From the short time I known Jack, I come to learn how many people's lives he touched! He was a great man that always made me laugh! I'm truly saddened to know I won't be seeing him anymore when I drive past! I would look for him every time I go by! My rights and prayers are with him and his family!

Jack was a great man. He was kind and really was the type of person that would help anyone in need. Jack was one of a kind. He was always cracking jokes and was great at making people smile. He will be missed.

Jack I have known you forever. You and my dad and the rest of your buddies drinking coffee and just hanging out laughing at Bargaintown! I’m so glad I got to see you at Mike and Jeanette’s house and we laughed about all the good memories from back in the day. I’m sure my dad was waiting at the gates to welcome you home. You will be very missed but we will all meet again someday.

As a newcomer to River Dr. Jack and Missy were some of the first people to welcome us to the neighborhood. Jack was always ready to stop and tell a story, offer advice or ask if we needed anything. I will miss Jacks smiling face. My condolences go out to Missy, family members and friends.

My husband, Truman, held Jack in high esteem. Wherever he saw us, Jack would stop and have a cordial visit. When we had a sudden need for an excavator, Jack fixed things right down to replacing the grass so it looked like the problem never existed. We appreciate his kindnesses and Godspeed.

Jack was my angel on Earth. A completely selfless person. He gave my daughter and I a chance at a new life. He will always be in my heart. Thank you Jack.

Jack was a good friend to me and so many others. He was the kind of guy that would be there to help others, asking nothing in return. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. My condolences go out to Missy and other family members.
