I always enjoyed our conversations with him. You could learn a lot from him. He was a Godly man with humility.
I know he was a true follower of Jesus and is in his eternal home now with loved ones. I will meet him again one day. Thank you Lord for my knowing him.
I knew Jack when he worked for Sears and what a stead fast man. I loved to hear his stories and hear his take on life. His love for both Jesus and his lovely wife Jane was so apparent. Jack and Jane helped my family in a time of need in 1963. Thank you Jack, thank you Jane. God bless you in your forever home!
