Dearest Sister Josie and Aunt Josie –

We will miss Uncle Jack forever. Mom and I are eternally grateful that you married such a kind, generous and compassionate soul which brought him into your sister’s family . He was a brilliant man with so many natural, blessed gifts from God.

No matter what was requested of Jack or my Uncle Jack, he never denied anyone . He looked after his sister diligently until she left him to be with God, even though she lived in Charleston, WV .

He visited the sick and constantly encouraged them to fight on .

Uncle Jack was the finest electrician anyone could find . He wired homes and completed endless jobs for his in-laws during his younger years . As an artist , he encouraged me to take this difficult talent on as a way to rejuvenate the mind and soul during difficult times .

If it weren’t for my Uncle Jack , my late Father would have never owned a boat as he introduced us to watercraft off of Wheeling island in the early 70’s .

Finally , he was a deep thinker and had philosophical insight . We would talk endlessly about so many subjects .

He will be sadly missed by us as he is at peace with God .

Love always –

Sister In Law – Thelma T Kittle
Niece – Margaret Ann Kittle
