Knew Jack for 45 years. Good man , good friend and good freight hand. Used to take my daughters on his two wheelers for rides on the dock. Made me laugh. Some great memories and times. God Bless His Family

There aren’t many childhood memories of mine that don’t include my grandpa. He was the best grandpa. When I was little he let me drive my cabbage patch big wheel all over the place, listen to my walkman that undoubtedly had Baby’s Got her Blue Jeans On, on repeat and we would eat Ice cream in the evenings—and sometimes he and Grandma even got a concert, Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty were my back up. I always wished the miles didn’t create distance & he could have been to my kids, what he was to me as a child. While the boys are young and they don’t totally understand what all this means, I know I will
Pass on some of of the things he taught me on to them; hopefully it’s not the love for whiskey or wine. He once told me that’s how he knew I was a Hopkins! I can’t look at Linden without seeing him. He is starting to get those little freckles like Grandpa Jack had as a kid & I mean, he makes some of the exact same facial expressions. And Lennox, pray for us, because he acts a little bit like Jack Hopkins.
For so long I was his only grandkid, but forever he was my only Grandpa. I know he meant the world to many, and will be terribly missed.
Hugs to you in heaven.

We all adored and loved Jack very much. We have had so many laughs and fun times throughout the years. We are saddened by the loss but know he will be watching over all of his family from Heaven. Thinking of Tommy, Earl, The Bilbo's, and The Priddy's and all of his family members during this difficult time. God Bless.
Love, The Bourquin's
