I was very sad to read of Jack's death in today's Southland Times. I had much respect for Jack. As the agricultural editor of the paper and as a former secretary of the NZ Wapiti Society I became to know him as a top deer farmer and a person of integrity. Jack was a leading and respected figure in the deer farming fraternity among which I know he was well thought of. He will be remembered as a man who was always forthcoming with honest and well thought out opinions, often with a touch of humour. I always enjoyed his company whenever we met especially through the Wapiti Society . Jack will be sadly missed by all who knew him well. Please pass my condolences on to Jack's wife Jenny and family.

Jenny and family my deepest sympathy to you all in your hour of need. One of my fondest childhood memories is spending time with the Pullar family , neighbours across the road. In east Winton .
Jack and Hazels parents were extremely kind to my parents Tina and Hughie . Welcoming us into their very warm home giving us fruits from a lovely orchard and baby sitting us occasionally.
We were delighted when we were introduced to you Jenny, delighted that Jack had found his one true love.
55 years later three children and three grandchildren you will be heartbroken at your loss.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
Rest In Peace Jack ......... you died on what would have been Tina’s 99th birthday. Ⓜ️💕

It was with a real sense of sadness that Jill and I read of Jack's death in the Southland Times last week.
My enduring memories of Jack are a good farmer and stock man, with firm strongly held views, who possessed a dry sense of humour which he often kept hidden.
I have many strong memories of buying rams from littleborn in the early 80's and buying stags in more recent times, Jacks stock and low keyed sales approach provided us with clear headed Romney rams, and high growth rate deer that improved our farming operation.
In my time involved in the politics of the deer industry I appreciated Jacks support, and I like many other deer farmers owe Jack and the other original members of the Elk Wapiti Society a debt of thanks as their vision and drive has benefited the industry as a whole.
Jenny, Geoffrey, you and your family have been in our thoughts these last days as you morn the passing of a good man.

Deepest sympathy on the sad loss of Jack.
Our hearts go you all. Jack was a great team member and committee member of the club and always got things done with no fuss.
I enjoyed our banter on the phone or together which I will miss.
Thank you Jenny for the company of both of you at the club. We enjoyed the pair of you with very fond memories, from everyone from the Winton Central Bowling club, with all our love and thoughts to you and all the family.

I have only just found Jacks funeral notice and I am saddened at his passing. Many a bowl was rolled in fun and competition with topics of conversation varied, interesting and often amusing. My thoughts and best wishes to all the family.
