Jeffery Wayne Batte, born August 4, 1974, was found deceased on December 24, 2022, at age 48. The cause of death is unknown. He was survived by his wife, Melissa, and three children, Jordan Arender, Anna“Rainbow” Batte, Andrew“ Drewster” Batte, his parents, Larry and Judy Batte, and siblings, Belinda Ainsworth and Tracy Wamble.

Jeffery was a heavy equipment operator by trade. He grew up “in the woods” working in the family logging business. From a very early age, he learned to run all of the heavy equipment on the job. His daddy said he was one of the best cutter operators he'd ever seen.

He really enjoyed the outdoors and going fishing. He was known as a bit of a daredevil and loved to ride motorcycles and four-wheelers and competed in dirt bike racing and mud bogs when he was young. He even attempted bull riding once in a rodeo which was a bit harder than riding cows on the farm. He didn't try that again.

If you knew Jeffery then you knew he truly had a good heart, along with his share of troubles. But he deeply loved his family. He always tried to make people laugh, going to great lengths to do so. He tended to bring home a few too many stray animals because he couldn't pass them by. He loved to help people and would give you the shirt off his back. He surprised a lot of folks with his knowledge of the Bible and ability to quote scriptures. He loved to visit with people and so many in the community have reached out to the family and shared kind words about Jeff, or some good stories, something he did for them, or the last visit. Those memories are greatly appreciated.

Jeffery was baptized at Christian Life Fellowship Church and attended his last service on Sunday, December 18, and enjoyed a Christmas meal with his church family. When we remember his death it will be surrounded by the season that we also remember the birth of our living hope and Savior, Jesus Christ. I think he would be glad about that. Our family would like to thank all of you for your prayers, visits, and calls, and for loving Jeffery over the years.
