“Jack” was born in Martinez and passed away on Jan. 7, 2018 in Grants Pass, Ore. He spent the majority of his life in Garden Farms in Atascadero. He enjoyed life to the fullest and will be loved and missed for a long time. He is preceded in death by his son, Tom and daughter, Sue. He is survived by his wife, Barbara, daughter, Jaclin, son, Johan, stepchildren: Kim, Brian and Teri. He is also survived by thirteen grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren. Jack’s motto was “Life is Good” and wore it proudly on his left arm. Rest in peace my beloved husband and best friend.
