On Saturday, June 25, 2016, we said goodbye to Jeff Cromar. A compassionate and gentle man, Jeff's huge heart powered him through half marathons as well as his lengthy battle with cancer.\nJeff was happiest fishing with his brothers, decorating his home for holidays, watching the Utes, sharing a laugh and a beer with his childhood buddies, and most importantly, spending time with his wife and boys, Julian (11) and Justin (9).\nJeff was born May 14, 1968 to Howard C. and Darlene Madsen Cromar. He married Leticia (Rosales) Cromar in 2002. Jeff loved Leticia and demonstrated it through countless acts, including caring for a rat outside their first home at her request and hauling armloads of pots from their yard to their basement each winter so she didn't have to see them die. A true warrior, Leticia returned his love and fought tirelessly to find Jeff life-extending treatment, unwilling to surrender him to cancer. She was by his side through 3 years of treatment until he took his last breath.\nA beloved husband, father, brother, and friend, we will miss Jeff profoundly, taking comfort in the knowledge that we are all better people for having known and loved him.\nJeff's family thanks Dr. Sato and his team at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, particularly Dr. Gonsalves; Dr. Scott Samuelson at the Salt Lake Clinic; and everyone at Bank of American Fork for their compassion and support through Jeff's illness.\nIn lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Jeff's sons at any Bank of American Fork location.\nServices will be held on 07/01/2016 at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley, 1007 W. South Jordan Pkwy. (10600 S). Visitation from 9:30 - 10:45. Funeral service at 11:00am.
