December 11, 1964 — February 18, 2023

Middleport- Jeffrey S. Strothmann, aged 58, peacefully passed away on February 18, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was born on December 11, 1964 in Hempstead, New York to the late George and Jean (Huntley) Strothmann.

Jeff graduated in 1983 from Corning East High School and went on to earn an associate’s degree in technology from Corning Community College. He started his own commercial two-way radio sales and service business, Wavelength Communications, which allowed him to work and be a stay at home dad.

He was an amateur radio operator, earning his HAM radio advanced license, and was also a lifelong sailor. Jeff was an active member of the Tuscarora Yacht Club since 1997. During his time with the club, he served on the board and was appointed commodore in 2018. His biggest joy in life was spending time with his family and his friends. He will be fondly remembered as a loving father, husband, and friend to many.
