Jeffrey Alley


Jeffrey J. Alley died peacefully at the age of 63 on April 11, 2017. Jeff was born in Oak Bluffs on Sept. 9, 1953, to Norman Alley and Elsie Sennett. He attended Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School.

Jeff was a good mechanic who loved working on cars or anything with a motor. Being a lifelong Islander, he enjoyed hunting and shellfishing. Commercial fishing took him off the coast of Oregon and Alaska.

Jeff was a kind and caring man, with a great sense of humor. He grew close to his great-niece Baylee when she was young. They spent a lot of time outdoors working in the garden. They also took walks and rode bikes around the neighborhood.

Jeffrey will be truly missed by his friends and family. He is survived by his brothers Robert J. Francis (Bev) and Kenneth J. Francis (Jean), and sisters Charlene A. Alley and Norma S. Marathas; by his nieces Dena, Shawna, LuAnne, and Karen; his nephews, Robert, Kenneth, and William; several great-nieces and -nephews; and his good friend Billy. He was predeceased by his parents and his nephew Scott.

There will be a private service at a later date.
