So sad to read of Jack's death. I graduated from Parker with him in 1956. I will always remember his great singing voice and his role in Oklahoma our senior year. His voice was so much like his brother, Hovie. My blessings to his family.

Brenda, Kelli and Family, Lois and I want you to know that you have our sincerest sympathy. I always looked up to Jack and when I was about five years old, I would follow him all around the neighborhood. Even though he was with friends his own age, it never seemed to bother him. We are so fortunate to have had Jack in our lives. He will always be remembered and loved. May our Lord's love comfort you and yours today.

When I was just a tot, Jack sang in a gospel quartet with my father Charles Travis. I so loved when they came to our house to practice, and having been sent to bed, I would lay at the door of my room with my door cracked, so I could continue to hear them. Often I would fall asleep on the floor listening to not only amazing gospel music but fun songs they used to sing, I called him Uncle Jack, and will never forget his kindness to me as a child. It also meant so much when he came to my father’s funeral years later and I got to see him briefly. He will forever live in my memories and I will keep Brenda and his family in my prayers. He was such a special man, my heart goes out to all of you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Brenda and family, I was so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. A memory that I had of you and Jack was when Ted and I got married and you caught my bouquet. Jack was just in the picture then. So maybe that helped the romance along. We celebrated our 55th back on January 30th. We both married wonderful men. May Jack rest in peace and may you be comforted to know that he is with our Heavenly Father and all is well for Jack now. Our deepest sympathy, Ted and Jane Tutterow

To Jack’s family, I remember Jack when he worked Security at BI-LO corporate office. I always thought he was a pleasant, sweet man. Years later I ran into him doing Security at some event and we chatted. I think I saw him at 2 separate events. From then on, I always looked for him at any event. I know you will miss him terribly. My thoughts and prayers will be with you in the coming days.

Jack was a friend from when I first joined the Greenville County Sheriff's Office. He and Lt. Tommy McFarland lead the way to teach me the fundamentals of shooting and made sure I was ready for the job that I was to do. Jack was always kind to everyone and such a pleasure to talk to. RIP my friend and always know your life made a difference in many lives.

Many fond memories of Jack from Parker High. The Tuesday night chorus. The boys octet and our production of Oklahoma. He was also an advisor to me in a matter in our adulthood. I offer my sincerest condolences to his family.
