I’m sorry to hear of the loss of your father. Harvey was a good neighbor and friend. I also know hos proud he was of his military service and heard many stories and shared his pictures and memories with him. I know he has finally gone home to his wife who he missed so much.

Great guy who will be missed by many. My favorite memory of him was the year he and Aunt Elouise came down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. We were at the parade, he leaned over to pick up a pair of beads and his pants split up the back from the crotch to the waistband. He spent the rest of the day with his jacket tied around his waist. We got a lot of good laughs from that. I sewed up his pants once we got back to my house. RIP Uncle Jack, love ‘ya.
