I have such fond memories of time with Frances & Jack, Whit & Lou Dean as well as myself and Milt and all the children. Jack was such a friendly and fun person. I know he will be greatly missed. Love to all the family.

Uncle Jack and my dad were friends who became family by marrying sisters. I am saddened for Aunt Frances who was with him for most of his life’s journey. Sending love.

I met Jack at Newport News Shipyard where he was the Field Site manager for Westinghouse. In fact Jack hired me for Westinghouse in 1977 for an opening in the Westinghouse field office at Mare Island Naval Shipyard. I was also fortunate enough to actually work for Jack at the Nevada Test Site later. Jack was a boss that you just wanted to do your best work for. Many people in the former Westinghouse field service will be sad to hear of his passing. I certainly am.

I met Jack when he was at Newport News Shipbuilding. We were both Technical Representatives during Ballistic Missile Submarine new construction. We worked for different companies; he was involved with the weapon system and I was involved with the navigation system.

We shared rides to Newport News as we both lived in Virginia Beach and it was a bit of a commute. I admired Jack for his personality and values. I have good memories of those days with jack and it was good times.

I know he was a family man with a good family and will be missed by them and others.

It is sad news to hear of his passing. So, RIP to a friend and so glad we have stayed in touch all these years and glad we visited you in Las Vegas. Also, glad you took the time to visit us recently when in Knoxville, TN area.

I always liked Jack. I believe he lived a very impressive life. He helped me out when I was a little kid & I am grateful.
