My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. The world has lost one of the finest men I have EVER met
I remember the time Jack took my dad & I fishing in his cabin cruiser. We were fine all day. The way home however was a different story. A storm had come up & waves were coming over the boat. Jack asked me to drive while he pumped water out of boat. I was scared to say the least. Jack provided many interesting moments in my life–like fish head soup–yuck! Thanks Jack and may you now rest in peace.
Your sister- in- law- Love & prayers, Ann

My deepest sympathy to John’s whole family. I loved sitting in front of John in church and singing with him. I’m sure he’ll be singing with the angles in heaven.
