September 9, 1967 - February 8, 2015
Jeffrey “Jeff” Doyle Kattner, age 47, of Carrollton, Texas died on February 8th 2015. He is survived by his wife, Leslie Marie Hess, one son, Dylan Smith, one step-daughter, Karlie Hess, and many very close friends who miss him dearly.
He is known as being a child at heart; sweet, giving, loyal and dedicated to those he loved. Jeff loved his work and spent his time on the job teaching others how to lead while learning it himself. He never met a stranger; giving a friendly ‘hello’ to everyone he met & always turning them into new friends. No matter how Jeff felt he always kept a smile on his face and sought to bring happiness to those around him. When he wasn’t working he enjoyed watching UFC, MMA, the Cowboys & Patriots football games, playing games on the Wii or passing time with friends & family. Jeff would try everything at least once and always kept an optimistic spirit. He leaves behind his dog, Chance, who he loved.
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing
times and bright and
I’d like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.
“I want people to remember that Jeff had such a zest for life; unfortunately it was cut short. He was an honest, giving and trusting man that will be missed deeply and passionately.” ~ Leslie Hess; wife
