Jeffrey James “Jeff” Streifel, 63, of Moorhead, MN, passed away on June 29, 2022, in his home in Moorhead. He was born on May 20, 1959, in Harvey, ND, to Henry and Delores (Heilman) Streifel.
Jeff attended Esmond Public Schools. He married the love of his life, Terri Martinez, on December 3, 2005, in Talent Oregon. Together, they had four children. He worked in various occupations throughout his life and enjoyed new adventures and seeing the country.
