He had been active member of the Gideon's international, where he loved to share God's word with all he encountered. Jack was also Master Mason. He was a volunteer member of Boy Scouts of America, where he received one to the highest honors; the Silver Beaver.
Jack was a well-respected role model and leader of Artesia’s community. His small business guided residents’ financial future, while furthering the growth of the city. His truly compassionate heart uplifted numerous lost souls to God by fulfilling their many needs. Jack’s legacy will live on through all the lives he touched, and will be remembered for the many seeds he planted as those continue to grow and bloom.

All of us will continue with his legacy of love, compassion ... “Man, we have some big shoes to fill.”
The family asks that instead of flowers that you donate in his name to the Gideon's International or Paws and Claws of Artesia New Mexico.
