So sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I have fond memories of our time as neighbors in Monroe. Having fun with Kevin in Del's barn and trying to ride Queenie. I know my folks really missed you after you moved to Winterset. Sorry for your loss.
To Shirley, Jacks sister and brothers, so sorry to hear of His passing.
I considered Jack a friend and great teammate during our football days. Always enjoyed seeing all those named above, when able to attend Monroe’s Old Settlers.
