Jack is praising God in Heaven. We look forward to seeing him again. I had lunch with him over New Years when I was in Sigourney and enjoyed being with him as always. He was a wonderful witness for Jesus Christ. My condolences to the family.

Lost a great man. A kind man He helped me build my first gun mount for my chair. Helped learn ways to shoot. Taught me about pistol scopes. Gave me my love for pistols. Treated me like a son. Time goes by to fast.
My prayers are with his family.
