Not sure what to say?

Col Belina was my boss when we were both assigned to Air University, Maxwell AFB AL. He was a wonderful person who treated those under him like family. I will always be grateful to him. My best to Maxine and the family.

Jack was one of those special individuals who strived to be more kind, help more diligently, and succeed more often. Consequently, he will be missed more keenly. Although I cannot say that I had the pleasure of knowing him long, I feel that I knew him well, and I hope Maxine and all who loved Jack can take a measure of peace from these few words of sympathy at his passing.

Col "Jack" Belina was my Region Commander and a good friend. I mounted that walleye he displays in his profile picture. He will be missed by many including myself. God Bless Jack. Our prayers are out to the entire family.

Jack was one of my mentors, the best active duty commander I ever had the honor to serve. Always ready to help any officer or enlisted under his command. Helped me buy and sell my home in Maple Grove. Simply: The Best. God Bless Jack and the Belina Family.

Jack was a great friend and mentor. I got to know him when he moved back to Minneapolis to command the North Central Liaison Region. He was always ready to pass on his wisdom and stories. I will cherish his memory and friendship.

Col. Belina was many things to many people but, I remember him for his devotion to the people he advised as the Civil Air Patrol USAF LR Commander. He was a great help and supporter during a difficult time. He IS missed.

My prayers and condolences go out to you and your family. I will always remember having the honor of attending John's retirement from the Air Force after just coming back from Desert Storm.

Jack will be sorely missed by those of us who had the honor of working with and for him in the USAF-CAP. He may have been our Commander in the North Central Region, but he was definitely our friend and would go to the wall for his troops. He will be missed!

I am very appreciative of getting to know Jack and Maxine, better, over the past few years. They are very special people with a very close and special family. He will be greatly missed but has left many wonderful memories.
