Jack was a force of nature. His many talents were freely shared with those who spent time with this modern day sage. One always left a visit with Jack with more than they had when they arrived. His knowledge on an amazing number of subjects was balanced with his unique wit. No one told a joke better than Jack and while tears are in our eyes today, it is the laughter we will carry in our memory as we go on without him. Our heartfelt sympathy to all who had the blessing of many years of life with Jack. His wife Naomi who shouldered his care these many years and who in the last several months defined the helpmate we all pray for with endurance and grace. To his family we share the loss of this most special man.

With affection,

Dan Terry and Clint Beake
