Met Jack many years ago at the automotive dealership I worked at, B F Evans Ford. Dealt with him on many occasions over the years. Jack was one of the nicest people I have ever met. Always kind words and our relationship developed over the years. Always enjoyed when he came in as our conversations were many. His sense of humor was grand as we had many laughs. Thoughts and prayers to all the family.
