The Armory is mourning the loss of Jeff and Nancy.


Recommended Posts

It is truly a sad day for the Armory. On March 28th we lost Gmountain and his wife. G's last posts were that he had the flu and was not feeling well. Turns out he and his wife contracted hepatitis A and they both died at home from it. Relatives had the police make a welfare check on them on the 27th and the police talked to G and although he was sick he said they did not need any medical help. The police made another welfare check on the 28th and found them both dead.   

I am having a rough time forming words for this post and I cannot express how I feel just yet other than shocked. Many members here knew G personally and my hope is those members can relate their stories to you. 


G, you will be missed greatly.


edit to add......G's brother past away as well after returning home from Florida. RIP  and god bless their families.

NOOOOOOO!!!!!  I am at a total loss for words.  Tears are forming in my eyes and can't think of anything to say. 



Edited to say...  RIP G  (Jeff).  You will really be missed.  My thoughts and prayers are out for the family and friends of both Jeff and his wife.  Such a sad sad day indeed.

Here's a little more info that I found online.



MARTIN COUNTY — A  Stuart attorney and his wife who were found dead last week in their Palm City home died from "complications of hepatitis A," according to a spokeswoman for the Treasure Coast Medical Examiner's Office.

The manner of death was natural, said Christine Canard, the administrative manager for the Examiner's Office.

Jeffrey Kirsch and his wife, Nancy Kirsch, both 62, were found dead in their home in Palm City on March 28.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, hepatitis A is a communicable disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus. It is spread by food or water contaminated by fecal matter. Symptoms include stomach pain, a decreased appetite, nausea and fatigue. It is prevented by being vaccinated against it.

Theresa Hewitt, Jeffrey Kirsch's paralegal for three years, and Randall Fischer, an attorney who worked with him, both said Jeffrey Kirsch was sick with what appeared to be the flu about a week before he died and was "extremely ill." 


"They (Jeffrey and Nancy Kirsch) were both so sick, and I honestly think he was so sick he wasn't thinking clearly," Fischer said. "The whole thing is absolutely bizarre."

Martin County sheriff's spokeswoman Christine Christofek wrote in an email Thursday afternoon that the agency concluded its investigation and found no foul play and no criminal cause to the couple's deaths.


Deputies said they went to the couple's home in the 3700 block of Southwest Sunset Trace Circle in Palm City about 4:50 p.m. March 27 after a relative said they had been sick and were not responding to phone calls.

Jeffrey Kirsch met deputies at the door and told them he and Nancy were both sick, but that they did not need medical help.

Deputies said they returned to the home the next day after they received another call to check in on the couple, and found them both dead. 

According to the Florida Department of Health in Martin County, hepatitis A can spread when someone touches objects, food or drinks that are contaminated by fecal matter from a person with hepatitis A.

Renay Rouse, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Health in Martin County, said as of Thursday afternoon, the agency is not investigating any restaurants or businesses in the county for being effected by hepatitis A.

Rouse said there has not been any contaminated food or water in the county. 

No further information was available Thursday.
