I will forever cherish our last visit. We happened to go take a ride and decided to stop and visit that Tuesday. We had such a great talk. I'm so grateful that I got to see you that last time. Over the years you helped both myself and children with a home and employment. I will never forget your generosity. I'm going to miss knocking on your door to the sound of "come in", with that voice of yours. My boys were pretty upset. They said how nice of a guy you were tothem. I've also had the pleasure of meeting many new friends because of you. You were such an awesome friend and things will never be the same without you around. You will forever be in my heart and soul....

I love this obituary. It made me laugh, which is what Jack always did. Made me smile and laugh. He was a very giving and lovable person. I was a single parent raising two kids and the only income I had to help was from my job. Jack knew I’d never take a handout so he offered me a little bit of work to help me catch up and I’m forever grateful for his kindness. I’m so grateful to have known him and to have been able to call him a friend.
Rest in peace Jack. The kindness and generosity you showed Stacey and me will never be forgotten. To Charlie, Mrs. Dianne, Heidi and all of the family: please know that you are all in our prayers.

I would like to send my condolences to the Busby Family upon reading about your recent loss! I hope that this message of comfort and hope helps your family take refuge in prayer at Psalms 57: 1, and know that your loved one is alive in gods memory. At Luke 20:37,38 may the God of comfort, comfort you at this time. God has made the loving provision for a resurrection, so that you can see, Mr. Busby again and such hope Jesus told us about is found at John 5:28-29. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss!
I miss you little brother, I miss hearing your voice, your laughter but most of all I miss your love, you had a heart bigger than anyone I know. We will forever hold your memory in our hearts & cherish every moment that we got to share with you, until we meet again, fly high Jack Jack.

I’m very sorry to learn of Jack no longer being with us. I remember him standing out in school and being popular with the girls with his good looks!
Godspeed Jack and may He strengthen family and friends.
