Jack was so nice to welcome us to the neighborhood and always nice to visit with us. John and I will miss those visits with him and often with Margaret, too. One could not ask for nicer neighbors. Jane Ann Johnson

I met Jack back in 1984 when I started working at the Ozark Wal Mart in Sporting goods while going to college at MSU. Jack was an assistant mgr. and was a great guy to work for, It wasn't long we became friends and had a lot of good times at work. We killed our share of deer down on Howard's Ridge South of Gainesville over the years. Jack could cook a good pot of stew! We played a few rounds of golf down at Hidden Valley golf course. I enjoyed his friendship, you'll be missed! Aaron Johns

16 years ago our son drove his car through Jack and Margaret's fence row. Joe and I walked to Jack and Margaret's to apologize and repair fence. When we got to the door Jack saw the anger in me and said to me "He's a GOOD boy. Jack knew that I was the one that needed a lesson. I'll never forget that wisdom. Will miss you Jack.

Worked with Jack at MFA, always a lot of fun. My sympathy to Margaret and family Connie Long

Jack was my school classmate! We graduated together in 1958. I consider Jack to be one of my close classmate friend. I always enjoyed visiting with Jack. He was funny and always had something to say. Our fathers had the very same name of "Clyde". We always referred to each other as "Clyde's Boy". That always made us chuckle! I now live in Texas and cannot attend Jack's services in person, but I will think of him on Thursday. Love and sympathy to Margaret and their children. Anthony McConnell
