  1. Donna And Family
    Im very sorry for your loss.
    I have not seen Jack in many years. When I read about his passing, it brought back many fond memories of brighter days when we were kids in high school. He was always doing something to make someone laugh. He was a friend I was honored to have.

    My Deepest Sympathy

  2. Donna,

    So sad to hear about Jackie. His picture on the preceding page is how I remember him and that silver tooth he had! He was always laughing. I remember his puppies in the cellar and his sliding on the hardwood floors in his socks! Mary always kept lots of Pepsi and Coke in the house for the Gibbs card parties!So glad he had many friends!

  3. I cannot believe you are gone, Jack! Donna, Jackie and jeremy—I send you blessings and prayers for strength. God bless you all, Linda

  6. Donna, I am so sorry for the loss of Jack. Jack was one of a kind. He was ready at the drop of a dime to share a story and a laugh with everyone he came into contact with. And we can’t forget the food. He was always eager to show off his cullinary expertise. I had a chance to reconnect with Jack just a few weeks ago and we chatted for quite a while. I will forever remember his hospitality, his genuine sense of humor, and his love for you and his family. He will be missed.

  11. Donna…I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed working with Jack at Vidmar. You two were a blessing to all us employees. The Yearly BBQ’s were full of great food and many many stories to tell for the years to come. He was a fabulous cook and I always enjoyed his crock pot dishes. You could always count on Jack to help you repair your vehicle…He will be missed.

  12. Donna & family: I was shocked when Donna Jean called and told me about Jack. So many great memories of Jackie when we were growing up on Sage St. I know Donna Jean & I drove him nuts! But he always let us hang around. I was lucky enough to see Jack and the whole family last year at his dad’s birthday celebration. The thoughts and prayers of the whole Kowulich family are with you. Jackie will be remembered always. Take care of each other & god bless.

  13. Jeremy, we have some GREAT memories with your dad when he was our Boy Scout Den Leader. He was a great man and left an impression in my life at a young age. I have never forgotten all of the things he did with us for scouts. Thank you for sharing your dad and those memories. My heart goes out to you and your mom. I know God has a special place for him. Take care and be well, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  14. Oh,Donna…I am so sorry. You will hear this many times, yet I need to say it too. Jack was one of my favorite people in my life. Always a smile, a kind word and insight that had a positive spin on whatever we talked about. I don’t make baked ziti that I don’t think of you two. The angels are dancing to welcome your man home. I send you both light and love as you journey forward. Jil

    To Jack and family,
    May you be full of love and kindness,
    May you be well.
    May you have inner peace and be at ease,
    May you be happy.

  16. Donna we are so so sorry. We was just talking about you guys this last weekend saying we realy need to get together. More time that we wasted, not doing just talking, and then it’s to late. We can not tell you how bad we feel. We want you to know that you are in our prayers and thoughts. If you need anything at all please call 719-557-1795. Honey I will never forget the sweet way he always greeted me, no matter how bad his day he always had something sweet to say to me and made me smile. And how much he loved my brownies. True friends don’t have to talk daily they just know the other one is there. Again we are so very sorry. Love Kathy and Marty Fowles. We will see you Saturday.
