We will miss you at our family get togethers but you will always be remembered.
I remember one fun fishing trip with you and Doran. Did we catch any? I know we had fun anyway.
We will see you in Heaven one of these days.
With our love,
Chuck and Alverna
Ride free Jack! You will be missed. One of my favorite memories is when we rode up to The Brick in Roslyn for some of their famous chili. Of course when we got there, they were out of Chili. Then they “found” some, which was obviously from a cold can on the back shelf. LMAO!
It just doesn’t seem real. I am thinking about you all constantly. I can hear his voice in my mind and see his excited smile when he was talking about something he cared about. I have a ton of great childhood memories spending time with Jack, Joyce and Jonell. There was alot of laughter. All my love.
I will always regret not going on those long rides with you and Brother Randy. You and I were so very much alike in our passion for Veterans’ and right and wrong.
I will never forget. I hated so much leaving you last Tuesday but I truly meant what I said to you as I bent down to kiss your forehead. “I have been and always shall be, your Brother and your friend”. The pain I feel inside is so real but will pass with time. But, my memories of you will never fade. God Bless you my Brother and Friend. I will miss you for the rest of my days. Thank you for being my Brother and Friend. I swear I will call Joyce often to see how she is. Cathie and I Love you and your family very much.
I worked with Jack at Energy Northwest and got to know him there. I really enjoyed working with Jack. Jack was always in good humor in spite of his physical ailments. May he rest in peace.
I remember Uncle Jack always had a smile on his face! The love that he shared with my Aunt Joyce was so special! A beautiful daugher, Jonell, was a product of that love! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Jack was a good friend. I met him when I joined Combat Veterans International in 2005 and we hit it off right away. He and I went on some long rides 1000’s of miles together and had a great time. I’ve got some pretty nice pictures of him for those who may want any. I will miss Jack. I missed him and Joyce when they moved to Post Falls. I was planning on retiring next year and had plans on taking more rides with Jack because we would of had all the time in the world. What a shock!!!
