REST IN PEACE
~ FRANK MAYHEW, GRAFTON, Virginia
My truly heartfelt condolences to the entire family. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
I'll always remember Jack for his patience and his loyalty when you both kept me company during my long hours of overtime work. Nobody cared like Jack and you did. He was a special man and I will never forget him.
~ Linda Harsey, Hampton, Virginia
I didn't know him for a
long time, but consider him a friend, his nature and caring for others
really defined who he was. He will be missed greatly by his family and
friends. May you rest in peace, Jack.
I will always remember both you and Billy in the same thought, arriving each Sunday with smiles and humor. God Bless You
~ Susan Dessoffy, Gloucester, Virginia
Jack was a wonderful friend and
neighbor. He always shared a smile
and a kind word. He will be greatly
missed. Our thoughts and prayers go
out to Joanne and family in their
time of sorrow. Blessings...
I am very sad and I would like to send my love and support to a great man. I only knew him at Newport News High school. What a wonderful person.

Joanne, Our family was so sad to read this in the paper. You, Jack, and the boys were so good to Rob and me while you were watching Lindsay. Please know that our thoughts, prayers, and sympathy are with you and the family during this difficult time. Hopefully our paths will cross again one day soon. Specials Thoughts, Lynne & Rob Roadarmel

Joanne, Jeffrey and Jay,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Remember your family so fondly during the time we were neighbors living at Criston Apts. My mom, Margaret Carpenter, always thought so much of your whole family. Jack always had a smile and was such a kind person. I know he will be dearly missed.
~ Patricia Tolley, Newport News, Virginia
Jack & I joined the Marine Corps together in 1953, I never saw him after boot camp, he went to Japan & Hawaii I ended up in Morocco for 18 months and then to Cheery Point, NC. I called him the year we had the HS reunion at Newport News City Park; we spoke briefly, promised to stay in touch and never did. Semper FI, Jack
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
My thoughts & prayers are with all of you. I did not know Jack well but think we lived near you many years ago in Hampton. I also graduated NNHS about same time he did. May it help in some small way to know that others share your loss.
Jack was such nice man. I never heard him utter any thing unkind about anyone.
I know he will be missed by his family.

Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
