To Jack's family, and to our dear Aunt Norma, we offer our deepest sympathy and prayers. We only met Jack a few times, but that was enough to know that he was a special person, and a wonderful friend for Norma.

Thank you all so much for your kind words about my Grampa Jack. Some of the memories you shared were still so vivid to me and really touched my heart. All of the wonderful times come flooding back into my mind and it is just wonderful to know that I was lucky to have so many good moments. He was the neatest, sharpest, most proud Grampa a girl could ever have. Thank you all again for taking the time to share your special thoughts about a very special person. I will miss my Grampa every day of my life and love him very much.

Dan, Butch & Families, I also remember sitting on the porch, after a big High School Football game, talking about the game and the White Sox's. I don't recall drinking PBR since those day's, but it they still sell it, I will have one in honor of all the great memory's. Thank you

Jack was always exciting. He was FUN!!! He had dry wit, wisdom, knowedge and a humorous insight I'm thankful to say I was privy to. He loved my Mother, Norma Strayer, and told me so many times over the 20+ years they were together. I visited him in the days before he passed. He joked with me that things were not so good and maybe I wouldn't want to come back to Crown Point anymore. I shook my head with a smile as I nodded to my Mother and he smiled too. I kissed him goodbye that day. I told him I loved him and he said, I love you too. I'll miss him very much.

My memory of Jack goes back to the days when I shopped at Lukes Mkt on N. Main. I did not even know his name but I remember his smiling face when I shopped there, usually with one or more of my four daughters in tow. When my husband passed away suddenly in 1969, he always inquired about how my children were doing. I lost contact with his smiling face when the store closed but his kindness at a time of sadness for my family is still in my memory. I am sure that he will be greatly missed by his family.

As Norma Strayer's granddaughter, Jack was like a member of our family. He was the sweetest, kindest man and we are so blessed to have had him as part of our lives for so long. He was so wonderful to our grandma, and it was so obvious that they had a very special relationship. I will miss him very much. Especially his call to my parents house every Christmas morning where Grammy was staying to wish the family especially his Norma a Merry Christmas. He will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.

I first met Jack when I was 16 and working with him at Luke's Market Basket. Little did I know then that I would eventually marry his son Butch. Jack was a wonderful and kind man. Can't say as I ever remember him saying anything really bad about anyone. I'll forever hold in my heart all the great conversation we had in the kitchen or on the back porch on Sunday mornings. I never really learned to like PBR, but he did teach me to have a great love for the White Sox for sure! It was an honor to know him, a pleasure to have him for a father-in-law and a treasure to have him for a friend. I love you Jack. Diane

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. He was a really great guy. He never treated me as just his mailman, for the seventeen years that I was but as a friend. I remember a lot of summer days sitting on his back porch having a cold Blue Ribbon with him and Jim Lauer. Your Mom would also sit with us sometimes and have a glass of wine and shoot the bull. They were really both great parents that you all can be very proud of. Even after I went off of my route and into management I would stop by your Dad's and we would still talk but leave out the beer. I retired and moved out of Crown Point five years ago but thought of him often and the good talks we shared.
