Grandpa Jack was quick witted and had a wonderful sense of humor. Very intelligent human being. He could make, create, build or fix anything! He loved his family in a big way. He always had the best stories and always went through leaps and bounds, above and beyond to do and say things out of concern for his family. Hard working man and such great strength. We’re all gonna miss you Grandpa. But I know you’re thrilled to be in God’s Kingdom. God called a Saint home.

Uncle Jack, was a wonderful wise man I loved to listen to his stories he had to tell about the family and his faith. He was the person that I would speak with about my faith when I couldn’t understand why someone was taken from our lives or something happen. He will be truly missed.

I remember a day when the grandchildren found a turtle one summer day at the grandparents house ,and they ask their grandpa Jack what do turtles eat ? And Jack siad oh ” grass apples ,fingers and toes ! Their eyes got so big ! He slipped the finger and toes in there to teach them. He was clever that why 🤭 I still laugh about that to this day . ❤

I was only a few months old when uncle Jack lost his eyes. The last thing he saw was me in a little blue dress red hair and big blue eyes. He was a great man with a heart of gold. He will be greatly missed.
