To the family of Jack Munninger,
My deepest condolences during this difficult time. I worked directly with Jack the past few years, and have also really got to know Jack outside of work as well, so I also considered him my good friend. I have known very few individuals that had the work ethic and the integrity that Jack held in such high esteem. He had a wonderful attitude and always a positive outlook on life, and it rubbed off on me, and so many more of the customers and people we worked with. it was a blessing every day I was able to work with, and get to know Jack. He will be missed, and never forgotten.
I had the honor of working with your son and brother. He is one of the most honest and honorable men that I have ever met. We connected on a lot levels because of our international travel to the same locations, and to our commitment to doing what’s right over what some may choose to do. You raised an awesome man. I congratulate you on that, and many will celebrate his life as a shining example of truth and what is right in the world.
My heartfelt condolence to the family. Losing those we love, is the hardest thing we have to experience. May you find comfort in knowing God understands your pain and he will help you to heal, psalm 34:18. May you find comfort in Jesus promise “do not be amazed, those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…” john 5:28, 29

Our deepest condolences to your family. I met Jack through my son Brian and was always grateful they formed a deep friendship. Heartbroken and sorry for your loss seem so little right now; however, our hearts do break for you at this time and we know that no words can ease your pain.
Know that Jack was loved & respected by so many people and will be deeply missed.

My heartfelt condolence to the Munninger family. Jack was more then my best friend for many years he was loyal, honest and saved my life he never gave up on me even when I gave up on myself. He helped me through the hardest times of my life and I pray he was still here with us now. The last time i talked to him he told me he was proud of me for what i’ve become and I owe that to him. My family and I will forever miss you Jack I love you like my brother.
Jack will be missed deeply, and although I’m sure you guys know already, he was an amazing person. Honestly one of the best employees that I’ve ever worked with, and will be missed greatly by our company. He always talked of his family, his Dad, and his dreams of working with his brother and their own company one day. I’m glad to have met him, worked with him , and he will leave a lasting impression on us all.
My dear Jack! You now have the peace your soul longed wanted. Celebrate Jack! Our Creator put us together way back, and now with all who held you, laughed with you, most of all my JK, my Jack, we cherrish you! Our family relishes your greatest attibutes. NO ONE CAN TAKE AWAY OUR TIME TOGETHER! God gave us that treasured time forever!! LOVE YOU FOREVER JK!
I am shocked and saddened. I had the privilege of working with Jack and he was amazing. He will be truly missed.
Jack was a true gentleman and even though I only knew him for a short time, it was a great pleasure to work with him and got to know him. My sincere condolences to his family. He will be sorely missed. Rest in peace my friend.

You were the ultimate competitor. Anyone who has played against or with you can attest to this. Basketball, softball, soccer you name it you gave it your all. You pursued life in that same fashion and brought out the best in those around you. That distinct laugh of yours will be missed as well as your positive presence.
~TO GOD WE BELONG AND TO GOD WE SHALL RETURN ~

Dear Munninger family,
There are no words to express our sorrow for such a deep loss at this time. Our faith that tells us John Karl is now immersed in the perfections of Our Heavenly Father.Though feeling lost to us, his union and care for family and friends continues with his new Wisdom and Eternal Love. May this truth grace you with consolation and a Heavenly peace as he lives on in our hearts.
Our prayers and sympathies are with you.
A diamond has been lost. We only knew Jack professionally, but somehow my wife and I loved him. Honest, hardworking, trustworthy, and with a can-do attitude that was beyond the pale. A great American for sure. Rest in peace my brother.

My condolences to the family for your loss. I recall that Karl, as he preferred to be called when he was in my Latin class, was a unique young man who had dreams he wanted to pursue and it is my wish that he achieved some of them during his brief tenure with us. He was a very special student who left with me a lasting impression. And as Jane Austen wrote in Pride and Prejudice, “Think only of the past as its remembrances give you pleasure.” There were many wonderful ones, especially his humor and his laughter, that he has left with me; I know there were so many more for each and all of you. And, Mike, having been honored as well to also have had you in my class, a very special expression of sympathy to you with sincere hopes that you’re doing okay.
I am so deeply saddened to have heard the news about Jack. My husband and I got to know him from our pool building process with Unique pools and then continued to work with him and the entire family for pool maintenance. He was always so professional, upbeat and positive and his outlook on life was so uplifting. Truly a one of a kind spirit. My heartfelt condolences to the entire family and his awesome dog too. Keeping shinning brightly on your next adventure Jack.

Prayers to you all for peace and strength during this challenging time. I pray this to Our Lord Jesus Christ.
My dear cousin. I love you and cherish the small fraction of time we had together as troublemakers. I spoke to your mother Kathryn today and her heart is broken. She loves you so much- all of you. You are now in heaven and you are in the arms of the Lord and all the heartache of the world is no longer.
Please Lord let him know how loved John Karls is by his Stewart family. Never a day goes by without thinking of all my cousins. Lord wrap your arms around my other cousins and let them know that I am praying for them even though we have obstacles between us. We will all be together one day in your presence.
I miss you brother. I know that you are receiving grace and in hopes to see our Lord face to face. But I still miss you. For my own selfish reasons I want you here. Your physical presence is needed. I was reading these and started to cry when someone mentioned you being the ultimate competitor. Too funny because it was so true. I know that you are here next to me as I write this and your hand is on my shoulder I just can not feel it. You always protected me, took my punishments for me, and loved me. It has been a year since you were in the hospital but it was yesterday in my mind that your soul left your body.
You fought the good fight and may His perpetual light shine down upon you. I love you and will continue to offer sacrifices for your soul.
