Dear Ann and Family,
Please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of Jack.

We knew him as wonderful member of the Wilbur Schools family.
Whenever he was bus driver, especially, tournaments we could always depend upon him to get us there safely and happy.

A great memory for me was that he always could be found sharing stories and enjoying the company of his fellow drivers but also have a word of encouragement to our wrestlers and football players.
He was a good guy and the memories we have of him will carry on for a long long time.

Please recover quickly from the virus, hug kids and stay safe.

We are so blessed to have known Jack for so many years. Our volleyball bus rides, including cruising Riverside, was an unforgettable memory. He brought laughter, smiles, and such a positive attitude to everything he did. Ann, Donna, and Ron are all such a wonderful legacy of his life. We wish you all much comfort and support at this very difficult time. God bless you--I am sure Jack will be the chief volleyball bus driver in Heaven!!

With much love and concern
Chuck and Radene Wyborney
