I was privileged to know Jack for many years. I was a frequent visitor at his house and the door was always open. We never had a dull conversation and high school football was usually the topic of discussion. I have many great memories of sitting on the front porch on hot summer nights as Jack smoked his pipe. The memories are precious to me. He will be missed.
