I was so saddened to hear of Jack's illness and then passing. I knew Jack through USF Holland; as he was our route driver for Dependable Metal. We will really miss having Jack and his sense of humor around the docks. You have our deepest sympathies. Linda & Robert Jones & everyone at Dependable Metal Treating
