Memories Timeline


  1. We all remember Jack as our “Casanova” cousin because he always made the females feel beautiful and special. He was such a kind man who loved his family. I think of Jack whenever there is a meteor shower. When he was with us in the mountains when stopped in the middle of the road, turned the lights out and looked up at the beautiful night sky. We had a date to watch a meteor shower together but with everything that has been thrown at us the past few years we couldn’t make it happen. I will always think of you when I look at the night sky. Peace to you Jack and especially your family Regina Echols Smith

  2. May you rest in peace, our dear brother and uncle. Thank you for watching over us . We love you. Betty Yoder Zonker, Anita, Betty, David and Linda
