Jack's great adventure here on earth may be over, but he will always live on in the hearts and minds of those who were fortunate enough to be touched by his presence.
Jack lived life on his terms, could always be counted on for a good laugh or a funny joke and, more importantly, appreciated a good joke, even about him.
One of my favorite memories of Jack was his determined effort to personally test the fit of every bar stool on Ocracoke Island, North Carolina, while the rest of us were at the beach or sightseeing.
I have fond memories of Jack whenever I use the beautiful, hand carved cane that he made for me many years ago.
He really was "One of a Kind" and life on earth will be much less exciting without him.

Hey Dad was sitting here thinking about you and all the fun times we had. I remember all the times when I was little we would go to Steve’s and play the pinball machine. The times we went fishing down at Greene’s dock and fishing up in the mountains. We had a lot of really good times through our lives and I will always remember those. You taught me a lot through life and because of you I became the man I am. Thank you Dad.
These last years was tough for you but now your in a much better place and you can watch over mom.
I love you Dad and just want you to know I miss you. You will always be with me in my heart and in my soul. I’ll never forget you.
Love you dad

I miss you Pap. You ment so much to me. Its hare to express in words everything feel inside. Growing up you were one of my best friends and a man I looked up to. You taught me so much. I remember so many times, weather it be after school or on the weekend, I would walk up to your house and spend so much time with you. You helped me as I grew up and even carved out my path as I became an adult. You have always and will always be right here in my heart. You were one of my best friends. You were the type of person that would give the shirt off your back to help anyone . You taught me so much. You will always remain in my heart as long as I live. I hope that someday I can even be a 1/10th of the person you were as I grew up. I love you and will always carry you in my heart. I love you Pap.
