UPDATED MAY 5th
It is with great sadness that I share with you the sudden passing of Jeff Dawson. Discovery Bay’s Harbormaster, friend, DB Lion, community volunteer and leader… a huge part of Discovery Bay was lost Easter Sunday.
Jeff’s brief illness took a turn for the worst Sunday morning, and he passed suddenly. Jeff leaves behind two beautiful children and a community of friends.
On Saturday, April 30th, close to 500 people gathered at the Discovery Bay Country Club for Jeff Dawson’s Celebration of Life. Jeff’s closest friends, from past and present, shared wonderful memories and photos of Jeff – the wonderful friend and loving father he was.
On Sunday, May 1st, The Patriot Jet Team performed a Six ship Fly By in honor of Jeff at 5:12 pm. Two jets first, then four – all with smoke – one then did the “missing man” pull out, a moving tribute to Discovery Bay’s finest: Jeff Dawson
Jeff Dawson was a great Discovery Bay leader, and will be missed tremendously. Feel free to share your thoughts and feelings here (click the comment link above) and we will share these with his family.
