Jeffrey Dennis Dwyer

February 13, 1969 - August 24, 2017

On August 24, 2017, we lost a husband, a son-in-law, a son, a dad, a brother-in-law, a brother, a pop-pop, friend and fellow employee. He was a man with many titles and a big heart!

Jeff started working for Richard Brusca Nursery, Inc. as a part-time truck driver in Spring 2001. In Spring 2002 Jeff started working for us full time doing all the retail mulch, stone, and plant deliveries and he did all of our wholesale shrub and tree deliveries and picked up flowers and plants when needed. Very dependable! Richard had him fix and maintain all the trucks, tractors, front-end loaders, wagons, gators, bulldozer, and backhoe! He would also go out in the field and pull out overgrown trees and shrubs in the winter and burn them in the summer!

Jeff was a great friend to everyone that worked with him! He will be greatly missed by all of our employees and customers! He will be forever in our hearts!
