    We have fond memories of Jack both at the track or in around town. He always had a joke or storey that made Grace give the old “hope this ends up not too risqué “ he had that chuckle and smile that lasts a lifetime. Lawson and the men will be waiting for him in heaven on the rail trackside waiting to see who he likes in the Daily Double

    There will be a “hole” in your lives that no can can fill. Jack was a mainstay of family gatherings. He fitted in our clan from the day he joined us. We had lunch just a couple of weeks ago and it doesn’t seem possible that he’s not going to be at the next cousin’s lunch except in our hearts

    Uncle Jack always and a big hug, a joke and a story about my Dad when we got together. Like the rest of his brothers and sisters, they taught me much about Dad. Family meant the world to uncle Jack. You could tell that whenever he beamed when speaking about Kirk, Jeff and/or Elaine or even glanced at Grace. My heart hurts for you all, but know that Jack has merely joined the party with the others! XO

    Grace & Family,
    Our hearts are broken with the loss of a wonderful man. Jack will always be remembered as a kind & generous friend, always ready with a helping hand & and a ready smile. Our days in Beeton with our adopted family, the Peters, are ones we cherish, with memories filled with laughter & fondness. Our neighborhood get togethers on the 9th line were “epic” due to these very special friends Jack & Grace.
