I remember Jack so well in school at St. Gabriels. He was always a farm boy with his blonde flat top and jeans on. He always had a smile on his face and seemed to just get a kick out of life. Lost track of him over the years and would not have recognized him if I saw him on the street in Connersville. He was a cute boy and made a handsome father and "PaPaw". Sounds like he kept his priorities in line just like he had at St. Gabes smiling and enjoying his life. Sorry for your loss and God Bless You all as you continue on living his dreams of family and farming.
