    Thanks Jack , I remember you when I was a kid on Black & White 1960's TV. You inspired me to play sports to stay healthy. We will all miss you. Give a good " Push Up " for the Lord today when you see him. Thanks Jack.

    What a life!! This man dedicated his life to being healthy and feeling great. He's a prime example of what good health habits can do for you. He lived a long healthy life and didn't linger with some aweful lifestyle-related chronic illness like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, or obesity. RIP Jack.
