Family-Placed Death Notice

Mr. Jack L. Cartland, age 46, of Dallas, GA. passed away on December 3, 2005. Jack's spirit however, will always be with those who know him. He always let people know his feelings. If Jack liked you, you knew it. He was the most expressive person and could give anyone a lesson in vocabulary. Jack loved words, probably more than most people he met. Needless to say, when Jack loved he loved in a great way. He was a passionate, sensitive and noble person. Whenever Jack saw an elderly person stalled on the side of the road, he would stop and fix their flat or do whatever he could to help. He hoped if his parents were ever in such a predicament, someone would help them too. Jack was a philosopher who had an intellect that far surpassed any average person. Perhaps one of his elementary school teacher said it best: "Jack is a leader who will always stand out in a group. He is a boy of exceptional ability and charm. The other boys look to him to make decisions. His imagination is extremely vivid and his sometime fantasies are enjoyed by all of us. He has a wonderful sense of humor." Funeral services for Mr. Cartland are scheduled for Tuesday, December 6, 2005 at 4:00 P.M. at Christ Episcopal Church in Kennesaw, GA with Pastor Doris Smith officiating. Interment will be Wednesday, December 7, 2005 at 11:00 A.M. at Kennesaw Memorial Park in Marietta, GA. Mr. Cartland is survived by wife, Mrs. Janet Cartland of Dallas; daughter, Miss Cassie Ryan Cartland of Miami, FL; son, Mr. Clay Montgomery Cartland of Miami, FL; mother, Mr. and Mrs. Philip (Joan) MacArthur of Woodstock, GA; step-daughter, Miss Tara Anne Parker of Kennesaw, GA; step-son, Mr. Ryan Walton Maddox of Dallas, GA; uncle, Mr. Norman Fowler of Orlando, FL; and sister, Ms. Jaye V. Cartland of Canton, GA. Benson Funeral Home, Dallas, 770-445-9494.
