"MUD" 2008 Obituary


MUDFORD 2008-07-03 published
Victim remembered as hard-working, generous
By Ashley HOUSE, Sun Media, Thurs., July 3, 2008
Simcoe -- Friends and family of Jeffrey MARREEL say there was so much more to him than his drug addiction and criminal record.
"He had a heart of gold," said his mother, Margaret MARREEL.
Delhi native Jeffrey MARREEL, 36, collapsed and died after being Tasered by Norfolk Ontario Provincial Police in Fisher's Glen on June 23. Ontario's Special Investigations Unit is probing the case.
Like most little boys, MARREEL was a handful, Margaret said.
She used to work in the tobacco fields in Aylmer when MARREEL was young.
"It was the summer that song The Streak was popular," she recalled.
"And sure enough you'd see Jeff, he was only two years old or so, but he'd be running through the tobacco field naked. I'd find a sock here, a sock there, his shorts over there. He was a handful."
Friends still can't believe he's gone.
"We've been Friends for 20 years," said Ron MUDFORD, who met MARREEL in high school. "We did everything together, camping, concerts, living together. He was a great guy and my best friend. It's like losing a brother."
Those close to him describe him as hard-working, compassionate and generous.
"He'd stay with me for awhile, trying to get away from the drugs," MUDFORD said, adding MARREEL was ashamed of his habit and would be clean for months before something would trigger him to use again. "I never had to ask him for grocery money or rent because he just gave it to me."
Margaret remembers her son's generosity following a house fire in Delhi, years ago.
"The guy came out of the house without any shoes on and Jeff went and gave him a pair of his," she said. "That was Jeff. Anything you needed, he was right there with it. You moving? He was helping."
The Special Investigations Unit has assigned 13 officers to the case. They continue to interview witnesses: and Friends this week.
"Civilian witnesses: who have come forward as a result of the appeal of local media… have contributed to the investigation," said Special Investigations Unit spokesperson John YOANNOU.
