We were sadden when we hear the news of Jack’s passing. We only had the privilege of meeting him a couple of times. He was always very pleasant & a joy to visit with. I am sure he was an incredible person. It takes a very special, caring person to choose to serve in the US Navy & a very loving father & husband to raise a daughter as sweet as Cindy & sons as strong & caring as John & Christopher. We have added Jack & all of his family to our prayers. May God Bless him & his family, R.I.P. Jack
