We will always be grateful for Frank and Ann Crickman and Don and Jackie Mckinney for bringing four beautiful children into our lives that our parents loved like grandchildren.

He worked for the Ford Motor Company for 42 years at the Chicago Heights Stamping Plant. A cowboy and a gardener, he always had a horse and loved to ride. His retirement years were spent joyfully on the back of his horse Sunnybird riding beside his son Mark. He spent many a night enjoying a game of cards with his wife Arlene, family and friends. Anyone who ever really knew Jack couldn't do anything but like him. We would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to the staff at Rock Run Memory Care Center and the staff at Kindred Hospice.
