Dad always talked about the tricks he used to play on his brother, Jack. We loved listening to the talk about the good ole days. We will miss Uncle Jack. I am sure there was a wonderful reunion of brothers and sisters in heaven!

For over 40 years Jack has been our friend and neighbor. He and Betty, Butch and I shared many moments of our lives and laughter. He was a dear man who blessed us greatly with his talented hands and kind heart. Many blessings to all of Jacks family for their loss.

Betty - So very sorry to learn of Jack's passing. From the first time I met him, I could always see the happiness between the two of you. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

I was an in-home caregiver for both Jack and Betty. Jack was such a kind, gentle, patient man. I appreciated his dry sense of humor and the twinkle he got in his eye when he was being teased or was telling a joke. I felt that I could sometimes get a glimpse of the husband, father, grandfather, gentleman, friend he was before age and infirmity slowed him down. I am so sorry for the loss his family is suffering right now; and I am so glad for Jack that his suffering is over. May God bless you all.
