Jeffrey C. Kotzur of Mahopac, NY passed away unexpectedly on July 1, 2021 at the age of 71. He was born on December 28, 1949 in the Bronx, of the late Walter and Marion (Wylie) Kotzur.

Our Dad can be described as the tall quiet guy who rocked the suspenders. He was hard-working, and cherished his family above all else. He loved spending time with his grandchildren as much as a Pop could. He was a master electrician his entire career. He was selfless, generous, and a kind soul. He would give anyone the shirt off of his back. Our Dad really wanted to make America great again.
Jeff is survived by his children Jeffrey Kotzur, Alexandra Graniero (Marc), Adam Kotzur, and Rachel Kotzur; grandchildren Joseph and Aidan O’Connor, and Marc Graniero, Jr.; his brothers Frank (Susan) Kotzur, Greg (Nancy) Kotzur, Chris (Dorian) Kotzur; his sisters Josefa Turner, Leslie Galbraith, April Kotzur, and Stacey (Robert) Kotzur; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Clarise and Frank McGourty; many nieces and nephews. In addition to his wife Coleen, Jeff is predeceased by his twin sons Luke and Clint, and his sister Susan Barrett.
