Memories Timeline


  1. I will forever be greatful that Gage had the opportunity to meet you and I had the opportunity to say goodbye. You will never be forgotten and will forever remain in our hearts.

  2. I must admit the best times I had when visiting my Rebel father-in-law was going to coffee at the Dairy Queen and in later years to Arnolds. Being a northerner,you can imagine the ribbing I took from Jack and his nephews. Teri and I will continue to visit Daingerfield but i will definitely miss the many years of coffee and southern (rebel) stories from my friend and father-in-law, Jack.

  3. I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Teri and her family. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time of loss.

  4. To Terry and FamilyI am sorry for your loss. I bet your dad/grandpa is going to always watch over all of you.God Bless youLove alwaysCindy and Will

  5. I never really got to visit you much, but the few times I did you made a lasting impression. You will always have a special place in my heart Grandpa Jack and for that I thank you. I'll miss you. XOXOXO

  6. It has been a real pleasure to know Jack as I did. He always seemed to be able to make something from nothing and have it work too. I know he enjoyed all of us who married into the family and I would like to have had more time to spend getting to know him as the others have. Jack was and is one of a kind. The Lord needed a person who could "get things" so he called Jack home to do that for him. I will miss talking to him on the phone when we call Texas but I know he is listening to us all. God Bless You Mom.Don

  7. I was welcomed into the family over 26years ago and Jack always made me feel like a daughter and not a daughter-in-law. He was a loving father to my husband and myself and a loving grandfather to our children. He will always have a special place in my heart. I love you Grandpa.

  8. To Aunt Adeen and family, I so wish I could be with you at this time. I know that Uncle Jack is at rest now and enjoying the company of so many other family members and friends. Like it has been said in previous posts, he is watching over each of us now and I hope that it comforts you to know that one day we will meet him again. I truely enjoyed our talk some time back and was in awe at how much he sounded like his brother, my dad. I only have one regret and that is that I didn't get to Daingerfield so that I could share a cup of coffee, hear rebel stories and tour the area with him. Please know that you will all be in my thoughts and prayers.All my love,Adrienne

  9. I'm lost for words and PaPa would tell you that is a first. I'm glad we chose to come to be with our family in PaPa's last days. I'll never forget a few wise cracks he had to tell like where do fries go.. to your belly.. I still eat them but with a bigger smile. We always sat on the porch and had our smoke breaks together and talked about nonsence but then we went to gum and patch breaks. I'm comforted to know that he went peacefully with his family by his side. He held on to the end worried about MaMa. I'm sorry for your loss and we are there for you. I'll never forget the day I called and said we are coming. He was more interested in Payge than myself. When we arrived at the house our greeting was " Hi. Now bring me that baby". It was like she had a sence he was ill, even if he didn't make a peep she would look over at PaPa and she would smile and he would do the same. PaPa Jack will always remain in our thoughts and our hearts. Love you and see you in heaven.Shawna and PaygeShawna

  10. dad was a great father and friend and was always getting me out of trouble Dave and I will miss him dearly lots of memories . love you dearly Dave & Barbara

  11. It was great spending time with my father before his passing. He told me stories that I never heard before. He was a great father and a special friend,I love him very much. I will always remember him for the great person he was. He was always inventing something. He would never let anyone wash his coffee pot he said it added flavor to the coffee. I will miss you always.Love your daughter Thresa Saverse

  12. Dear Uncle Jack,I will always carry such fond memories of you in my heart. When you still lived in AZ and our families could get together, we had such fun times. You had such a wonderful, dry sense of humor and loved to tease, but always fondly. In later life, your looks reminded me so much of my own dad, your brother, Oscar, that it was eerie. I only wish I could have come to see you and tell you in person how much you meant to me. I always loved hearing your voice in the background when Adeen and I would talk on the phone or you would add your 2 cents worth. Gone but never forgotten. See you on the other side. Love, Dianne

  13. For every great man, there are great memories and we all have many many memories of you. I want you to know that we still think about you every day and you are very much missed. See ya later, luv ya, Bye!
