So many wonderful memories of family and friend gatherings along with countless hours of soccer games and church functions. Jack was a wonderful friend of my parents (The Hershons) as well thru Sunday School and Church services. We will miss his loving smile and warmth so very much! Thank you Jack for serving out great country and being the Christian leader that God wants our dads to be. We miss you very much.
