Message: Mr. Jack was wonderful friend and neighbor. He taught us all we know about ranching, farming and Cadillac racing. We will miss his devilish wit, entertaining stories and genuine love of people. His eyes twinkled while he was pulling your leg and face beamed when he offered some beloved Spring strawberries or ripe Warren tomatoes. He was generous beyond description, but also enjoyed garden gifts from neighbors. Mr. Jack was a charmer, a shameless flirt and a wonderful dreamer. We have no doubt, that he is already working on his heavenly farm and planning this season's crops. Mr. Jack, we are proud to have known you. Our world was a better place because you were in it and we will miss you terribly. Chris and Gloria

Message: I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My mother and father were goodfriends with Jack. My condolences to all family members. My father, Enid Nall Barron passed away July '79 and mother, Hellen Barron Cone passed away August 2006. I know they enjoyed their visits with Jack and the family. And as a little girl I remember their laughter and was always intrigued by their beautiful daughter, Starr. Gary, Gail and Ellen (the Barron children) offer our deepest sympathy and pray that God will comfort you during this time of grief. God bless you all, Ellen Barron Petersen Dallas, Tx
