I always thought the world of Jackie. He was a very good friend. When his health was good he would stop by the feed mill in Martell to visit and I would always take time to listen. I learned a lot about life from Jackie. He would hang out with my father-in-law Arnold Bentzinger and help him do stuff that two elderly men could do. He will be missed in the community.

Jackie lived across the street from us when we both were much younger. I have many great memories of Jackie and the family, But I don't think I ever got to thank him, for putting out the Fire I started in the attic of my home. Great memories!

Jackie and I were very good friends. We went fishing together and had a very good time. He also taught me how to weld. There were many good times I’ve had with him and a lot of good things to be said about him.

Love, Ralph Hernandez.

When Jackie & I were kids, we wanted to be truck drivers. We listened to trucks coming up the driveway and pretended to be truck drivers. We bent coffee can lids and put black tape on them as steering wheels and walked around the yard driving our "trucks". We would back up to the "chute" to load the cattle before heading off to St Joe. As adults we both became truck drivers, even working for the same company at one time.

Jackie & I were very close and he will be missed. I will always be thinking of him.

The first year I was here which was 32 years ago Jackie and Shirley asked me if I would like to share a garden with them and I said yes. Jackie had no problem getting one of his tractors out and plowed a area for me having a garden at one end and them having a garden at the other end. We are deeply saddened to lose our very good neighbor Jackie. To Howard he was much more than just a neighbor Jackie was like a adopted dad to Howard. Jackie was a great friend to Lisa and her son Zachary. He will be deeply missed by us. With Love Howard and Lisa and Family

This man... and his family were such a huge part of my childhood. Many many good and happy memories spent with all of them. Slumbering together when storms came thru and he and my dad were off trucking. Begging to ride in his Mach1 so he could throw us off the console when he sped off. I don’t remember ever seeing him angry or utter a harsh word, he always had a huge smile and just seemed always happy. My dad thot the world of him and I’m sure they’re together now sharing trucking stories and planning a fishing trip Love you Uncle RIP

Where can I start? I have so many wonderful memories of Jackie! He always made me feel good, and happy, somehow! I loved his big smile and I especially loved his relationship to my dad, Henry Hiskey. Dad waited for him at the St Joseph Hospital before he would let go and go to heaven, that's how close my dad felt to Jackie, like Jackie was his son, not his nephew! I loved hearing the trucking adventure stories! I am so sorry I did not make the time to come and see him one more time.........God bless the family.
