We remember Jack when he was Ambassador to the Clowns. He was a good guy and we enjoyed visiting with him and June at their house in Laketown. God's peace to his family.

We'll certainly all miss Jack - a great guy. I was a neighbor of his and I remember him as a teenager on West Cook street and when he went off to the service. I always appreciated his friendship and generosity. He was a very hard worker for the Shrine and Was helpful to me when I was Recorder. June, I want to express my sympathy to you for your loss.
