Jeffrey “Jeff” Loren Harff, age 62 of Monticello, MN, passed away February 5, 2024.

He was born on November 3, 1961 in Buffalo, MN to Loren and Carol Harff. He was baptized and confirmed at Salem Lutheran Church in Greenfield, MN, a place where his faith journey began and where he remained a member throughout his life.
