I worked with Jack at Freightliner for over 25 years. He was a well respected and personable colleague and friend. Our friendship started when Jack was a Senior at Vancouver High School when I was a lowly Sophomore, but Jack was friendly and helpful to me when most upper class students wouldn't give you the time of day.
We developed a friendship that continued from then on. At Freightliner, our jobs caused us to perform our functions together at times. We frequently had lunch together with other personnel and we played golf together on various occasions. There was never a time when he wasn't polite, helpful and a pleasure to work with. A genuine first-class individual. He will be missed by all who knew him. We feel somewhat comforted in knowing he will be joining his beloved Pat. Our sincere condolences to his family.
