Jack was a member and church treasurer of Union Chapel General Baptist Church in Westmoreland, TN. Jack retired from Berry Plastics after 40 years. Jack loved his family dearly and his grandchildren held a special place in his heart. He loved yard work and keeping his lawn religiously mowed every week with his Exmark zero turn mower. He did small engine repair, tinkering and creating things in his shop. Jack was one of a kind and loved aggravating, pranking, and clowning around with everyone he met. He loved to talk about Jesus and loved everybody.
