Fran and family, Keith and I send our sincere sympathy on Jack's passing. He was one-of-a-kind and it was our privilege to know him. We may be far away, but our hearts are still in Black River and with our neighbors there.

So very sorry to hear about this. I often think of the fun times boarding my horse with you. I am really glad I got to know you both. My Deepest Sympathy to you Fran and your family!

Mary J Hinz

I remember Jack from when I was a kid and my mom took me to JoyLand. I loved horses and always rode the ponies that Jack had there. My favorite pony was Thunder, he was black and had a white saddle. I am sure Jack is taking care of all the ponies in heaven. My deepest condolences to the family.

We got to know Jack through scouting and KCs. He was one of the most charitable and dedicated persons we have known. God bless him and all his family.

Frederick Strassburger

My deepest sympathy, Fran, on loss of your husband Jack. He was truly a man of honor and sincerity. He always lit up a room when he was present and never had a bad word to say about anyone. May he rest now in the peace of God.
