Jack and Mary were our next door neighbors for several years. He always had a smile on his face and something good to say about everyone. He and I would be out in our back yards after a storm clearing the drainage canal together or just sitting in chairs in his driveway and talking. He was a great neighbor and buddy. Bill and I send our love and prayers to Mary.

My Mom and I were away on vacation in England when Jack and Mary became our neighbors and moved into their home. We quickly became the best of friends and have spent holiday dinners together, etc.. We came to find out that Mary was originally from Virginia, IL as was my Dad, so we also had many things in common and much to talk about. Jack and Mary have been the best neighbors we have ever had. They have been like family to my Mom and I since they moved in and helped me so much when my Mom was ill and passed in February. Love them both very much and will always miss you Jack!!!!!!

"Fast Jack". That was his nickname at the Power Plant for CWLP. Jack always had a smile on his face, a kind word to say about everyone, and always a hand shake when I approached him. It was a pleasure to have worked with Jack for many years and a honor to call him and Mary my friends. Mary and extended family, you are in our hearts and prayers. God Speed!!

I am stunned as I just read one of the nicest people I have ever known passed away. I worked with Jack at CWLP and he was just a marvelous good natured person. I haven't seen him in years but have fond memories of our times in the shop having coffee and laughing continually. Jack will be missed by everyone who knew him. His wife Mary is one of the best and my thoughts are with her and the rest of Jack's family. I could not feel more sad. Rest in peace my friend.
