Jeffrey David Post, 66

Jeffrey David Post, 66, of Hicksville, Ohio, passed away on Sunday, February 18, 2024, at the Laurels of DeKalb, Butler, Indiana.  Jeff was born July 7, 1957, in Battle Creek, Michigan, the son of Lawrence L. and Jacqueline (Brenner) Post.  Jeff graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School in 1976, then went to work helping his father with his motel supply business, Larry Post Motel Supplies.  He also enjoyed working at Lenny’s Furniture Store for over 30 years in Fort Myers, Florida, where they wintered and enjoyed time with their very close friends.  Jeff also found joy in mowing lawns, going to ball games, attending scouting events, and being involved in the lives of his nephews and niece.  Jeff spent the last year at the Laurels of Dekalb, where he received excellent care and could be found completing puzzles – lots of puzzles.

Surviving is his mother, Jackie Post of Hicksville; brother, Randy (Shelly) Post of Hicksville; two nephews, Nicholas Post of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Alexander Post of Hicksville; niece, Samantha Post of Defiance, Ohio; and loving cousin, who he considered his brother, Scott (Chris) Brenner.  Jeff was preceded in death by his father, Larry Post.

Jeff’s family is planning a memorial service to be held at a future date this Spring.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Oberlin-Turnbull Funeral Home, 706 North Main Street, Hicksville, Ohio 43526.
