  1. Sorry to hear about Jack’s passing. I knew Jack when he worked in the lab at Smith Clinic in Marion. Jack was always very friendly and had a quick smile whenever he saw you. Everybody liked Jack. He has been missed since his retirement. Fellow employees who knew him or worked with him won’t forget him, his kindness, and knowledge. Rest In Peace my friend. My thoughts and prayers for the family.

  2. Diane – I am so sorry for your loss. I often marveled at Jack’s gardening skills. He was always ready to lend a helping hand in the neighborhood. It was my privilege and pleasure to have served on the HOA Board with Jack. May he rest in peace.
