Jack was always considerate of my family and I enjoyed his company. He was a good sports fan and a good father.

My first thought is that Jack is in Heaven with my mom, Thelma Locke, talking about the good times at the Nazarene Church. Watching those little kids growing into adults. I know we all loved the cookies and crafts my mom helped with and when Jack brought those horses, what a treat. He was a wonderful man with a wonderful family. You were blessed to have him in your lives. He will be remembered fondly.

I am proud to be Jack Byron Brous's grandaughter. He was a wonderful man who made me a better person. He enriched the lives of everyone who knew him. I will miss him and can't wait until I can see him again in Heaven.
