Jeffery Gilstrap, age 55, died Friday Sept. 14th of natural causes at his home in Davis. Born in Woodland, he grew up in Davis and Santa Cruz. Jeff lived an uncomplicated life, gave generously and touched the lives of many. He was a child of the 60s and insisted upon marching to his own drummer until he died.
For over 25 years Jeff ran both AM PM Taxi and the Davis Taxi Company, serving the public in Yolo County and beyond.
He is survived by his beloved cat Harvey, his sister Geyne, niece Ella, surrogate mom Jackie and devoted friends David and Alex.
An informal gathering of friends, family and the public-at-large will take place from 12 noon to 2 p.m., Sunday October 28th at the Redwood Grove near the corner of A St. and Arboretum Dr. on the UC Davis campus. Parking is available nearby in Lot 5. Please bring a favorite story about Jeff to share.
