  5. It was with great sadness that I learned of Jack’s passing. I got to know him when he was a youngster – his late 80s! A man who clearly knew the way this world spun around; mind as sharp as a knife – a proper leftist too; highly commendable. What a double act, in the Legion, with his cousin Gordon. Those were good nights.
    Jackie and Martin you’ve done him proud the way you have cared and looked after him these past years – even when some Herbert smuggled him up to Palace of Westminster for a day out on the p*** at his advanced age. What a laugh we all had that day.
    So, it’s cheerio Jack “Tar”; it really was a privilege to know you. Aye, aye.

  8. Dear Jack
    We will miss your kindness and humour. So sad you just missed the big one. We will remember your friendly smile and we’re so sorry to drag you round the cliff top walk on New Year’s Day , not knowing that the sole of one of your shoes was missing!
    In true ”Jack-style” you never mentioned it!
    Rest in peace
    With all our Love
    Rick, Helen and family

  9. Jack’s joviality has always been something I have admired – often finding myself looking forward to amusing anecdotes about his recent escapades. Although these became less frequent over the last few years, it is something Tom has also noticed and had the pleasure of experiencing. Both of us will miss him dearly!

  11. We were privileged to have some glimpses of Jack’s recent years and his warmth, happiness and love with his family were heart-warming to see, as was the devotion and love for him in return. Jack always gave out a sense of fun and joy after his life and service. His last experiences were wonderful, creating so many precious memories. You will be missed but there are so many memories of how you lived life to the full, supported by your caring and loving family.
    With love,
    Tricia and James

  13. After reading Jack’s tribute
    I can understand now how he was so grounded logical.
    I have clear memories in my head of what a lovely clever man he was.
    He was a wonderful man.
    Jacqueline & Martin you looked after him so well.
    So much love and care for each other.
    I think you had the best father in the World.
    Wishing much strength in this difficult time.
    Love to you both.
