    Jeffrey Brian Headley was born on August 10, 1987, to Catherine Goggles and Houston Headley in Lander, Wy. He attended Wyoming Indian Schools and graduated in 2006. He worked for a short time with McGarvin & Moberly Construction, but his true passion was working with children who loved him at Shoshone and Arapaho Headstart. 

    Jeffrey was an avid LA Lakers and Ohio State Buckeyes fan. He loved catching basketball and football games, especially if one of his loved ones was playing. He loved spending time with all of his family & friends, and had a special relationship with everyone. He also enjoyed trying his luck at the casino. 

    Jeffrey was baptized Episcopalian and believed strongly in his Northern Arapaho Traditional ways, participating in Sundance and sweats. 

    Jeffrey’s laugh could be heard from miles away. He always had a smile on his face and showed respect and love to everyone he came across. His love and light will be deeply missed.

    Jeffrey is survived by his mother, Cathy Jo Headley, Godparents Keith Chavez, Shannon Glenmore,  Shelly Trosper, and Renee Headley. Sundance Grandpa Vernon Harris.
