Cecil “Pete” Boyd Jeffries passed

away August 19, 2013, at his home.

Services were held Saturday, at New

Salem Funeral home followed by

burial in Six Mile Cemetery. The

family greeted friends on. Friday,

at the chapel. Pete was born Jan.

12, 1936, in independence, Mo.,

at the family home. Pete attended

Peace Dale school. He retired from

Universal Construction Company in

1997 and was a member of Laborers

Local 264 for 22 years. On Jan. 8,

1960, Pete married Pat Coen. They

made their home in Sibley, Mo., and

were blessed with four sons, Steven

Boyd, David Scott, Troy Shannon and

Travis Shawn. Pete was a simple man

with a heart of gold and never knew

a stranger. He enjoyed antagonizing

anyone he met and was sure to bring

a smile to your face. He had many

sayings that most had never heard

until they crossed paths with Pete. His

greatest joys were his wife, boys and

grandchildren. He enjoyed listening

and playing Blue Grass music,

mowing, plowing gardens and most of

all being surrounded by his family for

Sunday dinner. His prize possession

was his 1970 one-ton truck, the loud

exhaust and silhouette girls on the mud

flaps were trade marks that all knew

him by. Pete was the seventh born of

nine children to Pearly and Ethel Mae

Jeffries. He was preceded in death

by his parents, brothers, Gale, Nile,

Luther, sister, Mildred and daughterin-

law, Carla Jeffries. He is survived

by wife, Pat of the home, sons, Steven

of KCMO, David (Christine) of Sibley,

Troy of Sibley, and Travis (Jonna) of

Sibley; grandchildren, Rachel (Jason),

Derek, Samantha, Shannon, Trevor,

Jana (Garrett) and Daniel, great



Lane and Finnley;


brothers, William, Orville, Harold,



Nelson and their spouses, numerous

nieces and nephews and countless

friends. He will be missed by all.
