Bill and I really enjoyed Jack when we all lived in Plano. We spent many a Friday night at the Franchise Grill!! He taught us Yankees how to play 42 Dominos!! Bill loved going skeet shooting with him and his friend Joe. Rest In Peace Jack! We’ll miss you!

Jack was the nicest person and had open arms for everyone. We had some fun conversations in the school library. He made me laugh daily.

Jack, I will always be thankful for all you taught me about technology at Wells. You helped me a lot as I was learning about all the new technology and how it could be used.
But my favorite memory is how much you loved cookies! We could always bribe you to do an extra challenging job if cookies were involved.

I missed you stories and wit when you left. I hope you had lots of good times with your family when you finally retired for good.

Mr. Britain gave me my first job. He taught me how to drive in his truck and in his boat. He taught me how to fish, dove hunt and water ski. I spent countless weekends at the lake with the Britain’s. I was not a member of their family but he sure made me feel like I was. He taught me work ethic, respect and discipline and he led by example. I am a better man because of Jack Britain. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to the Britain family.

Lots and lots of memories.. We played together as children, double dated as teenagers, and shared in each others weddings. Richard and I will always remember his wonderful humor and our love of him. He was truly a special man with many talents and much love for his family.
