Memories and Condolences

Ed and Glenda Erskin, South Bend, IN

We are so sorry to hear of Jack's passing so late - not until Christmas. He rented our little house in Osceola for so many years. We so appreciated him and heard only a few of his stories. We has a Battle Creek connection with him since we had lived there in the early 1960s. We wish we had known him better. Ed and Glenda Erskin, South Bend, In

Jack was a wonderful neighbor, always helping others by working on cars, or mowing a lawn. He will be greatly missed. God Bless.

I worked at Elkhart Brass yrs ago and I remember when walking thru the plant we'd always pass by Jack's work station and he always had a smile for you and wanted to talk. It's a shame he had to depart earth so soon, but there's a special place in heaven for him. R.I.P. Jack

Jack, You have taught me how to be a better friend. You really listened to people and truly cared what they had to say, giving a helping hand. Be at peace and know you are loved. Until we see each other again. Ride free forever my friend.

Jack, I will miss your laugh, your smile, and your warm and caring personality. You touched so many lives and you have left a great void in all of our hearts! Thank you for your friendship and for always caring about others. The light you brought to the world and those around you will never burn will shine down upon us forever! Rest well my friend. This is not's just until we meet again.
