My sincere condolences to all of you. Jack was an adorable kind man. My family enjoyed his time at our family gatherings. He always had a smile for everyone and will be remembered that way.
Stephany – So sorry for your loss, yet so thankful for such a long wonderful life your father had. I always enjoyed talking to him at your house. He was a wonderful man who “lived” his life fully. Thinking of you and your family with sympathy.

Peggy and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I pray for your comfort and peace.
Life is filled with many blessings; among them is a good death. I’m taken with you Father’s courage as death came to him. Know that I will remember him (and you all) at the altar.
Sending many hugs and prayers to all of you. Jack will always hold a special place in our hearts! Brad, Karen, Austin and Abby
Uncle Jack will be sorely missed. He was a great man. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
I am so sorry for your loss. At this difficult time please remember the Bible’s promise at Acts 24:15, “There is going to be a resurrection.” May the God of all comfort, comfort you in all your trials. – 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
