I posted much of what I wanted to say on facebook....Jack, Jack, Jack...the plane trip to Orlando for boot camp....stopover in Atlanta, what did we do ? Got a case of beer and sat on a hill by the airport and had a few.....you led the way and we followed...I think lots of your friends followed you....thats what you were...a leader...What times....Then you were chosen by our Company Commander to be our Recruit Chief Petty Officer, and once again , we followed....Boot camp was a breeze, in part because of you....Robert, George and me had it made. Then they let us visit Disney World towards the end of our stay.......we ran into a former classmate - one year prior to us. She recognized you.....that was a treat...she was hot !!!! Always something good happened when we got together.....I'll always remember you.....and bring you up at any future gatherings of TR peeps. Keep an eye on us down here, we may need watching....Rest in Peace and I hope there is a dog that can hang out with you.....Cya Squid !!

Remembering the times we had, good and bad, of life’s experiences in SA and Houston. The woodsies at Jim Thomas’s folks land, Northridge Park, the coast, and the other places where you instantly started parties. All of my friends from UH and Sugar Land who met you are also saddened by your leaving us too soon. Say hi to your folks for me and let Gary and the others know I’ll see y’all in a bit when my time comes. If there’s a Pancho’s Buffet there we’ll give that flag a workout just like old times. And never loose that smile that always opened doors for us, okay?

Jack’s job brought him to our place on a weekly basis in the spring and summer of 2017. Upon meeting Jack, I was instantly struck by his friendliness. He was upbeat and pleasant to visit with, and he did an excellent job for us. Then along came Harvey, which gutted Jack’s abode in storm-ravaged Dickinson, and so Jack became our welcome guest, but not for long! He knew that he needed to get back to San Antonio so that he could be closer to his lifelong friends. He accomplished this important goal, and he persevered thereafter, despite quite a few health challenges, some of which we were witness to during his time with us. He was incredibly kind to our sons (and our dogs!) while staying with us, even though he thought we were all 21st Century hippies! We enjoyed having dinner and watching sports with Jack. Our family will always remember our special guest and friend, Jack Hall.

Dear Bestie... I’m not sure how I will do life without you in it, but I am so thankful for the last several years when your friendship added so much joy to my life! People say that if you go thru life and have even a small handful of true “would do anything for you” type of friends, you can count yourself exceedingly blessed! You were definitely right there in my small handful, and I do in fact consider myself exceedingly blessed! THANK YOU!!! You are already so missed!

Jack and I were friends in high school. We lost touch with one another but we found Jack again and Reese and I wrote to him routinely for a time. We were blessed to get to see Jack a few years back and we had lunch with him and other dear high school friends. Who could have guessed back in high school where life would take each of us?
Jack was content in his life . That is a pretty rare thing. He was generous with his time and he frequently wrote about life’s lessons he had learned. He learned so many and he was a great writer. We were proud to call him friend .
We really wanted to see Jack in his new home but the corona virus kept us and so many others away. So we are glad that we will see him again some day in our Fathers house. I bet he helps get our room ready! He was handy like that.
Happy Trails Jack , until we meet again.....

I only new Jack the last year or so of his life, having come in contact with him through our church and the Abode hospice center. He lived in our house we have been remodeling the last few months and I saw him almost daily. He loved working in the yard and on the house and was very tolerant of our construction, even once doing without sewer plumbing for a few days. He was a generous and spiritual man, wanting to join every small group and prayer meeting he could, despite his pain and illness. I was impressed by the number of friends he had, there was a continual stream of folks at the house to help him, many more than supplied by the hospice service that tended to his health. I sincerely believe he was blessed by God at the end of his life and is so much better off now, in the arms of our savior.
