According to social media posts (below) Jeff died 11/13/21. Christy died on 10/31/21 according to this obituary. There are a couple of things that make this SAV entry more mind-boggling than most of the others. First, Christy Gough was a Registered Nurse, so that alone should've been enough to get them vaccinated (with booster!). Second, Jeff's daughter (Christy's step-daughter) battled COVID in 2020 before vaccines were available. Her 40 day battle in the hospital was well publicized, as she is a sports reporter in Savanah, Georgia, and she documented her struggle which was eventually reported by CNN's Brian Stelter and Jake Tapper. She pushed mask wearing and vaccines on social media repeatedly, and I'm sure tried to convince her father and step-mother to get vaccinated as well. This is about as senseless as it gets.
First, please understand that Jeff's daughter Lyndsey Gough got really sick and came close to dying herself from COVID in July 2020 (https://www.savannahnow.com/story/sports/high-school/2020/07/17/wtocrsquos-lyndsey-gough-shares-story-of-her-battle-with-covid-19/114848758/ ):
Like I said, CNN's Brian Stelter reported on it:
When she came through she had a message for everyone:
And yet, Jeff, Lyndsey's father, was still fighting against public health recommendations:
And was clearly against the vaccines (as well as mail-in voting):
His good and talented daughter kept pushing vaccines on Twitter:
While her father Jeff took the opposite approach:
And in September, just before getting COVID:
And Lyndsey reports that Christy died from COVID:
And then yesterday she lost her father Jeff to COVID:
RIP Jeff and Christy.
