Jack was a great neighbor when my son Brad and family lived on an acreage near the Broder family. Jack was always there helping Brad with various tasks on the acreage. I also remember when he had buffalo on his farm and would call them to the feed bunk by banging on a large, metal basket. He and JoAnn were just super great friends for Brad and Mary. JoAnn, Jack was a blessing to so many people.
