Jeff Arno October 8, 1942 - June 24, 2018

Jeff passed away on Sunday, June 24th after a long brave fight against cancer.  Born in Brooklyn, New York, Jeff was always so proud of being a “Brooklyn Boy”. He is survived by his longtime love, Helene Barcoff, Beloved Step-Father to Tami Barcoff Schneider of New York, Stacey Barcoff Butler and her husband, Chuck Butler, of Dallas. Loving grandfather (aka PJ or Papa Jeff) to his grandchildren Brady & Casey Schneider and Brooks & Gabbi Butler. His happiest times were spent with his family. After family, he loved his Nook and walking the Katy Trail, where you could find him most mornings schmoozing. And Jeff loved his Fitbit so he’s taking it with him so he can count his steps to Heaven. He will always be remembered for having such warmth and a great sense of humor.

 We will miss him terribly but those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear. We will remember him always with love and joy.

 In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Jeff’s memory to Friends of the Katy Trail, the Jewish War Veterans, the Wounded Warrior Project or a charity of your choice.

A graveside service will take place at 10:30am on Tuesday June 26th at Temple Emanu-El Cemetery located at 3430 Howell Street, Dallas, Texas 75204. Shiva will take place immediately following the burial at the Butler home at 14917 Lake Forest Drive, Addison,Texas 75255 and there will be a minyan that evening at 6pm.

    My partner Rob and I are saddened by Jeffs passing! We are the Dallas Police bike officers and talked to Jeff almost everyday on the Katy Trail! He always made us smile and laugh! He was such a true friend and he will always be forever in our hearts!
