    Jack will truly be missed. He and Sara were the best neighbors anyone could ask for. The neighborhood will not be the same without him. We are sorry for your loss.

  2. Jack was one of the most wonderful people I have had the pleasure of meeting. He and Sara were two of the finest members C.C.C. has ever had and it was a pleasure getting to know them. I will always remember Jack’s smile and that he always had time to stop and chat and have a good laugh. He will be so greatly missed.

  3. James & Helen Ament

    Am so sorry to get this news of Jack’s passing. Sara was my dear friend since fifth grade and she and Jack sometimes stopped in Ocala, Florida to visit us on their way home after wintering in Florida. Bet those two are already playing some golf at Pearly Gates CC. Our sympathy to Jack’s family and friends.
