We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Barkdull Funeral Home & Crematory
Jeffrey Lynn Stansberry, age 51, died unexpectedly at his residence in Westerville on Thursday, June 2, 2022.
Born September 22, 1970, in Shelby to Paul and Nancy (Hess) Stansberry, he had been a Columbus area resident since graduating from Shelby High School in 1989. Jeff continued his education majoring in Business Administration at The Ohio State University in 1994. He earned his CPA and then a master’s degree in Taxation from Capital University Law School in 2009. Jeff landed his “dream job” as Tax Manager in Corporate Finance with OhioHealth in 2013. Jeff was always a numbers guy!
Jeff was a member of the Trinity United Methodist Church of Shelby, and the treasurer of a local baseball writers' group. Jeff was a huge sports enthusiast and loved attending every sporting event he could. He was a season ticket holder for the Columbus Clippers baseball team and always sought out the best seat in the park: right behind home plate! A huge music enthusiast, and #1 fan of The Dave Matthews Band, Jeff loved his music live and loud!
Above all else, Jeff loved his family and friends and treasured every moment that he spent with them. “Stans” will live in our hearts forever.
He is survived in death by his loving parents, siblings Lyle Stansberry, and sister Debbie (Todd) Hardesty both of Delaware; nieces, Emma (Nick) Phillips of Delaware, Claire (Chris) Solomonides of Charlotte, North Carolina, and Lillian Hardesty of Delaware; great-niece Harper Solomonides; and Jeff's faithful canine companion, Charlie.
