My husband, Rex and I met Jack at HyVee where we all joined an open morning coffee group. There he showed us pictures of himself and his late wife dancing in their younger years. Later I interviewed him with regard to his service in World War II which is printed in "Honor Flight of the Quad Cities,, April 23, 2010". Later he introduced us to Millie, who was a great partner. Jack was a wonderful man who truly loved life.
