Dear Linda and family,
George and I and the kids send you our deepest condolence
in hearing of the passing of Jack. "Mr. Horner" I'd always say in front of the kids in respect. We had many fine conversations over the fence and we are going to miss him.

Jack and I both graduated in 1966. Both of us were into cars and we spent a lot of time in detention reading Hot Rod magazines. We spent a lot of time in Jack's '49 Chevy cruising and participating in street racing in Chambersburg. I lost touch with Jack when he went into the Navy but just recently began hanging out again at the Greenvillage cruise-ins. Jack was a good guy who always would lend a hand where it was needed. He'll be truly missed.
