    Uncle Jack was my Godfather. My husband Rich and me were fortunate to have gone to his 100th birthday party, and have a wonderful chat with him – he remembered getting a flat tire on the way to my christening! (60 years ago!) What a memory Uncle Jack had! Rich and I remember fondly staying with Uncle Jack and Aunt Alma in Roswell after having camped in the Smokey’s in the pouring rain-they did all of our laundry, fed us, and warmed us up!- As a child, I went to Uncle Jack and Aunt Alma’s numerous times in Long beach and played on the beach. We also had the opportunity to visit Uncle Jack several years ago in MN when he was still living on his own. He took us out for a nice meal- and we enjoyed talking about the good old days. Uncle Jack will be missed, but he is up in heaven now with Aunt Alma. He will be missed. All our love to Margaret and Jack’s family. Our thoughts are with you. Love Janie

    Uncle Jack was an inspiration to us all. After serving in WWII he returned to resume his life, enjoying a successful career. He was the master at home workmanship. We will miss him.

    As we think back and ponder Jack’s personality we cannot forget his dry wit, always with a straight face. God bless you Jack.
