I always looked forward to visits when we were just kids, when our family would go to Little Rock or Jack Alan and his family would come to Fayetteville. I can remember lots of days when he and I would spend an afternoon in our room reading comic books and hot rod magazines, listening to music and talking about what we were gonna do when we grew up. He was good guy with a great laugh. I will miss you cousin.
My sympathy to the family. I worked with Jack many years ago, he always worked hard and we always, always had a great time. He is well remembered. God Bless you all.
I have fond memories of him as a little boy. This hardly seems real to me. He was my nephew. My thoughts and prayers for the family.
When I met Jack for the first and only time a few years ago, I thought how lucky my cousin was to find such a good man. He treated us with kindness and jokes, took us on a tour up in Eureka Springs where their favorite hang out is. He made a very lasting impression on us in that short time. I'm sadden that we were not able to continue to have that friendship and love that goes with family. To his wife Marcia, love you Cuz - hope to see you soon.
Jack, you were an awesome brother-in-law. You made us smile, were always very helpful, and considerate of others. It just isn't going to be the same without you. Knowing I won't see you again in person is very hard, but I sure do look forward to seeing you again in heaven one day! God go with you. RIP Jack.
Jack was someone we will cherish and remember in memory as a good friend. He had a big heart and kind, always offering a hand. Rest In Peace with the Lord, we will miss you.
David, Lorie and Carmen, deepest sympathy in the passing of Jack. He was there for you after Tom passed away and I know he was good to you all. How fortunate you all were to have him in your life. Again, my deepest sympathy.
May the precious memories that you shared and hold dear be of comfort and God’s promised help you through this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
RIP Jack. You were a great brother in law.
Marcia and family, our deepest sympathies for your loss. Jack was always very kind and so thoughtful and helpful. We always enjoyed visiting with him and appreciated his sense of humor. He was a really great guy and will be deeply missed. Holding you all in our prayers.
