We are so sorry for your loss. I knew my Uncle Jack to be a very holy man who always showed his kindness to my mother, Melina, by calling her weekly at times to keep in touch. I know that meant a lot to her and it gave a small glimpse into his goodness for me. I only met him a few times as a child and remember his laughter. I was honored when he traveled to Phoenix to be at our wedding in 2000. We will always remember him fondly in our hearts and in our prayers. - Mark & Kathy Hodge and Family

Roger and I were classmates with Jack. We, along with Jack, graduated from Barstow High School, the Class of 1954. Occasionally, through the years, we would see Jack. He was always busy helping someone in need. Jack was kind, thoughtful and caring
throughout his life. Now he has graduated to his Heavenly Reward.
With my condolences, Ann (Blackwood) Stricker

My heart is saddened to hear about my uncle. He had such a positive attitude on life. He was such a dedicated son, brother, spouse, and parent. He lived his life Christ-like and I know he had so many others waiting for him when he crossed over.

I have so many fond memories of him and each time I would see him he reminded me so much of my father (his brother) Ralph.

Matthew and Denise, I am so sorry, I pray that God gives you the comfort you need now during this difficult times.

All my love,
Shirley Aragon and Family
