    Huntley Family:

    So sorry to hear of Jack's passing. He was a good friend of my Dad, Keith Menken. I have fond memories of going to the house in Denver and playing games with Jeff, Jill and Troy. 

    May the blessings of God heal your sorrows.

I was a back up. It was a few years ago that Joyce and I visited with Jack at the Cancer Center, and now they are borh gone. Jack was a special guy. May all of you find strengh in the days ahead and good menories will bring a smile.

    We had tried to call Jack and sing Happy Birthday to him, not knowing then that it was too late. Jack was a special cousin to Janet, and all of you, Carol, Jeff, Jill, Troy and Zach are special to us.  We sorrow with you. Love, and God's peace.

    So sorry for your loss.  I only had a few encounters with Jack, when he worked on my riding mower, but he made a lasting impression.  Very nice man with lots of integrity.  He made a difference.

    Carole, we were so saddened to hear about Jack. We always loved it when he would stop by and visit! We could see him going downhill before we moved, but he wouldn’s admit it or give up! You stay strong, Carole. You have a great support group with your family! 
    you all have our sincerest sympathies. Jack was a wonderful man. Hugs and prayers.
