I will never forget the many times I've talked with him and he always has a smile and call to me when we were outside. One of the best guys I've grown to know and love. Will miss him greatly. Farewell my friend. Old soldiers never die, they just fade away.

Jack and I worked together at Thorofare. Jack was ambitious, determined, sincere, and I enjoyed working with him.
He always had an ornery smile and liked to have fun. He was proud of his Family and concerned about fairness to all.
May God continue to Bless his family and friends. I will miss him.
