Jack was a dear friend, possessed a keen intellect, and rose to the top of his profession as a Captain for Texaco. He shared many stories of his life at sea, taught me about Admiral Nelson, the Plimsol line and "Texas Chicken," was a cherished friend to me, Sharon, Allison, Meredith, and Tory. He captained our Boston Whaler on numerous fishing trips through the intercoastal waterway and out into the gulf which often resulted in having to order take out when we eventually got home. He was kind, quirky, generous, thoughtful, and it was a privilege to know him. God bless you my friend. Rest in Peace. With love, Adam Smith & The Smith Family.
