Jack married Rosalie Richards December 17, 1954 in the Salt Lake Temple. He was devoted to her and to their family in every way. They have 7 children, 20 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Jack's family members were the focus of his life. He was an excellent father and a loving and involved grandfather.
Jack had an interesting and colorful life which included working for the railroad, the Navy and the FBI. Jack was an attorney and always had a compassionate heart for those in need. In later years, he enjoyed teaching English classes to Spanish-speaking adults. Jack served 2 missions for the LDS Church, one as a young man in the Southwestern States mission, and later as a couple missionary with Rosalie in Costa Rica.
Jack enjoyed studying the gospel and the Book of Mormon daily. This was his hobby and he was truly committed to understanding the gospel and applying it in his life. Above all else, Jack was a great example. He was kind to others, loved to serve people, and was positive and uplifting in every situation. He was selfless and always put others needs before his own. His kindness and encouragement helped family, friends and strangers alike. Jack was truly a follower of Jesus Christ.
Our family will always treasure the time we spent with him, especially the last three weeks of his life enjoying the beauty of Hebgen Lake, Montana together.
