We have had the pleasure of knowing Jack and his wonderful family for many, many years and we are devastated at the loss of such a giving and caring man. Not only was Jack a great family man but he also was NEVER TOO BUSY to help others with whatever project they needed help. When you tried to compensate Jack for his time, it was like trying to push toothpaste back into the tube! Such was his generosity!
Our most sincere condolences to the family!
RIP, Jack!
John and Regina,

"Fat Jack" was a big, bawdy, fun loving guy, who had a huge heartwarming smile and laugh. He reminded me of Jackie Gleason and anytime I had the pleasure of running into him I laughed, felt good and remembered fun old times. Sadly, those encounters were far too few as the years have rolled on bye. I know that anytime I think of him as the years begin to roll on forward - I will continue to smile and laugh and be left with nothing but fond memories ... I can only hope & wish to be remembered in that vien ... and when one thinks about it: WHAT BETTER WAY IS THERE THAN THAT TO BE REMEMBERED WHEN ITS ALL SAID and DONE!!
