I remember how fond of him Mike and Renee were, the sound of laughter and stories echo about a man full of life. May the love of God keep his family close during the days and weeks ahead.

Extending my condolences and sympathies to the family,
I remember Gid from Thornton Jr High School and in later years we would see each other out and about.
I'll have a lot of fond memories of when we played Bid Whisk down at the club on Wednesdays.
May you find some measure of comfort in knowing that others care as you grieve the loss of your loved one in this life, until you're reunited together again in the next.
Sincerely,

Jackson Family
Oh our hearts are beyond broken with so much pain and grief. We are so sad to hear of the loss of our dearest friend. Gid was one of a kind. His Barry White voice, his laughter, the jokes, and not to forget his great cooking will be missed dearly. We will also miss Gid at our parties. We were so blessed to have him celebrate Mike's 60th birthday and to share with us our 30th wedding anniversary of which he was our best man. There aren't enough words to say about Gid but that we will miss him so much and will cherish all the many memories. RIP You are all in our thoughts and prayers and may God keep you strong through this difficult time.

To the family of Gid Jackson,

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Gid and I go way back like Cadilac seats. We shared a lot of good memories.

We played football together for SouthEast Eagles Batams, played against each other, Gid for Central Hower, I for Garfield.

We worked together for Ohio Edison. We partied together at Thornton Jr. High, South Akron Reunions and cook outs at Antoine's.

GONE, Yes, BUT!! Never to be forgotten. I picture Gid with a football suit on with wings on it. He loved the game.

RIP in heaven Gid my buddy, my friend, my pal. You will be missed by many but never forgotten.

Shalom until we meet again,

Ramont
