Among the many colleagues remembering technical consultant Jeff Brock today were the attorneys at law firm Fletcher Heald & Hildreth, who wrote on their blog that Brock was “a warm, humble and sincere gentleman, with a wry sense of humor and a passionate love for the Atlanta Braves.”
As Radio World reported yesterday, Brock passed away Sunday at age 51.
FHH continued: “A brilliant engineer, Jeff had a deft writing touch and an amazingly active, creative and encyclopedic mind. We never knew him to refuse help to his many friends on all matters large or small, reimbursable or not, and regardless of his own workload.” They recalled that he and Stu Graham operated a successful LPFM station out of their offices and hosted an annual barbeque outing at the NAB Show.
“Jeff was a class act and the people in his firm reflect that class. We will miss Jeff a great deal, but as Stu tells us, there will be a lot of terrific stations in heaven once Jeff arrives and performs his magic.”
Two memorial services are set for Brock.
The first will be in Alpharetta, Ga., this Saturday, according to an announcement from Graham Brock Inc. The family will receive visitors from 1 to 2 p.m., with a service to follow at 2. The location is Southcare Cremation and Funeral Society, 2260 Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta.
There will also be a service on St. Simons Island, Ga., on Nov. 3, with details yet to be finalized.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that remembrances be sent to the American Cancer Society or the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia.
