October 15, 1947 – March 29, 2013
Jackson passed away peacefully at his home Friday, March 29, 2013 at the age of 65 years. He was happy to be at his home.
Jack had a sense of humor we all knew. He loved his kids and his nieces and nephews, especially his grandchildren. He had a heart of gold and treated everyone with kindness and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He was a hard worker in his younger days. Jackson spent his last days with his niece Dana, they had a special connection and took care of each other every day. We will miss his smile, his giggle and his never ending love for all of us…On behalf of the family, we would like to thank all the people who looked out for and cared for him. Goodbye Savage we will always love you <3.
