A lifelong farmer, Jack married Kristine Wiederholtz on June 21, 1991.

He spent many happy hours out in the pasture tending his cattle and watching them graze.

Funeral services were scheduled for Wednesday, July 9 at 10 a.m. at Faith United Methodist Church, Polo, with burial following at Fairmount Cemetery, Polo. 

Arrangements were made by Polo Family Funeral Home. 

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund will be established at a later date.
