     “Mr. Jack“ had 3 loves of his life: God; his precious wife of 62 years, Sue, whom he affectionately called “Honey;” and his family.

He loved to dote on his family and also had to occasionally brag. He spent his life serving the Lord with some of his best friends: Billy and Jaqueline Richardson, Floyd and Floy Akins and Anne and Lynn Ford.

They loved to travel together, especially to Pigeon Forge. He also loved to travel with his family to the beach. His other pastimes were golfing and Alabama football.

And he had been known to lead Bear and Nick to National Championships with his advice through the TV.

His beautiful unconditional love, encouragement, and affection for those closest to him will be forever missed.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021, at 2 p.m. (EDT) at the graveside in Oakwood Cemetery in Lanett. The Reverend Rusty Letson will officiate.

Due to the current pandemic, attendees are required to wear masks and socially distance.
