Jeffrey Spring spent his life educating people, both in heart and in mind. He taught generations of students in biology and physiology for 35 years at UL Lafayette. He also worked as a coach and trainer for Education for Living for over 20 years. A lifelong aviation and model aircraft enthusiast, he spent his free time meticulously crafting and crashing radio controlled airplanes. He was also active in online R/C forums, again sharing his knowledge and experience. He loved being a grandpa (Boska Booskie) to Liv Marie, and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him.
The family requests that visitation be held Monday from 11:30 until time of service. A light reception will follow the service in The Reminisce Room at Walters Funeral Home.
