In 1988, Jack and his family relocated to Butler, Okla. where he continued to work in farming and ranching. Some of Jack’s favorite years were spent working for the Beutler Brothers Rodeo Company of Elk City. His job with Beutler Brothers allowed him to spend time riding horses and enjoying the outdoors.

In the last few years, Jack had relocated to the Cheyenne community where worked for the State of Oklahoma Highway Department and was most recently employed with Roger Mills County. When he wasn’t working, Jack enjoyed fishing and spending time with Catherine Allen and her family.
