PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — To say Jeffery Behr was involved in his community is an under-statement. The shock and loss of the man is still being felt by many who knew and loved him.

Jeffery Behr’s life ended on the slopes at Seven Springs after a violent collision with a juvenille skier over the weekend.

While his life would end in the mountains, one of the things the 51-year-old father will be remembered for his is efforts on the baseball fields.

Behr who was a multi-sport athlete in his youth and served as president of the Delmont Area Atheletic Association.
