Thank you aa so very much for coming here.

Jack passed away on May 21, 2015, from a massive heart attack.  He dealt with a heart condition for several years, aggravated by treatment for leukemia in the last few years.  He was so mentally strong in handling the advertises he face.

Jack had a very interesting career history.  He graduated from West Point in 1961, and had a few years as an officer in the U.S. Army.  Including a stint in the infantry in Alaska.

Prior to attending West Point, he went to Pasadena City College in Southern California and took great pride in hav8ing played the tuba in the Rose Parade.

He eventually taught 6th grade elementary schoolfor 15 years in Los Angeles and here in Carson City.  He earned a masters degree from University Nevada Reno and was a long time UNR football fan. His last job was his favorite -- He retired in 1997 after about 13-14 years as a mining property appraiser for the State of Nevada Taxation.

Jack and Linda married in 1962.  Married for 53 years.  Living in Alaska, Southern California and in Carson since in 1971.

They fled the smog of LA and loved the blue skies and mountains of this area.  They always had an RV and made many long trips prior to and especially during their retirement.

Jack and Linda were each other's best friend and buddy.  Not having a family, they were still a "complete" unit.  After retirement, they spent all their time together.  Linda has wonderful memories of happy times with her buddy and "leader".
