I'm saddened to hear a great family Icon like Uncle Jack has left the party - Uncle Jack has given me many great memories, laughs and acts of kindness. The truth be told - I believe Uncle Jack and Aunt Rita are a big part of my being apart of this family. Look forward to seeing him again by his big fishing hole in the sky. Love & Prayers, Hugs & Kisses
Sorry we could not be with you.
Laurie, Mark & the Stump Bunch

Rita, our love to you and yours. We will miss Jack dearly. My favorite recollection is when mom and I came for a visit over New Year's many years ago, and Jack dressed as Baby New Year and wore a diaper! HAAA! It was also Super Bowl time and Jack took my Bronco cap and painted it the color of the Seahawks! I've never known anyone who lived his life more fully...and made the most out of every moment. He is a great inspiration to all. Big hugs, Deidre and Michael

We grieve with his family the loss of our most wonderful friend, a very thoughtful husband, a great father and the epitomy of a super-great grandpa. We will miss Jack forever. May he catch the biggest king salmon that Heaven has to offer. We love the entire family to the moon and back. Love Tim, Trudy, Ross and Thain.

To Aunt Rita and family- I have so many fond memories of Uncle Jack. I remember when I got out of the Navy and you took me in with open arms. Uncle Jack gave me advice and wisdom in life that I will never forget. I also had the chance to get to know my cousins and know more about the “Coy “clan. The camping trips, the laughs, and all the jelly Uncle Jack could eat...these are the things I'll

We were so sad to hear about Jack. Whenever I think of Jack, his smile comes to mind. He always made me think he was up to no good when he smiled. Like he was pulling a fast one on someone. Anyway, we'll miss him. Our prayers and tears are with you Rita and kids.

To Bonnie and the entire Coy family My heart felt prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time. May these words guide and strength you: The stars are gathered and illuminate, to lead us safely though heavens gate. We look behind us at the wonder of the earth, only to remind us where God came from. Way up there, where peace remains, where silent thunders and angels sing. Imagination and amazing grace bring us closer to our home and eternal rest. Ebony Sinclair and The Curtis Family

Rita, Lake Sawyer seems a long time ago, but the memories are as strong as if it was yesterday. From campfires to Blind Man's Bluff and Country Plus we celebrated life with style. If not playing in the band, then dancing to a band, from sharing dinner to sharing breakfast after the dance, from trying to quit smoking as a group, to being sick as a dog as a group. Even though the dance is finished, the music will go on. Love to you and the kids.

I will miss you Jack Coy. You have a special place in my heart and were a huge part of my life and my Jennifer's life. You were an amazing man; a heart of gold and it was filled with so much love. You raised an amazing family and had the must incredible wife any man could ask for. I have so many fond memories of all the fun at Lake Sawyer and the big family meals we had when

My Uncle Jack was my favorite. He always had a smile and a happy attitute of life about him. He carried many burdens in his life. He fought the many battles with humor and determination. I've referred to Uncle Jack and Aunt Rita many times in stories of inspiration how they over came so much. 5 little kids, MS and living in Colorado then Idaho Mts. He was a talented man, his leather tooling, his music and being a good,

We all are so very sad. He was a wonderful man and will be remembered as a very special part of my childhood. His warmth and joy in life set him apart. I loved having you all come to Canada to see us and we will sorely miss his smiling face and warm hugs. Love and prayers to all. Bob and Conda Kalb

Rita and family: I am so sorry, Jack was a very special man to me and my family. He will be missed terribly. I would love to be there with you but due to other commitments, I am not able to be. Rita, I know that Jack is up BSing with Marvin about now and telling all kind of stories. I can almost hear them now. Always know that I am here whenever you need someone to talk to or anything else Love Teresa
