Our prayers are with your families. I knew Jack through my parents Jim and Sylvia (Bradford)Hayden. My mother was a first cousin to Jack and Jeannine. Mom spent a lot of time when she moved to Columbus Grove, with Jeannine and Aunt Mae. She and Jeannine were good friends and classmates. Please accept condolences from our families, Jim Hayden, Pam Hayden Harrington (John) and family, Brad Hayden, and Greg and I and family. Wish we could all be there with hugs, but understand and embrace the situation we are all in.

I’m sorry for the loss of your father. I remember going to football games in your dad’s conversion van. Your dad was very involved as a coach for everything from football in the fall, basketball in the winter and baseball in the spring. I remember when your dad to a line foul ball in the eye during a Pawnee baseball game and he just walked it off and returned to coaching. I remember when he would play 21 with us in the driveway on grand ave. I remember mostly how kind he was to all us neighborhood kids. I pray for comfort for you and all your family in your loss. May God grant you peace and fond memories until you are reunited with both your Mom and Dad in Heaven. Your friend Darrell A Clay aka Soup

I became a friend of Jack and Shirley through Shawnee Alliance Church. I will miss seeing him at the traditional service each Sunday when I would always receive the firmest handshake one can imagine. I'm sure Jack greeted the Lord with that same handshake when he got to heaven.
My prayers continue for Shirley and the rest of Jack's family. May God continue to bless each of you.
