    My deepest sympathies to Jack’s family, but also to our Daughter Stacy. I know he loved her dearly. May you rest in peace, I will always remember our time as a family.

  • Debbie Webb says:

    To all of Jack’s family and friends, my deepest sympathy. I was out of country when his obituary was in the paper and didn’t find out until the Christmas card I sent was returned, at which time I tried calling. I apprenticed under Jack when he was working at Hairaluia in the early 80;s. I spent a week with him after his surgery in March and wish that I could have stayed longer. He was such a sweet man. I will miss him and the friendship we’ve shared for the past thirty years.
