Pat preceded him in death on January 19, 1991. Jack married Jo Ann Brady Main in Wichita, Kansas, on December 26th, 1993. Jack and Jo lived most of their time together in Weslaco, Texas. Jo preceded him in death on July 13, 2011. Jack was also preceded in death by a grandson, Matthew Baptist.

We were so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was such a neat guy, always doing something to help others.

When my dad passed away at age 50 in 1961, he and his brother Bob came to the farm twice a day to help Mom milk the 30+ dairy cows that Mom and Dad had been milking morning and night for years. They came and helped out until Mom got the cattle sold that summer. And then your folks had me stay at their home before and after school while mom went to beauty school.

God bless them for all they did, and all they meant to us.

Jack was not one to wait for his passing to live in Heaven. He made it here through his faith and service to his family and neighbors.

Sorry to hear about your dad. I remember listening to your dad and mine setting at our kitchen table and telling old stories about their old times. They would get to laughing so hard they would almost be crying! Two buddies for sure. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

We have been on a trip out of the country and just got back to hear the sad news about Jack. Our memories of your dad, grandparents, and aunts and uncle were always our visits to Kansas when we were younger. We loved coming back to reunions so we could visit with our Kansas cousins. Mayfield was and is a very special place. The Yearout clan was very special and Jack will be missed. Love and prayers to all of you going through this difficult time.

Sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I can remember Jack delivering fuel to dad when I was a kid and helping on Grandma Dorothy's farm. I know these are tough times as we just lost Dad also. I'm sure Jack and Dad are talking about old times now. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family.
