My best memories are of Jack’s outgoing and loving nature. He always had a lap for his kids when they were little. He greeted everyone with a smile and a joyful how are you. He had good will for the native Americans in Lander. His care for his family was immense. I miss him. He was a model I grew up with.

My dear Uncle Jack, so many laughs, so many memories. I remember as a young boy going deer hunting with my dad Bill and Jack. Never did hunt much, but they laughed telling stories. Love you !

His smile and laugh. His jokes. His love for his family. We first met Jack and Janet in Colorado when we camped next to them and discovered Jack was using our cable for tv. We became fast friends and shared good times. My heart is so sad but know he is good looking down on us. Our love to Janet and family.
