Jack is a friend who will always be missed. Ina and I always enjoyed his company on our too-infrequent visits over the years. We were always impressed by his knowledge, his expertise, his skills, and his quiet and steady support of the family's endeavors. Jack is one of those rare individuals who never felt the need to boast of his accomplishments, but they became apparent over time, and thus were made even more impressive. But aside from all that, he was just a "good guy." His loss is keenly felt by all of us who knew him.
