Wow, this is sad news. Jack was a huge asset to this hobby and his contributions to the hobby will live on for years. My condolences to his wife Cindy and their family. We'll miss you Jack.

Jack and I teamed up to share a hotel room at Iowa Gas a couple of years ago. What a fun time....he was a hoot, especially after sampling a beer or three! Jack was a thoughtful, hardworking, and generous person to the end, even though life threw him some curve balls along the way. Thinking of you and Cindy today, Jack. Rest in peace good friend. John

One additional quick thought, Gang. As many of you know, when Jack wasn't spending time with his hobby publication and literature business, he could be found at his Amvet post shooting darts (he was a champion at that). Of course, while there he'd also enjoy a brew or two. He was known to generously provide a beverage for his friends and acquaintances there time and time again. He was a proud veteran, and a guy who knew how to have a good time!

I see from Jack's obituary that memorials can be sent to his longtime Amvet post in his name. Sounds like a good idea to me! The address is: Amvets Post #55, 8842 Natural Bridge Road, St. Louis, MO 63114. Anyone wishing to direct a card and/or memorial to Jack's wife, Cindy could use this address: 3933 Madeline Dr., St Louis, MO 63114. John

Condolences to the family ! Jack was one of the foundations of the hobby . He answered many questions for me when I was a newbie on the site .Between he and Dick Bennett i bet they got sick of answering my questions but never let on when I restored my first pump. Always held a lot of respect for Jack and Dick . Peace be with him .

I'm saddened to log in to Old Gas today and have this be the first post I see, another hobby veteran gone. My condolences to Jack's family, he was full of knowledge as we all know and good to deal with too.

Such sad news to hear of his passing. Condolences to his family. His contributions to the gas pump hobby is unrivaled, he truly is the father of the hobby. He will be missed but I will remember him everyday as I pick up one of his books.

Man another old gas guy gone. He died quite a few days back now and we were all wondering how he was doing. No one answered. Man a really great guy who had a ton of knowledge for us all and always seemed to have time for everyone. Jack really sorry to log on to see this, and thank you for your service.
