I see in the Colville paper that
Jack died on Jan 20, 2007. How do they know the day he died? Did he leave a note?

I found Mr. Beardsley on Monday March 26 between Hartline and Coulee City about a mile off Highway #2. On January 20th lights were seen on this remote hill side but in the morning the truck could not be seen. It was assumed somebody took a joyride through the field. On Monday, March 26th, a reflection was seen in a draw on the hillside from the highway. I went up to investigate because it was on my property. Unfortunantly, I discovered the truck and it apparantly had been there since January. The ignition was off but the lights had been left on. That was the reason the truck had been seen that Saturday night in January but was not seen later on when the battery died. An open chrome diamond plate tool box in the back of the truck reflected the sunlight at 9:30 a.m.,to the highway. If I had'nt seen the reflection, we may not have found him till harvest in the summer.

Russ,
I am so sorry that you had to be the one to find Jack. He was my first love we stayed in touch until about 12 years ago,(for 20 yrs). He was always very important to me. This is a tragic loss for everyone that cared about him. I am very thankful that you found him when you did and it didn't take until summer.

randy,
if you still read this, I am the one that talked to you at jack's memorial service. I am so sorry about your dad. I really loved him. Both your mom and dad were always very nice to me. Sometimes your mom was the only thing that kept me sane during my crazy relationship with Jack. I hope your mom is taking care of herself. I haven't talked to her since just after your dad passed away. Jack has been in my heart since I was 14 years old. I think about him constantly and I really regret that I didn't know he was in such bad shape mentally. Maybe I could have helped him. I had always been there for him before and he knew that he could always count on me because he knew I would always love him. This time I didn't know he needed me. This probaly seems wierd to you since you never even knew me. Maybe your mom told you the story. Jack was married to Penny when I met him and it was just a sad story from then on, with both of us making wrong choices and never ending up together. I will always wonder how things would have turned out if we had been able to be together. I will miss him every day. Take care of yourself, your family and your mom.

I was Jack's cousin. We grew up as kids next door. When I accidently opened this page I was taken back. Jack was not a child molester!!! He had a girlfriend who was mad at him and made accusations against him. He was unable to get out from under this unfortunate situation. For anyone out there who just read the headlines and made judgement shame on you for saying RELIEF. Hopefully one day you do not have someone who makes false accusations against you. Jack was a truly loving and giving person. I have kids and I was never afraid of having him with them, they loved him. He would NEVER hurt any child. He loved and helped raise a few of them without anything morally or physically wrongdoing!!!

Vickie,
No offense.
There are things that no family likes to see. Or hear.
Jack was not evil, he was A product of his enviroment. And then when you add being Gay , in A small logging town, and not feeling comfortable with your sexuality, Whats A person to do.
No one is blamming Jack.
You are the one who brought up MOLESTATION.
How far down do the bones fall.

I cannot even believe anyone who knew Jack would think he was a child molester or rapist or gay. I knew him for 32 years before he died. No way would he ever hurt anyone. Especially a child. I had 3 young girls around him and they loved him and he would never hurt them. And I KNEW Jack in ways that I KNOW he was not gay. I know the story behind the sex offender part and I knew immediatley it was not true. I am sure that being labeled a sex offender had alot to do with why he died the way he died. I can't imagine him living with that label. The person that caused that label to be there should be ashamed of herself. I have loved Jack since I was 14 and I will always love and miss him very much

Carlene4,
Thank you so much for your nice comments. It is very nice to hear positive comments froms someone who knew Jack but wasn't family or someone who had a lifelong emotional attachment. When I met him, he was 20 and I was 14.....a long time ago (1975). His death was the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. It really does help to hear people like you stick up for him. Even though he is gone, he still deserves to be defended against people judging what they don't know. Thank you!

I am so shocked and amazed by some of these comments that have been made about Jack. I am from this small town and have known him since I was a kid and he was friends with my parents. I eventually became involved with with him for a short time but always seen and talked to him thereafter. Loving..caring and compassionate he was. And as far as the gay comment?! Are you serious!?! It's sad to know that people listen to the media or others opinion's and feel they need to drag others down.. Sad! I saw Jack at the store previously and then I heard of his passing which saddened so many. It really does not matter how people viewed him negatively.. Apparently they are clueless.. I just know he was loved and those memories will never be taken away by anyone!!
