I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Jack. I am so glad I had the chance to grow up close to him and the rest of my Family. The very first memory I can recall was when he saved me from the gate opening when I got my hand stuck on a piece of wire and he rushed me to the Hospital. You will always be my HERO Uncle Jack. Rest in Peace

Jack was the best "Candy Man" ever. He took our orders for candy at Lee's Market in Lisbon years ago. It was such a pleasure to know him, he was quite the Gentleman. His will be missed.

Dear Wanda and Sissy, I just read about your dad this evening at work. So sorry to hear of his death. I remember coming up and babysitting you two for them and staying with all of you. And Aunt Nellie and George living up stairs and them almost in the back yard on Market Street. Again so sorry for your loss. Bonnie
