Hey Jack, Thanks for all of the encouragement over the years.

Perhaps Phil Knight had the best comment about why we run " You tell yourself that you're running toward some goal, chasing some rush, but really you run because the alternative, stopping, scares you to death. "

We are running with your spirit.

Jack! I knew Jack from working at Lowes Foods in Clemmons. He came in everyday, we got a long great he was always such a bright spot in my day. We’d rib each about sports and make jokes, I really looked forward to seeing him. We’d bet Coke’s on Cowboys-Redskins games, I think he still owes me one but We can settle that another time. See ya later Jack!until we meet again my friend!

I worked with Jack at The Phoenix Company for many years . I enjoyed talking with him about places from the past that we both knew about. Once he was in the hospital and I visited him and brought him a stuffed frog that sang "don't worry, be happy" . Fast forward about seven or more years later and I had my first stroke. After a few days Jack came to visit me in the hospital and he returned the "don't worry be happy" frog to me. Made my day. I was not able to attend his funeral today but Jack was in my thoughts. His family is in my prayers. I am so glad Jack was my friend and I will never forget him

I was friends with Karen when we were in high school at West Forsyth. We hung out at her house a lot. I remember her mom and dad fondly. I know it’s been hard for Karen, Jackie and Kathy to lose an awesome father and a wonderful man. You’re in my thoughts and prayers!

Jack was a very special person to my team. He came in almost every day and was always in a good mood. He went from department to department talking to each person about his life, antics, and telling a joke. He was a highlight in people’s day, especially mine. In the midst of life’s crazy moments I/we always found time for a quick chat. He will forever be part of the Lowe’s Foods Family in Clemmons. Rest In Peace Jack......Kate Allred-Store Manager Lowe’s Foods Clemmons

Jovial and always smiling. He would light up a room. My wife and I knew Jack for 34 years. Ran with him back in the day but couldn’t keep up-switched to bikes. He always said he wanted to be like a torpedo when he started a race. A pleasure to have had Jack as a buddy.! Rick Erickson

We will sorely miss our good friend and neighbor. We always enjoyed ourselves with him. He had the best sense of humor, and best stories and advice for life. Enjoyed his outlook on Nascar and Duke basketball. We thought highly of him as one of the "icons/elders of our neighborhood.

I worked with Jack for 24 years. He loved the Redskins, I love the Packers! We always bet a 12-pack of beer whenever our teams played each other...I think Jack bought more beer than I did! Jack and I shared one somewhat rare, I suppose, experience...we both have had meals in someone's garage. Jack used to talk about going to his garage breakfasts and my family used to picnic in our garage. I will miss my garage breakfast buddy! Are you ready, Jack?! I know the Good Lord is ready for you. Rest in peace my friend. Love, Mary

Jack was one great friend, and as others have said a very fierce competitor. He referred to himself as the "Old Geezer" but he was very young at heart. He will be dearly missed. I will always cherish the time spent as his friend.
