    Papa Jack was a great father! He always was the life of the party with his gift of storytelling and his great memory of jokes. He loved his family, life, Sports and reading! We are blessed modern medicine gave him many extra years of life. Rest In Peace!

    Big Cadillac Jack will be missed. My wife and I always enjoyed listening to him tell a story or a joke. He always suggested good authors for me to read. We enjoyed talking horses and jockeys. Mike Smith was his favorite. He enjoyed talking sports and he hated to miss a game on the tube. We had looked forward to seeing him in 2021 in AZ again but God had other plans. Our hearts and prayers are with you.
