  1. Uncle Jack was truly one of the good ones! He was one of the most generous men: generous with the love and laughter he shared with his family and friends; generous with the amazing stories he told; and generous with his spare change for our kids at the lake candy store.
    There was never a dull moment when Uncle Jack was around. We will miss him terribly. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Jack was one of a kind, and it was the best kind! Enjoyed talking to him each week when he brought a trailer load to Texas.

  3. I’m very sorry to hear of Jack (he’s always been Mr Harmon to me) passing. Our families spent a lot of fun times together when I was a little girl. He was a special friend with my dad, as they drove truck together for many years, and he always treated us kids wonderful!! I’m sure he will be greatly missed by many, but he leaves us all with great memories.

  4. So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. I will always remember his smile and kindness and watching the girls play soccer. God Bless you and your Family Jack. Rest in Peace.
