Jack received his education in Putnam County. He proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict. Jack farmed many years, worked at Maytag, and retired from MFA Exchange in Unionville, after almost thirty years.

Jack loved the Grand Ole Opry, dancing, visiting with anyone and everyone he met, for he never knew a stranger. He loved farming and raising his family on the farm. Jack was proud of his children and who they had grown up to become. He remembered dates so well. He loved having his dogs over the years with the last two Lady and Lacy being very special to him. Jack would often be seen on his scooter with Lacy pulling him in tow. He loved his chewing tobacco...always saying that it was his vitamins, and loved his coffee. Jack was baptized in Unionville, Missouri.
