Jeffery Pace

Jeffery David Pace was born on May 30, 1980, in Monroe, Michigan. He was the only son born from the union of Roger Pace and Theresa (Cousino) Pace. Jeffery attended school through the Erie Mason School district.

Family was of the utmost importance to Jeff.   He truly loved and adored his children.   He enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his family. He loved his family deeply.

Jeff was extremely mechanical and talented.   It was no secret that he spent a lot of time “on vacation”. Jeff, however, made the most of a difficult situation.   It was during this time away that he proudly obtained his welding certificate.   When he put his mind to it, Jeff could fix anything.    He was a welder by trade, and he prided himself in the welding techniques he acquired over the years.

Jeff had a great sense of humor and was known for his quirky comments to lighten up anyone’s day.   His most famous phrases were “Tighten up”, “You got some?”, “Mind your own”, and "It's cause I'm a Pace, thats why".   He had a caregiver’s heart and would do anything for anyone.

Jeffery “Jeff” David Pace, age 41, of LaSalle, passed away at home unexpectedly on Monday; April 11, 2022.   His passing was preceded by his parents and all of his grandparents.

To cherish his memory, he leaves four beloved children: Jaycee, Ethan, Ella, and Paislee; two sisters: Lori (Brian) Liedel and Desiree Pace; three nieces: Kati, Mollie, and Emma; two nephews: Caleb and Noah; and one great nephew: Clayton.
