Jeffery Irvin Lackey


ASQ 1506 is sad to announce the passing of one of the sections greatest leaders and good friend. We offer our sincerest condolences to his family.


Mr. Lackey is a loving husband, father, and grandfather Jeffery (Jeff) Irvin Lackey, of Saint Simons Island, Georgia was surrounded by his family at his passing on Tuesday, April 17, 2018.


Left to cherish Jeff’s memories are his loving wife of forty-nine years, Bobbi Lackey of Saint Simons Island, GA; his daughter, Jil Lackey of Brunswick, GA; a son and daughter-in-law, Jay and Rebecca Lackey of Andover, MA; his grandson Spencer Jeffery and granddaughter Greta Jane.


Jeff received his BS in physics from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and MSE in engineering from the University of Michigan. 


He was a fellow in the ASQ American Society for Quality, at one time holding the Regional director position of the Jacksonville section. 


His passions included being an active Amateur Radio operator for over 60 years and a life member of the American Radio Relay League including being a past president of the Glynn County Amateur Radio Association. He was a founding member and treasurer of the Golden Isles Woodworkers Club. 


Jeff and Bobbi retired to Saint Simons Island in 2001.  He cherished the roll of self proclaimed tour guide and host to the Island’s treasures including his favorite locations, the Pier and surrounding Live Oaks.


A private celebration of Jeff’s life will be held at a future date. 


Arrangements are entrusted into the care of Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home
