    Jack Guinn was a cherished member of the Elkins Senior Center. Since, I started at the Center a couple of years ago, he always made me feel at home. We enjoyed having his company.

    Jack was a wonderful friend. I remember the days working with each other at Swepco.
    We had good times fishing together. I will miss his calls about the St. Louis Cardinals.
    So sorry for your loss.
