My condolences to the family. I worked with Jack for a few years at Union Camp and he was one of a kind. He always had a smile on his face and for good reason because he was usually up to something. I enjoyed the time I got to know ole Jack.

We will say
Jack was one of our dearest friends, he stuck with us for many years, Dobie and Jack shared many years as brothers in the Masonic Lodge! They shared a bond many will never understand! He will be missed by many, but I'm sure he and all the one's gone on before him, has been having a grand celebration! May the Lord grant peace, strength, and Gods amazing Grace in the days ahead! We love y'all!

Penny and I express our deepest sympathy to Jack's family at this time of sorrow. We will miss him and his antics as he was always quick with a joke or prank and brightened the world around him! Rest easy in the arms of Jesus my friend!
