    I remembered Mr. Jack when he had the service station across from the Coca-Cola Bottling plant. He would come by in a fire truck and let all the neighborhood children ride if they wanted to. He was such a sweet, kind, and gentle person.

    The thoughts and prayers of the Rudolphs are with the Tully family. We remember Jack with such kindness. He looked out for my parents and helped my dad when he had a heart attack. The friendship he forged with my Uncle Roy Clarkson over the love of growing corn brought us great happiness. Our condolences to your family.
