Jeff Mont-Eton Dies 



Jeff, or Duke as known by many, first graced this world via the sunny California beaches. After moving from San Francisco to Nevada with brother Mark and mother Beverly, his mother met the man whom she was destined for—Charles Milk. Charles would quickly be known as Dad and was always the smartest man Duke had ever known. Shortly after the birth of brother John, the five moved to California where his third brother Darren was born. In 1971, the family then moved to Hereford, AZ.

As a teenager, Duke loved to hang out with Hollywood actors, revisit the beaches of Cali, play many sports, and work out. It was during this time that he developed his strong work ethic, one of his most known traits. This was done by herding cattle, building fences, running Bob Watkins’ old car wash, and moving streams/washes in Carr Canyon, stone by stone, at the whim of the late Billy G. (Mrs. Wilhelmena Ganders)

While attending Buena High School, Duke met his first wife, Jill (Clement, Curtis). They would go on to have three sons—Scott, Mikey, and Chase—before ultimately separating. Before long, Duke met Joyce, the sweet gal whom he would spend the rest of his life with. With Joyce, his family grew even bigger with step-children Jaime and Mandy.


Jeff was always the hardest worker around, whether in laying block as he did after high school, working the ranks for over 30 years at Pepsi-Cola for the Schade family, playing ball, earning multiple belts in various martial arts, or earning his degree from U of A South.

While Duke was not a man of many words, he was a man of deep thought. He was a man worthy of the respect bestowed him by friends and colleagues and always showed respect to others. He kept the cleanest pool and coldest beer around for when his friends and family would get together at his home.

Toward the end, Jeff was able to enjoyably accomplish what mattered most—spend time with his loving wife and family and friends; golf in many tournaments, play with grandson Drake who was the light in his eyes; see his Oakland Raiders get a fantastic start to the 2016 season; and drive a real sweet Denali truck.

Jeff will be sorely missed, but forever loved and fondly remembered.

Jeff leaves behind in mourning his wife Joyce; mother Bev; brothers Mark (Diann) and John; sister Jewel Marie (Butch); sons Scott, Mikey, Chase (Sandra), and Jaime; daughter Mandy; grandchildren Cara, Devin, Gavin, and Isiah, James Darren and Drake; nephew Trooper; nieces Vanessa, Candace, and Makayla; great-granddaughter Alice; and many more family and friends.


Jeff is preceded in death by brother; Darren, father; Norm, and Dad; Chuck.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 5:00 till 8:00 pm at Hatfield Funeral Home, 830 S. Hwy 92, Sierra Vista. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 am on Friday, October 21, 2016 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints church, 2100 E. Yaqui, Sierra Vista. There will also be a short viewing at the church on Friday from 9:00 till 10:00. Interment will follow at Cochise Memory Gardens Cemetery, Charleston Rd. Sierra Vista.

"Truly great friends are hard to find, 

difficult to leave, and impossible to forget"  ~ G. Randolph


 It's hard to believe that we have been out of high school as long as we have.  There have been many changes, experiences, heartaches and triumphs in our lives over the years.  Let's face it, high school was a very strange time for us; hormones, self-discovery, uncertainty, friendships, cliques ... but that's all in the past.  We've grown, changed and endured.  We should be called the BHS Family of 1979 

  "Our Friends Are A Very Important Part Of Our Lives. Treasure The Tears, TreasureThe Laughter, But Most Importantly, Treasure The Memories."  

Check out this cool BHS forum website, free to join, click here.  Good site to get your senior picture.   Another fun and free social site is: ______________________________


Standalone player

Several pages now have their own "Playlists". This one has the most songs for you to enjoy.  No need to use the POP-OUT player, unless you want to.  You will then have to turn the Playlist off on each page you go to.... Enjoy.....
