I am so sorry I am out of town! I knew Marty before Jack as she was my father's first office personnel in the 50's. He was Dan Cole, who opened Cole's Tire and supply. She was wonderful to us, and Jack was a bonus!
Sorry for you loss and happy he was in your life. Peace and understanding to you all! I am so happy our paths crossed.
Sincerely, Ginny Cole Ferguson

My prayers go out to the Lynch family. I am only one of the 4 Hooper kids that had “ Mr. Lynch” as our gym teacher and a coach as we all attended Warren Elementary. He was a very kind and sweet man and we talk about our gym days quite often.He taught every one of us how to push ourselves and excel in whatever we tried to accomplish. He was a great man and I am honored to have known him.He will be sadly missed.

I was so lucky to have him in elementary school at Warren. He was so kind and always was so positive. There are four of us. " Hooper kids ". He lived to push us to do our best. He was so great to make sure each and every one worked hard and he always praised every one. My favorite teacher and coach. My husband worked at American Cyanmid. Mr Lynch was the gate guard. He would always say hello Jack and if I needed to go through the gate I could not call him by his first name. He was always Mr. Lynch to me. He will be so missed. What a guy !
