Last night a great man died.
Herman S Davenport (Jack) was my Father in law and he was a great man.
Jack served in the US air force for 20 years but it was not this that made him great, Jack was just an honest, hard working, loyal and loving man who would do anything for anyone. One of the greatest things that Jack did was be the father to my wonderful wife, Julia.
The latter years of Jack’s life were blighted by Alzheimer’s disease but even through that he knew who his daughter was and always smiled when she talked to him about his Grand children, Michael and Elizabeth.
Jack was callously exploited, robbed, neglected and abused by his Pastor who he had taken to be a friend of 30 + years, the result of this was Julia and her cousins spent so much time going through papers and appearing in courts they were robbed of some precious time with Jack. I hope you are proud of yourself “Dr” William G Stephen of Avon Indiana?
I will always remember the good things about Jack and use the example of his life to make me a better man.
Herman S Davenport.
