We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Downing Cottage Funeral Chapel
Jeffery A. Lilja, 41, of Hull, MA passed away, Sunday, April 18, he was the beloved son of Linda and Robert Tuscher.
Jeffery was born in Norwood, Massachusetts on May 29, 1979 to Linda Nordblom and Mark Lilja. After moving in 1990 to Hull with her two sons, Linda met and married Robert Tuscher and they became a family.
Jeffery enjoyed working in carpentry and masonry, music and dancing, especially techno music. Jeffery also enjoyed fishing and cooking with his family. One of Jeffery's favorite past
times was working out at the gym. Jeffery was a kind and loving person full of life and loved having fun. There was never a dull moment with Jeffery, from filleting and skinning fish on his parents’ front lawn to forgetting about the steaks he was cooking which ended up beautifully burnt to a crisp. Jeffery was the person to give you a hard time for no other reason than to give you a hard time. Jeffery loved with all his heart, lived like every day was the last and laughed like there was no tomorrow.
Jeffrey is survived by his parents Linda and Robert Tuscher of Hull; his father Mark Lilja of Arizona, his brother Kristopher of Braintree, his fiance’ Kristine Kozdra of Hull; his children Elizabeth and Elijah of Hull, Alyshia Kozdra of Methuen; his grandparents Dorothy and Eric Kempainen.
