    Dee, Linda, Rick. Tammy, Lori and NancySo sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. He was always such a kind and sharing man, he had a harder shell at times but he really cared about people and clearly prioritized his family. I have a lot of fond memories living with Jack and Rick in Tukwilla and hanging out with your family. When we worked together Jack demonstrated a lot of faith in me and gave me a lot of responsibility. He gave me the opportunity to grow, learn new things and encouraged me to have faith in myself and my decision making. I learned a lot from him and he made a difference in my life. I’ll be thinking of Jack and your family and wish you the best in this tough time in your lives. My condolences
