Jeffrey Lee Willoughby

 

Jeffrey Lee Willoughby of Rio Rancho, NM went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 11, 2022.

Jeff was born in Decatur, Illinois on July 28, 1955, to E. Lee and Lorrie (Lillibridge) Willoughby. Jeff graduated from Marion A. Peterson High School in Sunnyvale, CA in 1973, attended San Jose Bible College in San Jose, CA for three years, and went on to attend Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, CA. While at Point Loma, he met the love of his life, Linda, who survives him.

Jeff worked for 40 years in the semi-conductor industry with his last position being that of a production supervisor for SUMCO USA Corporation and retiring in 2017.  

Jeff had a great passion for learning especially reading various religious books and anything pertaining to his love of God and country. He also enjoyed contributing opinion pieces to the local newspaper and family road trips to Colorado and California. Jeff loved all animals; but, especially his three dogs, Rico, Sammy and Annie Mae.

Jeff was active in his church for many years serving as the media operator for Rio Vista Nazarene Church in Rio Rancho. Jeff admired the bible passage from the book of Philippians 4-6, “Don’t worry about anything, instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all he has done.”

Jeff was preceded in death by his infant son, Scotty, and his father, Lee Willoughby. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Linda; his mother, Lorrie (Lorraine) Willoughby; his older brother, Gary Willoughby (Kathy); younger sisters, Lori Mapes (Steve) and Janet McNerney (Shaun) in addition to numerous nieces and nephews.
