JEFFREY ‘JEFF’ ALLAN BOLDUC, age 64, of Jefferson City, TN passed away suddenly and was welcomed into the arms of Jesus on April 16, 2023. He was a loyal employee of SumiRiko Tennessee, Inc. as an environmental engineer. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater. He was also partners with his wife in the Red Door Gallery and JV Photography Studio, where he was an amazing photographer and was just completing his final stages of Certification with PPA (Professional Photographers of America). Jeff was preceded in death by his parents, Dr. Thomas and Marilyn Bolduc of Whitewater, WI; special brother-in-law, Andy Ward of Niota, TN. He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 34 years, Vickie Ward Bolduc; father and mother-in-love, Phillip and Barbara Ward of Sweetwater, TN; a brother and sister and their families, special family members among which were treasured nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, Godson, many dear and precious friends and co-workers, and many cherished children and families who came through the studio doors over the past 18 years. Jeff was a mighty man of God. He was a prayer warrior and an avid student of the Scriptures. He lived out those Scriptures in his everyday life with everyone he encountered. His love for the mountains of East Tennessee was immense. He and Vickie loved spending an afternoon there in a special place in Greenbrier where she would sit on the bank watching him fly-fish. They enjoyed and cherished life together and spent every possible moment at each other’s side. In fact, it was a very rare occasion they were ever apart. He was a dedicated, loving, and faithful husband who doted on Vickie. He was a trustworthy and reliable friend to many. He loved a good laugh and sports, especially UT basketball, football and baseball; Wisconsin Badgers football and basketball; and was a life-long fan of the Packers.
