rodefer - Posted By Maxx


June 12, 1962 - January 2, 2014





On November 28, 2013, Jeff posted his last status update on his Facebook page.  Being a very religious person, his status on that day was simple and elegant, the passage shown above from II Timothy 4:7.

At 5:30 AM on January 2, 2014, our friend and colleague Jeff made the final trek into the light and, no doubt, met his beloved Mother and his Saviour Jesus Christ at the Rainbow Bridge, where he was escorted into the Gates of Heaven to sit at the right side of God the Father.

He was our Team Member, and we all loved him, but, more importantly, we all respected him.  In fact, everyone who ever knew him respected him for the work he did throughout his life.  I have tried to count all the ways that he helped all of us but the list is so extensive that one loses count after awhile.  It is conservatively estimated that Crip created nearly 500 unique SMF themes, but that number may indeed be much greater.  He did this while sitting in his wheelchair and using sticks in his mouth to tap out commands on his mouse and keyboard because of the terrible accident that occurred when he was only 25 years old that paralyzed him from the neck down.

Jeff is now at peace with his disability.  In the last year, he lost both his Mother and his Father, and missed them both very much, but is now, no doubt, making themes in Heaven for his God.  He will be missed by all who loved and respected him.

On the evening of New Years Day, Jeff had a good last supper, according to his sister-in-law Connie, and then went to bed early, as was his custom.  He woke up early on the morning of January 2nd, as was also his custom, gave Connie some simple last instructions, and went back to sleep.  He never woke back up and passed at 5:30AM that morning.  According to Jeff's wishes, there will be no Funeral Service for him, and he requested that no flowers be sent or donations made in his honor.  For those who knew him, you all know that he was a simple man.  His only instruction for us was "that ZarPrime and Maxx keep my website going for as long as they can."  We will adhere to his wishes as long as we can but we may seek help from some of you who might choose to volunteer to help us.

Despite the fact that Jeff didn't want anyone to go out of their way to honor him, Connie gave me an address so that those of you who wanted to could send messages or cards of Condolence or remembrances of our friend.

Keep a copy there too.


If your offer still stands we'll move this site to your server when ready. You'll have more control of hosting then.  :)

First post fixed and now the images are linked to this site no matter where the sites is moved to.

Sure, I'll move everything soon. I'll have to do it in batches cause there's a lot to move and my net connection is slow here. They don't have real high speed in this area..or a lot of smaller towns in the US.

No rush on that. We have hosting for almost another year here.


Thanks Skhilled.  :)
