"Jacks"will be sadly missed by everyone on this site

It saddens me to inform everyone that "Jacks Bedford" suffered a heart attack and died earlier today on a road trip to Cairns. He was my very best friend and I will miss him dearly. He has left behind a loving wife, I will post more information later, condolences can be sent to susannesteinmann@big...

What the heck? Is that the "Jacks" from 4165? he lived pretty close to me if so and I thought that I really should go and visit some time. If it is that Jacks then this saddens me a great deal as I've spoken to him in email a few times in the past and he was always a genuine, helpful and friendly individual. Another opportunity lost to meet someone of value to the community.

oh man, when we went on the brissy cruise almost a year ago, he was one of the most knowledgeable men i have ever met, he will be very sadly missed and was a great contributor to this site, no matter the question, he could help out in some way.

After visiting for 2 or 3 years, it was not until this very morning that I wondered how I might feel when a 'cyber aquaintance' passed on....

Blessings and peaceful wishes to the friends and family.

Jacks was a fine man. Considerate, helpful, dedicated, knowledgable.
He worked hard to share any info he found and in the least his LPG
page and tireless research will be of benefit to others for a long
time to come.

I'm proud to have been able to help him get his Holdenpaedia
pages started to the point where he could initiate them himself.

He did many selfless and kind actions for me in the short time I knew
him. I'll always be appreciative of his help and miss his
contributions.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

Jack spoke highly of you T- he would constantly ring me or drop into my shop and ask my opinion on what you had to say! ( dont panic- it was all good!)I realise you probably never had the chance to meet him but I just thought I would share that one with you T.

Many thanks for sharing that with me.

Of all Jacks' great attributes it was the rapid development and
perfection of his literary skill that truly astonished me. It's
probably the only appreciation I didn't directly share with him while
he was alive, though I often congratulated him on his informative posts and invaluable imaged Holdenpaedia and shed work. That's the
reason why I feel compelled to say so now.

I've written screenplays and script edited films and documentaries
for years so I appreciate the optimum use of words and correct grammer.

I genuinely admire how far he came from his earliest Holdenpaedia
submissions that he emailed me to edit and put up for him, to his
last work which had perfection and style, grammar, spelling and
punctuation such that there was nothing further for me to do there.

When I let him know he was cool to create his own pages it was very
much an understatement.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

Whilst you and I may have differing opinions on some topics- We both share a passion for writing and engineering. I have become an Automotive freelance Journo proper about 3 years ago. I am constantly trying to instill grammatical correctness into others- its the way I was ear-bashed by mum in my formative years...
I too have written some movie treatments- but not taken it much further other than to share it with a few in the industry - who are only too happy to pinch it and call it their own work.

Back to Jack...

Jack was on a learning curve - in both communication and furthering his engineering knowledge- which is proof in itself in what my Mum always said- you should not stop learning until you curl up your toes.

In all honesty Jack took up a fair chunk of my time at the most inconvenient of times- but I never dismissed him as a time waster- and always engaged in lengthy conversation with him. Its always interesting to talk to folk and get their perspective. You just never know - a seemingly ordinary person can offer something interesting if you take the time to listen, and probe for further info. People are like computers- you just have to know which button to push...

Cheers streetneat-Andrew.

Very sad news, He was a true gentleman with all the time in world to help, Explain and share his knowledge to anybody that asked, But mostly, like Brocky and Erwin, At least he was doing what he loved to do,

Hell, yet another legend gone.....

I agree with all the sentiments above and will miss Jacks cheerful, helpful and, sometimes, funny posts.

We were lucky to have "known" him.

Rest In Peace mate. You deserve it.

I'll E-mail my condolences to the address given tomorrow when I have had time to digest the news.

This is a very sad day for the oldholden and Bedford communities...

Sorry to hear this, I dont think I ever spoke directly to Jacks but have read many of his very imformative posts before and popped into his interesting shed quite a few times.
A valued OldHolden member has left, but wont be forgotten.

This is sad news. I knew Jack personally rather well
Jack discovered OH via my shop and sheds page. I seem to remember it was about a year or so ago. Jack came up to my shop to purchase some Car lack polish for his Red Mercedes. He stumbled across my website and the obvious link to this site. He lived 'down the hill' from us.

Jack purchased a few bits and pieces from us for his Bedford- Red motor powered on LPG. His engineering background was rather extensive and Jack had a very inquisitive nature- He constantly rang or dropped in to bounce ideas from me.

None of us are here forever - Knowing this Jack did his utmost to share his wealth of knowledge and experiences with us all - for that we will remember him by.

Thanks Jack
Streetneat-Andrew.
