Uncle Jack in his uniform . He flew troop transports planes during World War II. He was the youngest child in the family and his Mother was referred to as "Jack's Ma". I often wandered how the other children felt about that title. Maybe it was not out of the ordinary and I have just put a mud ball in the family waters. When I started this post I realized how much I did not know about this Uncle on Prince's side of the family.
He grew up in west Nashville and worked hard. Back then young boys were full of ambition. He eventually became President of the Baird Ward Printing Company and became an avid golfer. There was even a golf tournament that bore his name. The first time I meet him I thought him to be a gruff old bird but later I found out that he only appeared that way. The Kitty Justice is he could be described as a fine lemon pie with a hard crust.
