Jeffery James Seneca, of Pleasantville, New York, died peacefully on April 17th, 2020, from complications associated with the coronavirus. He was 64.

Jeff lived a full life filled with ‘abbondanza.’

In the 1970s Jeff and his brother Drew made their way from New York to California as a successful guitar duo performing original music. Jeff wrote timeless songs he recorded and played professionally into the next decade.

In later years Jeff became an award-winning wildlife photographer and accomplished birder whose great respect for nature inspired others to live more thoughtfully. He embraced holidays, especially Christmas, and relished the opportunity to share his collection of seasonal decorations. He was full of intrigue and surprises, and even managed to acquire the title of Lord in Glencoe, Scotland despite never having visited the country.

Jeff was born on October 23, 1955 to his pre-deceased parents Andrew and Marge. He is survived by his wife Christine, whom he met on 2-4-78 while performing with his band at the Colonial Tavern in Hawthorne, NY. They shared 36 beautiful years of marriage and created a loving family with their children, Jeffery Jr. (43) and Christopher (34). Jeff cherished his in-laws, Lisa and Geno, his daughters-in-law, Laura and Amisha, his grandchildren, Gabriella and Hunter, and the extended network of nephews, cousins, relatives and friends with whom he created the memories we hold in our hearts.

Jeff was generous until the end, caring, kindhearted, spontaneous, and fun. We are devastated at his departure, but he left a treasure trove of artifacts and remembrances that will lighten the lives of those who are still here and yet to come. We could have only asked for more time, though it would never have been enough for those who loved him.

We all knew Jeff as someone who was ‘there’ for us, which makes it especially difficult that we cannot gather and be ‘there’ for him right now. When this plague is over we will hold a Catholic Mass and celebration to commemorate his life. In lieu of flowers please consider supporting coronavirus relief efforts through the American Red Cross, and to respect our loss and Jeff’s selflessness his family asks everyone to remain aware of social distancing and public health guidelines.
