I have had the pleasure of working with Jack for several years
Started off when I worked at River City Coatings in Van Buren, He would deliver to us there.
He was always a ray of sunshine for me working there in the heat & hot environment. He always had some joke to tell me daily.. Then I moved to Baldor & he found me there! I continued to work with Jack when he would deliver parts to us in the Lab. It was an Honor to know Jack & to be able to have contact with him. He Loved his family & talked of them often. My heart goes out to the family & Prayers are sent your way for peace & comfort! Love to all that knew this Ray of Sunshine

I have known Jack for many years. Dating back when he would go along with Lee to watch him bowl. I don't have allot of stories from back then of him but I can share one of the most memorable and thoughtful I have. I was working at the bowling counter at fast lane entertainment when he and jarek walked in. He said hi and said he brought Jarek up to practice. Now it's about an hour drive or more but he said he wanted him to practice on different shots and houses. It has paid off because he has a very fine young man he helped raise and a darn good bowler. I know Lee is up there patting him on the back for helping produce a great man for the future!!! I am not good at these but i hope Jarek and all the family likes how i remember Jack. I won't forget him.

Prayers for all the family. I met him through my late husband David James. I always saw him and talked to him at all the youth tournaments. I just spoke to him a few weeks ago at the state High School tournament. I always enjoyed seeing him and talking to him. He will be missed.
