Marty, John (Julie), Jason (Jessica) and grandchildren,

I am so sorry for your loss. What a nice man God made. I will always have happy memories of being your neighbor for 16 years. I hope your many happy memories comfort you through this sad time. Also Jack must be having a fun time with Licorice whom I had pleasure of knowing.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of knowing the Naunas family for close to 30 years now. We were blessed and honored to have Mr. and Mrs. Naunas(as I will always refer to them as) attend our wedding despite the many miles of travel involved. Through decades of albeit sporadic interaction, there was always a comfort and familiarity with Mr. Naunas. Never a doubt that this was a good man.

My sincere condolences. I have fond memories of Jack’s smile and hearty greeting whenever I’d see him at Trinity. He will be missed. You are in my prayers during this difficult time.

Marty and Boys, I’m so sorry for your loss. Jack was a great person and will undoubtedly be missed by many. One of my memories—I was newly married to Brent and you all hosted a rousing and fun holiday party! Jack was so warm and engaging and made me feel so at home and part of the gang. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Ann Hollenbeck (Brent, Kate and Olivia too)

We extend our deepest sympathy to Marty and the family at Jack's unexpected passing. We so enjoyed being with Jack, whether cheering on Purdue or Homestead football teams or walking by in the neighborhood. There was always a lot of laughter. A fine neighbor and friend, Jack will be missed.
