We will miss Jack. He was a good friend of my dad's, Billl Kreft. After they were both retired they liked to visit and share a beer. Jack helped me twice when my railing on my back stairs broke - dad came and got it and took it to Jack and they welded it back together. My belief became that Jack had "every" type of equipment a true Northwoods Wisconsin man would ever need. My son got to go with "Grandpa" and get to know Jack also. Billie Kreft and Alex Towne
