    Jack, you will be missed by a lot of people. Thank you for taking the time to help me when we were RC racing and for a lot of laughs at the same time. I really enjoyed painting RC car/truck bodies for you too. The “Capt Jack Racing” livery was one people always knew when they saw it on the track. Orange and light blue. Hope you have a great time in Heaven and get to do some racing there too. -Scott
