I'm sorry to hear about Jack's passing. I have some fond memories when we worked together at Fort Sam and after we both had retired. For a while we were neighbors (two houses apart) and he and Josie sort of kept an eye on my family while I was away on TDY. I remember that he was sometimes called "Fuzz", although I don't know if we did that to his face. He was also teased about not knowing what "copper" was an its origins. (Copper buttons on a policeman's uniform, with the obvious result, the policemen were sometimes called coppers. The fuzz thing came up because he hadn't heard that name related to law enforcement officers. I remember that Jack was liason with the local law enforcement agencies and then Operations and finally CO while I was there. He was a good man, and what better compliment can we get after having been around for so many years.
