    One thing I will always remember about Jack was the goodness and concern he extended to me and my family. He was always there with an encouraging thought and made you feel like he was truly your friend. Mostly he made me laugh a lot. I’ll really miss him. Sending hugs to all his family whom he truly loved. I know this because he always talked about them.

    One evening during a talk on grooming Jack was gently nudging some to gussie up a bit more. I believe his counsel to the sisters was “if the barn needs paint…paint it!” I followed that advice every morning Jack! I will miss your laugh. We love you.

    My most sincere condolances.

    You do not know me.

    I attended Kingdom Ministy School with Jack in 1976.

    We loved him, his serious side & humorous side in and out of class.

    I hope you still have the class picture from 1976.

    But soon we will see him when the earth is a paradise.

    I have not seen Jack since I was seven years old. I was his daughters best friend before I moved away. Jack and Janice gave me my first Book of Bible Stories in 1978 and their kindness and love has stayed with me all my life. I will see you in the Paradise so I can thank you in person.
    Much love to you and your family.

      I knew Jack from working at Medina Hospital with Janice. Seems so long ago. But Jack was a Kind Loving Man and I will always remember his Beautiful Smile and Kind words. Rest In Peace Jack????

  11. Sean says:

    I would call my Dad sometimes and he would say “ let run something by you “ it would be something that he was working or an idea that had and we would get to laughing so hard one of us would have to hang up because we couldn’t breath we were laughing so hard. I’d have sometimes pull over if I was driving because I couldn’t see from the crying tears !!!! My Dad always saw the good in people and was one of the most generous persons I know !!!! I will truly miss our talks for now.
