Words cannot express the sadness we feel at the loss of Jack. As his sister-in-law, we have been through many good times together. We all also faced losses. There was compassion in Jack and he was always good to my family. I have known him for 60+ years and know that he and Mary were soul-mates. It was evident whenever they were together. Such love for each other and the children. I know he will be sadly missed but they will be left with many good memories. That is what will sustain them as he is now at peace. God will give you the strength to get through this. Nels and I are sending our love and prayers.
Eileen: Sorry to hear of your dad’s death. He is now in a much better place where there is no pain and suffering.
To Mary and all the family. I am very sorry for your loss. I do remember Jack from years ago in grade school, too. Keep the faith. He is resting easy now.

Mary and Family
My heart aches for all of you. I always enjoyed seeing Jack and you when I came home to visit, Mary. The stories he could tell about him and dad when they were younger and how he loved to tease! I have such fond memories of our camping trips together as well. He was a wonderful man, a very good friend to my dad and will be missed by him. My daughters, Jennifer and Heather always enjoyed seeing Jack and Mary and have fond memories as well. Our family will be praying for all of you during this time as you journey through the passing of your husband, father and grandpa. it is a journey that will take you through moments of tears and moments of laughter as you remember him and his life. May you all find comfort in being together and leaning on one another during this time and may you feel the love of Jesus holding you as you grieve. I am sorry I am not able to get back to Ohio this weekend but please know you are in my thought and prayers. Sending hugs your way!
Jack was an amazing addition to the family. He and Mary were a true team who not only forged a healthy home and family life but were able to look outside their immediate family to relatives and the community. They were certainly an important and essential part of of my parents’and brother’s lives for my dad’s last 40 years and my mother’s last 53 and my brother’s last 55. Their love compassion, support, and social interactions were a source of joy and happiness related to me in every one of my mother’s letters and phone calls.
Jack was a keen observer of people and would relate to pertinent information about my parents’ health that I might not know on the occasional times I saw him. He was a treasure. Please accept sincere condolences from me and my family.
Jeff, Bruce and family sorry to hear of your loss. Jack (your dad) was always great to talk to, from baseball games to racing and seeing him when had to pickup or drop off trucks at ups shop downtown.
Losing a loved one is always tuff, will keep you all in prayers.
