Please accept our heartfelt condolence for the loss of Jack. He was a pillar of the Hillsboro community and will be greatly missed. He was the first and best Nationwide agent we ever had. One of my earliest memories of Patty and Jack was the chivaree they had for them prior to the wedding. For our friends in southern Ohio this was also called a "belling". Memories also include hunting for mushrooms in the woods on the Walker farm. Memories keep us alive for always!

Dear Patty & Family:
Please accept our deepest sympathy and prayers. Jack was one of the ‘good guys in the white hats’ club and will be missed by everyone who knew him. Jack supported our community in so many ways and gave countless hours making Hillsboro a better place to live, work, be educated, and enjoy life to the fullest. It was a privilege to call him a friend, but I am sure those precious memories you’ve shared together will ease the heartache his passing has left behind. God Bless. 🙏🏻

Jack and Pat always set in the same pew each Sunday. It was their spot.
Their presence filled each of the congregation with a warmth of knowing that the Walker’s were right where they belonged. It will be so difficult to not see the two of them together on Sunday mornings. They were a blessing, to our congregation and have left warm memories in our hearts. With love and friendship.
