    A long, long time ago I can still remember how that music Used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance That I could make those people dance And maybe they'd be happy for a while But February made me shiver With every paper I'd deliver Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step I can't remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride Something touched me deep inside The day the music died So, bye-bye, Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye Singin', "This'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die" A very much loved grandad is now with a very much loved grandma! Together forever and always remembered! Dancing and singing American pie at the beach and eating as many tuna sandwiches as they want. Stay strong tough cookies! Loveyou always xx

    Jack, we were looking forward to seeing you back at choir rehearsals once the pandemic had subsided, but instead there'll be an empty chair on the front row. You have been a stalwart from the early days, helping to build the choir up and serving as Secretary for many years, and we'll miss you a lot. Rest in Peace. Cameron Anderson Bury Acapeelers

    We will all miss Jack - especially once Bury Acapeelers choir gets up and going live again. He was an integral part for so long - apart from just being the loveliest of guys; a much treasured member of our bass section. Hope you found "crossing the bar" an easy journey, Jack.

    Rest in peace Uncle Jack from Dean, Claire, Abigail, Sky, Les and Barbara. Having known you all my life I can guarantee you are enjoying a glass of wine, or 6, having a laugh with friends and you are happily reunited with Mary. XXX

    So very sad to hear this. I will miss my singing friend and his humour in the Acapeelers when we resume. A lovely person to have known. A Gentleman and a gentle man. RIP Jack.

    I remember chatting to Jack a lot about Bury Football Club over the years. He was a lovely man and a much valued choir member. He will be greatly missed by all. R.I.P. Jack. Susan Woodward..

    Dear Jack. I remember when he first came to choir and he was always smiling so I called him Happy Jack from a line in a song. He was also one of the group who went to the pub after rehearsals putting the world to rights and often having a little singalong too. Simon often bumped into Jack at Bury football club where they were both members. Jack will be sorely missed. Kindest wishes to all his family. Ann and Simon Attwell.
