Ernest "Jack" Jackson Claxton, Jr.
Merle & family,
I am truly saddened at Jack's passing. I am so glad we got to sit with you and Jack at the recent Manchester Lions Club officer installation. What a joy it was talking with both of you and sharing wonderful memories. I too, treasure the pen Jack made for me. I never say good bye to Christian friends like Jack, I just say "See you down the road", because I know we all will! I pray God's comfort & strength for you and your family now and in the days ahead.

We were sadden to learn of Jack's death and announced it at the Bi-City Woodturner's meeting Saturday. Jack was so talented and was good about sharing his knowledge with other members. He had many friends in the club and will certainly be missed.
Dear Claxton Family,
I was so saddened to learn of Jack's death. I always looked forward to being able to see him when I was in Warm Springs. I don't think I could say the name Jack Claxton without smiling from ear to ear. To me he was "MR. Warm Springs" . I met him as a young new counselor from Marietta. He took the time to teach me how to do things and learn about Warm Springs. He was truly what you want everyone to be Kind, Friendly, Professional and Calm. He treated everyone with such respect. I always knew if I had a problem I could go to Jack and it would be ok. He was truly one of a kind. Know that there are dozens of people like me who will feel the loss of Jack but the wonderful joy of being lucky enough to have known him.
I wish the family love and comfort in this most trying time.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Diane Owenby Conley

I was so sorry to hear of Jack's passing, and I stuggle to find words to even come near describing Jack Claxton. He was truly one of the finest human beings I have ever had the privilege to know. In his role as Director of Counseling and my boss, even when the pressures on him were tremendous, he was always kind and even tempered toward me. He always encouraged me and trusted me, and made me want to do the best job I could. His staff knew that if they did their best for their students, Jack Claxton would "have their backs". He was so special. May God rest his soul and give comfort to you and all your family.
