Aiken – Jeffery D. Frommer, age 65, a lifelong resident of Aiken, S.C., entered into rest on Sunday, March 31, 2019. Jeff was born at the old Aiken County Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Jackie Williams and a son of the late Paul R. and Ruth E. Frommer. Jeff was a graduate of St. Angela Academy. Jeff’s early years were spent as a professional horseman, a skilled rider and top brood mare man. Jeff went on to have a successful career as Savannah River Site for 26 years until his retirement in 2008. Jeff devoted many years as an active volunteer and board member at Aiken Child Development Center (now Tri Development Center). He found great joy in his involvement with the Aiken Steeplechase Association where he volunteered in various capacities starting in 2004, became a member of the Board of Directors in 2009, and served as Vice President of the Board from 2014 until his passing.
