  1. Jack was one of a kind. I loved how he was a proud veteran, loyal to his friends and loved getting back to visit Weinert, even when it was very difficult for him. He used to call me for camera and photography advice as he got his animal photography equipment together. I admired that he wanted to photograph some of the wonders of creation.
