I've been away from the site for a long time, came back today to read this sad news. Jack was a great guy. Truly. I worked with Jack at the Fort Stewart Office back in the early 90s. He was the CIC at the time. Jack always had a story to tell and not just our 'war stories'. Jack ran for Sheriff as I recall. Lost, but I drove around with a 'Jack Simmons for Sheriff' stick on my truck. Super guy who will be missed. RIP my friend.
