Mr Close is an English man, he was age fifty-five (55) and he leaves behind him five (5) children aged twelve to nineteen years old (12 – 19) and a wife whom he had expected to meet later this week to go off on vacation with but unfortunately he passed apparently in his sleep on Friday night in his hotel room.”According to Mr Clover, Close appeared well when he completed his duty on Friday morning and the entire staff at Domlec are shocked to learn of his passing.“We here at Domlec especially the staff who worked with Jeff personally are shocked. He left work on Friday evening apparently healthy, expected to return to work on Saturday morning and when he did not show up at work then inquiries were made and he was found in his hotel room.”Mr Clover further stated that “there is no evidence presently of any foul play but the police are still investigating that matter and an autopsy will give the exact cause of death”.The manager also thanked the police department and the Fort Young Hotel “for their cooperation and the respect that they have shown for Jeff and the professional manner in which they have handled the whole situation.” He concluded by expressing his regret on the sudden death of Close, and extended sympathy to his family and to all persons who knew him.
