  • Fair winds and following seas my friend.
    Whenever we met you were always quick with a story and it was easy to drift back 30, 40, 50 or more years to days on the farm or in the sawmill. Good times and memories.
    RIP Jack

  • Dear Nellie, Teri and Amy; My heart is saddened at the loss of your husband and father. May God wrap His arms around you all and give you comfort at this difficult time. May Jack’s memories give you peace. Prayers and hugs……..Amy
