He married Linda McLain in Lawton and together they led an active life in the rodeo industry. Jack started off in the rodeo arena by riding bulls and bareback horses. Later he became a pick-up man for both Terry Wall and the Bucking S Rodeo companies. Jack worked for Jake Adair plumbing for 10 years and Earl Glover for over 20 years. Jack was known around the area as the go-to cowboy; when folks had stray cattle out, Jack was the one they called to come help round them up. Jack was very involved with and is one of the past presidents of the Lawton Rangers Rodeo. Jack loved watching Bobby and Shari's young bulls buck and enjoyed his trips to Las Vegas and the PBR. He was very much involved with everything his grandchildren did, including driving numerous miles to sporting events, stock shows and rodeos. Jack was a very devoted and loving husband, father, and PaPa.
