I am so sorry for your loss. I got to know Jack from seeing him in distribution at CCL over the past few years. He was such a kind and jolly man, who always had a smile and a Hi for you and could turn a bad day into a good one before you left. He will be truly missed ! Please take comfort in knowing that he is now with his maker and will be your guardian angel. Cherish all the memories and keep his big smile going. May God bless and be with you!

Jack was one of the easiest employees one could ever hope for. Always there, always faithful, always wanting to do the best he could. I enjoyed hearing about his beloved Becky. May he rest in peace.

Holding Jack in the light. He was such a sweet man who always lent a compassionate ear and a warm smile. His love for his family was apparent to all. I hope there's a beach for Jack in heaven. May God bless him and the entire Talton family.

So very sorry to hear about Jack's passing. I work at CCL and would often run into him at the employee break area where we'd chat a while. He was such a kind soul - rest in peace Jack and prayers for the family during this time.

We are so heartbroken to hear of Jack\'s passing. He was a dear friend, colleague and we still consider him our Pastor!! He was such a kind, funny and amazing man. He forever changed our lives by helping us get closer to the Lord and by joining us in Holy matrimony. We are so grateful to have known him. We miss you all so much since moving a few years ago. We are so thankful we had Jack praying over our marriage and when I was carrying our sweet boys. Jack was such a devoted pastor, husband and friend. His preaching blessed our lives so much. He would get you so excited about the love of the Lord and Heaven\'s glory!! I know he is shouting and rejoicing with his Lord and Savior in Gloryland!!! I wish we could be there today but we can\'t make it. Please know our hearts and prayers are with you!! We know we will see our friend again one day!! We love yall so much!!! 💗 Please reach out because we no longer know how to get in touch. I tried calling Jack days before his death to let him know about my Grandma\'s passing. I actually learned of his death on the funeral home website because my grandma was also there. We are praying for you all!! We loved Jack!! I posted a few pics from our wedding day so glad to have these memories.
