    Welcome Bard!
    Glad you found your way here.
    Jack was an inspiration and a true friend to me for several years.
    I live close to Freedom where jack use to shoot BP matches.
    You can call me a flatlander any time, I miss that.

    Welcome to Reoville Bard. As you know Jack was a special person and we habitants of Reoville were very lucky that the crazy, zany and wonderful mountain man pulled up a chair here and made all our lives better and richer than we were before. Great and happy memories remain thanks to your friend.

    My sentiments, Bard. Your warm welcome and embrace was so special to all of us. You gave us a much needed Jack fix sharing yourself and a part of Jack in you. I think he was just as fortunate to have had you as such a good friend (and kind of family) as you are to have had him so close. My warm regards to Penny and Gioa and family.

    With love and admiration, Feisty Alice

    I had the honor of speaking with Jack on several occasions. I have the pleasure of owning one of his REO's. He was so fun and easy to talk to. Just a great person. I am just learning of his death today and I'm in tears. He will be missed. RIP Jack.

    Awww-this will teach me to not notice stickies. This sucks, I was just thinking about him the other day and that I hadn't seen him post.

    RIP to someone I never met, and still enjoyed. I saw him here and saw some of his reloading info. We had two common hobbies and I loved his posts.

    I didn't know Jack but I always looked forward to reading his posts. He was so funny and helpful. Reoville has lost a great citizen. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, I hope they find comfort soon.

    I've wanted to post this for a while, but I never knew Jack or had the chance to talk to him here, though I read through many posts (and saw a couple videos) of his. What a character! Quick wit and a great sense of humor. And a dedicated REOnaut to boot. The things he'd come up with had me rolling with laughter as I read through the REOville threads. I know he's sorely missed.

    I'm still "delicate" when it comes to thinking about Jack or reading posts. No human I've "lost" has had a more profound affect on me than precious Jack. Stay healty friends and live long.

    A good friend and coworker of mine, 23 years old and was in the same mold as Jack, the kind of person that just makes everyone smile and enjoy being around, was shot and killed in a drive bye shooting a few days ago. I instantly thought of Jack and it brought all the pain of his loss back on top of losing my friend. It has not been easy lately. I miss you Jack old buddy.
