    Mike and Leslie………my thoughts are with you……..Mike my memory of your Dad is Prep basketball games in the old Mullen Gym…..I was playing JV before your games….and your Dad would come in about halftime (and how could you not know that was Mike Peterson’s Dad) of our games and shout encouragement and many times I could hear him say grow up you little JV shits cuz you need to carry the load next year and then he would walk away smiling up to the stands

    Jack was always a fixture at Martinique. He kept watch over the pool and often threw down candy to put a smile on our faces. He attended all the birthday celebrations with a great smile, laugh, and a can of mixed nuts. We never went on a trip without his “Be careful and have fun!” He will be remembered and missed.
