Jack was a great guy. He made me feel better when I talked to him and when I made short trips with him. He enjoyed life to the fullest. He will be greatly missed.

Love, thoughts,and prayers to all of Jack's family from David and I. I first met Jack in the early 1960's when he worked as a salesman for Georgia Power Company. My father was the local manager of the Cleveland office so I would see Jack when he was in Cleveland. I had a blue corvair at the time and he called it the "Blue Goose". We continued to be friends after I married and moved to Gainesville in 1973. I never saw him in later years that we didn't share a couple of good laughs about the "Blue Goose". Jack continued to visit my parents after GA Power discontinued selling appliances and always shared vegetables from his garden when visiting. He always ate lunch with my parents when he was working and repaid those meals three-fold with his vegetables. Jack was always upbeat, kind, and smiling when you saw him, and always left you feeling much better. Cherish all the memories you shared as a family and may they help to give you comfort and peace in the days ahead. Rest in peace my good friend. I will always have a big smile on my face when I remember you.
