He worked for Shell Oil Company for 35 years. Most of his time with Shell was in Bigfoot, Texas. Jack was hardworking, there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t or couldn’t do. He was fun loving and would give the shirt off of his back to help someone. Jack loved hunting, fishing and hunting for arrowheads. He loved to eat and he could make a mean batch of jerky. Jack and Dorothy enjoyed traveling in their camper trailer, they loved going to New Mexico and Colorado. Jack was a good Christian man and loved his family.

Uncle Jack has been described as a good, kind hard working man. This is all true but I'm going to describe him as a memory maker. I have so many wonderful memories. Letting me drive his truck, shoot his gun but most of all the pranks! If you were with Aunt Dorothy & Uncle Jack you were having fun. I am so blessed to be their niece. I hope you are fishing in Heavens most beautiful lake, hunting in the most beautiful woods , finding the most perfect arrowhead you have ever seen & riding the best roller coaster with Bobby! Will always love & miss you. Thanks for all the great times we had.
