Jack could be found working in his garden almost year round, and was always eager to share any tips or harvest with visitors. If you were especially lucky, you got a jar of pickles. He was a devoted son, brother, father, uncle and grandfather. He was a loving friend and his impact on those who knew him will live on. Jack's quick wit was on full display at coffee time, where he loved telling or hearing a great story. Jack enjoyed hunting and fishing with his friends and family, and was most content outdoors.
