    You have my sincere condolences. I knew Jack during our early years at John Deere. I was in a different department than Jack, but he did a lot of electrical engineering for me on my projects. He was well liked, hard working & dependable.

    May God bless & keep you.

    Jack is the real deal. His love for Jesus and for others (especially children) was exemplified not only in his speech, but his life. I’m grateful that my kids got to see his love and zeal for Jesus and for them. May we meet again on that Happy Golden Shore!

    I am so sorry for your loss and the suffering you experianced. Thank you for the testimony of your faith, during this time, of your trust and love in our Lord Jesus Christ. That was the life Jack lived, every time I  visited family and went to Grace Baptist he always had time to show the kindness and grace filled spirit that came so naturally to him. 
    May his memory be eternal.

    So so sad  have no words, just tears. 

    We loved him so much. His smile, his voice,

    his spirit, his hand shake, his laugh, the way

    he talked, the way he prayed, the way he sang,

    the way he lived. What a blessing, what a man. 

    God thank you for letting us know such a

    truly wonderful gentleman. 

    Thank you Jesus, see you both later
