My condolences to the family. I have known Jack almost all of my life and I don't think that I have ever known a finer fellow than Jack.There are very few things that he wouldn't try or that he hadn't already done. I hunted and field trialed with him and kept his old Snapper mower and weedeaters running. I'm going to miss my old buddy Big "D" and a lot of other hunters and people from the Vol market will too.
