Elaine, Peggy and Brad - We just wanted to express our condolences on the passing of your dad. He was a good friend to us and we always enjoyed our time spent with him. Unfortunately we were unable to attend his viewing or services due to another family members funeral.Our thoughts and prayers have been with you.

Elaine, Peggy and Brad it is difficult to express our thoughts and memories of your father, Jack and hope that the words do justice to the man that he was and the wonderful, long life that he lived. We know him mostly through working in the summers at RH Marlin where he was intense, dedicated and a man's man! It was a pleasure to work for him, with him and to know him in this capacity, because we also knew of his other side --- the loving husband, father and Christian, who was willing to share his resources, care for others and contribute to the community to make Bloomington better for all of us. May you have peace, comfort, love and lots of laughter as you share the memories of his life.
Coach Wayne and Jan Nichols

Any pastor would be very blessed to have a church full of members like Jack. I last saw him in March when he was having a good day & we had a great visit. --Wally Jeffs (LUBC 1974-1989)

Elaine, Peggy & Brad,

We are so sorry for your loss. But we know where your Dad is & we know he is rejoicing seeing all the loved ones that are already in Heaven. We are not going to be @ either the viewing or funeral. We are out of town for the week. We loved your Dad & your Mom. I remember all the good times we had @ your house after church on Sunday evenings & the fun our youth group had all together. You Dad was a special person who we loved. We loved hearing your Dad quote scripture off the cuff & we loved his sharing his love of the Lord no matter where he was. He & your Mom & Mom & Dad loved being Gideons & enjoyed the time together @ conventions & just going around the area. Ernie & your Dad & my Dad were also Deacons together & that created another bond that we had with your parents. We will miss your Dad but know that he will always be in our hearts & memories can never be taken away. We love you all & you all plus your families will be in our thoughts & prayers Tuesday especially @ the funeral & in the coming days. Looking forward to seeing all of our loved ones who have gone on one of these days.

Love you all,
Mary & Ernie Frazo
