I remember Jack from our years playing baseball in Babe Ruth League in Okolona back in the early days. In later years we both were members of the Okolona Athletic Club. Jack was always friendly, competitive and a good guy to be around. Rest In Peace Jack.

Jack was a wonderful neighbor and friend to me. I really enjoyed sitting out on the porch and talking about the good ole days with him.
We will miss him and pray his family is taken care of during this sad time.

Jack was a very close friend as he sold business forms in the 1980's. Every Tuesday we would have lunch and he was a Brother Mason and good friend. We went through the death of his children and Jack had a hard time understanding why. After moving in the early 90's I had lost touch with Jack, but I have many memories of some great times together. Rest easy my friend and SMIB!
