Message: Uncle Jay was a very impressive man; his service record speaks for it’s self and also his continuing service at the Pine Bluff Arsenal. Even today after many years after his retirement if his name is mentioned you can tell how proud people are to say they knew him. As his niece I too agree he was an impressive man, the stories he told I would not have believed except “You never doubted Uncle Jay”, you knew his stories were true. That was Uncle Jay, an impressive man that made an impression on everyone who knew him. We love and miss him dearly.
