I was sadden to hear of the passing of Jack, we had known each other and were friends for at least 50 years. We used to run into each other different times. He was a very kind person and very helpful to me with my computer when I was trying to learn about the internet, needless to say he had a lot of patience. I could always count on him for a donation to JDRF. I knew something was wrong when the last few times I e-mailed him and didn't get any response. He was a very witty person and I will miss him, although we had not been in contact for a good while. Fly high my friend, RIP.

I am so sorry to hear this news. Jack was a great guy and a dear friend to my father, uncle and aunt. I would like to think that Jack is up to mischief and high jinx with Daddy and Uncle Bill, just like they were when they were kids, carefree and happy. 💗
