  2. I had the pleasure of working with Jack for many years at U. I. We were also on the company bowling team.

    Jack was affectionately known as the “Paymaster”, friendly to everyone, liked and respected by all. Rest in peace, Jack. May god Bless you.

  3. I grew up a few houses away from Mr. Westwood. I recall him being a quiet friendly person. I could only describe him as the perfect neighbor. I took a walk in my old neighborhood and met Mr Westwood on his front lawn just a few years ago. I had the chance to tell him what a good neighbor he was and at the same time apologize for being one of the obnoxious kids on the street.
