It is impossible to put in words the Christ-like joy I feel when I picture Steve, and now Jack in my mind's eye. Always a picture of joy and optimism, child-like, and very real for me growing up, and even now, seems like yesterday, despite the blur of years and grind of 2 jobs and my own wife and 2 great kids. Jack was awesome! My prayers are with you Aunt Betty Sue, Brenda, Charlet, Faye, Laura, Danita, and God bless you in Jesus Name! Love, Dale T., Becky, Grace, and Gaige Barrett.

Our deepest condolences on the loss of my old friend and neighbor. I will never forget baling hay, playing CYO basketball, and laughing with Jack! It was such an honor for Cletus and I to be servers at the wedding 40 years ago. You can bet I will honor him with a beer to his memory!

Jack was absolutely one of the "good guys". He was as honest and genuine as a person could be. It was an honor to call him friend and he will be missed by everyone he touched.
