Passing of Grand pa Jack

Post by rcrgl1800 » Sun Apr 16, 2017 1:08 pm

We have just learned of the passing of a Romeo. Grand pa Jack passed away Saturday April 15, 2017. His cancer had returned. I know a lot of you knew him but for those of you that don't he was a past coordinator for the Southeast Kansas Romeos. He had moved to north of the river and had been active with the KC Romeos. When we get the info for the arrangements we will let you know.

So sorry to hear that. I've known Jack for some years serving with him as an officer of the Kansas State Firefighter's Assoc. travelling around the State doing fire schools. Such great memories. My sincere condolences to Vicky and the kids.

Johnatan came from California to spend a little time with Grandpa and his family, as he did last year. A fine you man growing like a weed. I think Jack said the lady on his left Anja Weippert was a foreign exchange student from Germany that had lived with Jack and his family while she went to school. She is back visiting her US family.
