Ken Bredehoeft, our chaplain, was trying to reach Jack after he missed our 2019 Reunion in Charleston SC.  Ken was saddened to find his obituary.  Jack and Carol were at the 2003 and 2004 reunions.  After Carol passed away in 2010 Jack came that year and to every reunion until 2019.  We will all miss Jack  with his quiet cheerful manner and big smile.
