Jackie was my next-door, over-the fence neighbor when I was a teen in Ironton, Ohio (late 1960s). I have very fond memories of him and had heard in the 1990s that he lived in Lucasville, but our paths never crossed after that. I am so sorry for his loss to your family. May God grant you peace in this time of sorrow. Stephanie (Anderson) Neff
