We will miss Uncle Jack and his sweet smile and kind word for everyone he met. When we would see him at the Legion, he would come to visit us and called both of us by our first name. Our love and sympathy to Shirley and all the family. He will be greatly missed. He always had a joke to tell and positive attitude about life.

Aunt Shirley, Steve Jan, Denise & family,
So sorry about Uncle Jack. Loved him so much. He was my favorite Uncle!

I am grieving with all of you and wish I could be there if I could.

I will always remember every time I saw Jack he called me by my first and middle name. A personal memory I will always have and never forget.

I am thinking of all of you and love you.
