Jack was a special guy who raised loving and caring daughters. He was also a heck of a chef, with his chicken bog perhaps the best I have ever tasted. RIP Jack, with thoughts and prayers to all his family.

Kathy, Jack was a good friend and a better man. I can see Jack entering the pearly gates with his new and perfect body offering to spot St. Peter 20 points and the serve in a game of handball and wanting to know where the golf course was and what the course record was. He can now do all the things he could not do for 20 years. Praise the Lord and God Bless you and the family.
