    I did not know Mr. Story personally, but I enjoyed reading his anecdotes about the region from time to time. Preservation of the recollections of our more experienced community members is an important part of publications like this – perhaps a special section could be created for such a purpose. As things change, it is good to remember where they started.

    My condolences go out to Mr. Story’s family.

    I want to tell his family how much my Fallbrook families respected Mr. Jack, and how much we kids loved him. He was such a fun and kind man.
    Peace be unto you. <3

    Jack will be greatly missed. We were so appreciative of the time he took to give us stories. Historical stories are so important, not only for the reference and for people living here now, but for the future. RIP Jack – you were a blessing and your stories will continue to be a blessing. – Julie Reeder

    A treasury of Fallbrook history. He knew it because he lived it. A lucky man.

    At the Historical Society,, in the community., as a member of the Methodist church, through his column in the Village News and as Man about Towm, Jack brought kindness, decency, wit and wisdom to us. He gave us a sense of time and place, rhyme and reason. A “dedicated to good” community member. A life to be celebrated and emulated.

He Loved Music, kept Music alive and shared it all with everyone. “I can hear the sax-a-playin’ jack, Heavens a MORE wonderful place now. remember we said, we’re in this together’. see you at home jack…….
