“Uncle Jack will always be remembered as one of the most important men in my life. No matter how he felt or what he thought he would always take the time to sit and talk with you, share stories, and laugh. My two children loved him like a grandfather and I was honored to have him so close to them. He was a man you want your son to be. Uncle Jack was kind to everyone he met and he knew everyone!! He will be missed dearly but his memory will carry on in the hearts of everyone near and dear to him. He was simply the very best! ”
