  1. Sending all my love and prayers for strength for you all during this difficult time. Such a special man, I loved him dearly. He made me smile every single time I saw him.

  2. Every child should have an someone like Uncle Jack in their life. He was a loving, caring, person who loved family. He and Aunt Rosalee were such an influence in my life and an amazing example of how love and marriage should be.
    Besides his uncanny ability to remember jokes and tell great stories, he could whistle like so many birds. I am thankful for Uncle Jack’s presence in my live. I know you are home now Uncle Jack.

  3. Over the years I can truly say that Uncle Jack has been a influence on my life. I have been blessed to have so many fond memories, and to have had him as a Uncle and Friend.
    I looked forward to our family visits and the phone calls we would have with updates on the Taylor family happenings, and to enlighten me with a plethora of jokes and anecdotes to pass along to family, friends and customers.

    Thanks for always providing me with a smile and making me laugh.I will be listening more intent for your bird whistle from above.
    Rest well Road Warrior

  4. Jack, was a dear friend and such a delightful gentleman and Daddy to my dear friends, Jill and Julie. Many know him as a salesman, an uncle, and an acquaintance. I know him as a man, who welcomed me into his family and told me he loved like a daughter. A man, who called and checked on me and saw that I was well. I say a gentleman because he was the truest sense of one with a man of his word, man, who took care of his family, a man with a soft heart, who loved his dogs and little birds and ones who needed his help, a man, who picked your heart up when it needed to be, and a man with a big “o” smile each time he saw you. I loved you Jack, I loved you as a Dad.
