One Photo – One Memory Millions of photos too many memories, however this one photo has made our family laugh & laugh over the years.
It was Jacks 7th Birthday and Chris & I took Jack, Ryan Draisey & Carl Watts to Oakwood Park for a day out to celebrate his birthday. Jack only just scraped past the 1m height restriction barrier on MEGAFOBIA. He‟d never ever been on such a big roller-coaster and the photo speaks for itself, and the expression on his face spells out PURE FRIGHT. We got off the ride, Jack was absolutely white as a sheet. So we walked around to the photo booth and all the people who were checking out their own photos stopped and were hysterical laughing at photo no 66……..which was our Jack…… The £6 fee for the photo was the best money ever spent. This photo is actually priceless….and so is the G-force face. Love & Miss you Jack you were not just my son but my Best Friend Forever in my Heart xxx– Clare Hughes
Me and my boy Jack in a family party in Kent 2011, doing the conga (right). Jack was never too embarrassed to dance with his Nan! Even a little jive with me last summer… A piece of me has gone, each day is a day closer to seeing you again. Nannie Cher xx
This is My Handsome Nephew Jack in 1999, when my little girl Robyn was born Jack was always there to lend a hand with his new baby cousin, feeding & changing, trying to be like a big brother, which later he would become. Love and will miss you with all my heart, Auntie Marie xxxxxx
From a baby to a man, Jack has always been my boy. Love and miss you forever x Auntie Kelly
THE BLUE BELLS ARE BLUE This poem might not be the very best, because in our English classes we wouldn‟t sit at rest. I‟ve got so many things I want to write down, mainly of times we got drunk on the town. One time that strikes me the very most, is when you lost part of your ear, and Joe Millen kept it close. You ruined my t-shirt that very day, you owed me some money but we knew you‟d never pay. (TIGHT BLOKE) You, Scott and I would sing the Rangers song, “THE BLUE BELLS ARE BLUE”. Now every time we hear it, we will be thinking of you. In 2012 we played 6-a-side, dressed in our Rangers strip. With major hang overs and twisted ankles, you gave the Ref so much lip. But then you fell in love (again!) found someone else to adore. We thought the team was finished, but we even started to score! All jokes aside, you're one funny guy. You would leave me laughing so much, I would cry. We‟ll miss you so much mate longer than a while, but when we think of you we will always smile.
Jack Clarke I could go on for days talking about you, you were like a brother I never had. I‟ve got so many memories I could talk about. We first met down the railway and instantly bonded, our first away trip was Sheffield Utd away and what a crack that was. Every Saturday or whenever the Swans were playing you would be the first person to ring usually around 5-6 am screaming down the phone, „wakey, wakey it‟s football day lets have it!!!‟ Eventually we got banned together well surprise, surprise. So we from then on you used to come down and pick me up from Llanelli usually getting lost on the way, go for brekkie then get the crates in and head off down yours and stream the swans match (the closest we could actually get to seeing them play haha). Then we‟d get our dancing shoes on and head off down the street of Wind normally ending up in dirty Jub‟s. Then head up back to yours about 4-5 Sunday morning strip off into our pants and get into bed with eachother and then stay up for a few hours giggling and reflect on what had happened in the night before! These nights happened a bit to often and we finally got found out by Chris walking in on us, stark naked giggling (imagine what was going through his head!!) We never used to text eachother just send voice notes back and forth over blackberry pin which used to make me laugh at every one you sent me. What a funny bloke, true gentleman, didn‟t have a bad word to say about anyone, always there for me and everyone else and that‟s why I love you soo much , I will miss you and will never stop thinking about you, you will never leave my side. Love you –Dan Martoni
Always remember when Jack told me he was going on a date down the Anarkali. Me, Ross and Joe Lewis followed him down about twenty minutes and sat next to him while he ate his food, he went bright red and called us all c***s! He did not even finish his food and even left a tip to get out the place which is not like him at all!!! Jack Murphy‟s bar had free jukebox written on the sign and Clarkey tried taking it off the wall hahaha!!! – Ryan Draisey
I can‟t put all my memories in to words, I have so many funny, embarrassing and almost unspeakable stories about you making a complete fool of things! I will remember and laugh at your sayings, „I‟M GONNA FALL IN LOVE WITH HER AND BUY HER THINGS‟.. „UMMEN‟.. „GET OFF MY GARDEN I KNOWS EW FATHER‟.. „YEEEESSSSSSS‟.. I see pictures of us, videos of you and just laugh to myself, (normally you un-tag yourself because your so self obsessed and conscious about your bright red face, burger nips on the beach, pale skin or half ear!) OH YEAH REMEMBER THIS PHOTO JACKY BOYY!?? (b*****d mouse ate my ear) I can‟t believe how much we laughed about it, and you untagged yourself on Facebook! Apart from all that, I have seen and been through a lot with you, through school and through life. I‟ll cherish the memories of you, good and bad and remember all the stories you told me with girls, nights out, and the general long chats we always had. (especially when you used to pop down my house with your Morrison‟s salad and protein shake „Yeah Scott I‟m training for Maga this is food for champions, pull all the birds then with my top off‟) YEAH RIGHT.. Saying that you did fall in love with someone. You said „SHES AWWWWSOME‟. Oh yeah and here are some messages you sent me on Facebook! Always cracking with the banter and such a tight guy when it came down to money! Saying that I never did pay you back! Love you forever friend! Your buddy - Scott Waddell
I've got well to much to say about you Clarkey... To many memories of my best mate to pick one out.... Although, I will share with those reading this on something I found out off your mother a week ago.... Remember that Aquascutum shirt I bought off you for 40 quid, and you told me you bought it the day before, took the tags off it and it was to big for you? Well, Clare told me you stole it off Chris and sold it to me!.... Well, Surprise, Surprise.... Tight Clarke at it again! Losing you has been like losing my brother, well, you were like my brother.... We were inseparable... Remember that time we went up mine after we went for a Sunday Dinner just the two of us, shared an ice cream in my flat, just the two of us, watched a film.... Just the two of us.... Then fell asleep and woke up cwtching each other.... Just the two of us.... Well, we both agreed not to tell anybody on that.... Ohhhh hang on, whoops. There wasn't much we'd do without each other... From taking photos of me naked on Kilvey Hill for twitter to having our traditional Sunday Bromance. I love you 'wussss'. Always in my heart, always by my side. Turkish. X – Jordan McGuire Always remember you smiling, we went on some great little missions. Also remember your the only person to ever buy me a pint at the bar then half hour later come back up to me and ask me for money to buy yourself a pint back haha made me laugh! Miss you man. Love Karlos Bellamios! – Karl Bellamy
This photo meant a lot to me, and Jack and would never fail to make us laugh whenever we talked about it! This photo goes back a long time back when me and Jack were kids, we've been friends for as long as I can remember and have always been in each others lives. This particular day our mothers dressed us up for the day and took us out, don't know what they were thinking because all we would do is argue as Jack would never stop winding me up (being the cheeky little sod he was! haha) and I'd go running to my mother to tell him to stop it, Clare would always be going mad at him for teasing me & my mother would be going mad at me telling me stop being such a wimp! Haha on this day we were in the back of the car blowing on each others arms finding it hilarious! So our mothers took a photo of us to capture one of the moments that we did get on! Haha there are so many memories I could share that meant a lot to us both throughout our childhood but this particular photo stands out for me because of how happy we both are. From the early days from us being kids to the last few memories of us I have raving in Oxygen together haha! They all mean so much to me which will remain with me for the rest of my life! We both know how much we meant to each other & the connection we had. I will always love him & not a day will go by that I won't miss him & wish we could share many more memories together. I will cherish the moments I was blessed enough to share with him & they will always be amazing memories of ours I will never forget. RIP Jack, I will never stop missing you. love you, Lauren xxxx. – Lauren Cattroll
Where do I start...? We had the most amazing few months and even though it weren't long it didn't matter because we did everything we said we would. The best memories for me would be our walks up Castle Graig or walks along the beach but nothing will ever beat our trip to the cinema to watch the Hangover 2. Firstly, it was like "Laur you paying for the tickets or the food?" but like always I'd get my own way and you would pay for both, privileged or what! But the best thing about this day was your impression of Mr.Chow singing in the lift, for the next month you would not shut up about it!! Even up until recent days when you would record yourself doing the "If I could save time in a bottle...." and send it to me. I still have them by the way, your voice is impeccable and all those other ones, you always were such a joker! As much as I hated to admit it then I always knew you were better than me but nothing will beat my impression of that Little Britain episode we would watch on YouTube over and over again until our stomachs hurt, "Mr Macbeth‟s a naughty man do do do duh duh". But above all this babe, you yourself are my favourite memory, you're my best friend, my soul mate, the one I'd always come to and the one I'd always rely on. God will only know how much I love you and I'm so glad that we told each other every day no matter what. I just want to say thank you for my text, thank you for thinking of me, thank you for everything and one day we will do all things we had planned and I'll forever keep you with me. You remember when you said "I vow to love you, and no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other" Well... I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this was a once in a lifetime love. So I‟ll see you soon then & I‟ll hang on to all the beautiful memories you‟ve left me with, your girl always, LRS xxxxxxx – Lauren Rose-Simmonds
„Always a pleasure, never a chore‟ – Jack Clarke
My Favourite memory with Jack was two summers ago when we had a faze of going rock jumping and went every day for about two weeks. He would pick me up in the morning and would get a Morrison‟s salad without fail, and then decide where to jump off next. As the days went on the rocks got higher, until we went to Langland and to a huge rock known as donkey rock. Jack being Jack started acting big, but didn‟t jump in from the top straight away. As he finally made it to the top still bragging about how he could jump off a bigger rock than me, he edged his way to the top and prepared himself to jump, he stood there for a good 5 minutes debating whether to do it, when he finally plucked up the courage to jump he looked down and seal was waiting at the bottom. It was safe to say, he sh** his pants. We laughed about it ever since. Always miss you Jackie legs. – Joe Brown
Jack, What a brilliant lad. You were always full of life and a great friend. I have shared many memories with you and the boys but my best memory we had together was when you moved into mine for 2 weeks and may I add, what an eventful fortnight that was! Long live the memories... I know we will have many, many more. When my time is up and we reunite once again, I'm positive we will get into mischief as always. See you soon xxx - Nicky Cursio Jack was always there for me he helped me through a lot! He always picked me up when I was down! I‟ll always have the memories we shared. – Carl Watts
There are so many memories with Jack I could write about but one of the main ones was the night he got his ear bit off. Few of us boys started early in the Smiths in Llansamlet, it was only meant to be a quiet one. We ended up getting a taxi to town and there was only one place to go on a Friday night and that was Play £10 free bar. It must of been a good four years ago so I'm sure we were under age but some of us had fake ID‟s so we got in fine but Jack didn't so he ended up doing the old jumping over the gate at the back and coming in through the smoking area door technique. We were all back together making the most of the free bar and generally being menaces on the dance floor. That night like always Jack had me rolling in tears with his one liners, I can just remember having a right laugh and a genuine good night with all the boys. Until I turned around and Jack was on the floor with this boy on top of him. I can just remember grabbing Jack and dragging him out the way of the crowd and before I could say anything he asked me if I was alright, that's the type of guy he was always mates first and him second. I saw blood running down his neck so I thought he'd been stabbed but he turned and I saw his ear. What a horrific sight! I said “Jack your ears been bit off” he said “No mun I'm fine" I started to push him towards the doors to get help and he started to realise how serious it was and he turned to me and said "shall we make the most of the free bar first" typical Jack. I managed to get him to an ambulance and one of the paramedics asked me if I had the other part of the ear, so you know after a few you turn into a hero so I thought I‟d run back in and get it. I was scanning the floor for this half of ear and there it was covered in black fluff laid this piece of ear about the size of a 50 pence. I picked it up and was so chuffed I found it I was showing it off to everyone on the way out. I handed it to the paramedic and followed Jack up to Morriston Hospital in a cab. I‟ll be honest I can't really remember much after that. Then there was the court case a couple of months later in Crown Court, which was an experience! There are so many more memories I could write for days about but I've only got this one slot so ill leave it there. Jack was one hell of a nice guy I never heard a bad word about him and he constantly had me in stitches. My thoughts are with all the family and he will be painfully missed. – Joe Millen
Jack Clarke...... Where to begin? I have some of the best memories I have ever had with my good old friend Clarkey. After going through primary and comprehensive school with you, we became best buds shortly after as we both call the time the "the good old days." I will always remember some truly funny days we had together. Out in the Bravo, with Cream Future Trance and Tiesto in search of sunrise CD's on in the background while we drove around for hours trying to impersonate the boys, "Sapppin Fellass" everytime we spoke on the phone, cracked us up every time haha! That time in the Spar, hearing the drop of the music, looked at each other and just broke in to our scorpion dance, what people must of thought I don't know. Which reminds of Escape, standing at the back you trying to copy my awesome moves, where you got the name "scorpion" from, which became our regular dance every Saturday, thinking we were the cheese! Mr.18 Months your face when we were in play and Joe comes walking out with half your ear in his hand, waiting up the hospital for hours, scared waiting for your mum to turn up haha. We've got so many excellent memories together the list could keep going for pages and pages. We went through the motions together in the "good old days," the highs and the lows, the morning after the night before. My night would never be the same without my man Clarkey. You are a true gentleman, a cheeky lad, a funny mate and a loving friend and without all those traits you wouldn't be the same pal Jack. The times we had together are and will be some of the best memories I will ever have and will stick with me forever. I will continue to pass on the stories and time we had together to friends and people for as long as I will live. You have so many friends and people would always tell me how much time they have for you which came at no surprise. I will truly miss you Jack, a mate that I will never forget, a friend in which I wish I did not have to write about today.
I Love You Jack Rest In Peace Buddy Love Joey Scurlock xxx
Always had time to stop for a chat, don't think I seen you without a smile. What a top bloke. Sleep well jack Clarke. Tank – Chris Courtney
Me and Jack on my 19th birthday. 29/08/2010 – Sean Buse
Buse, Clarkey, Me and Stevo Walkabout 2010
Too many memories mate. Magaluf probably tops it. Didn't stop laughing the whole week. We'll do you proud in Zante. Love and miss you, Kaz x
I will always remember this night.. Me and Jack was in Chico Land in town after a crazy night in wind street, when all of a sudden Jack started shouting 'MAM, MAM, MAM, MAM‟.. Everyone was looking around staring at us in disgust.. Me and him were just there in tears laughing, he carried on then we eventually got kicked out by the bouncers because we couldn't order our food we was laughing soo much. We always used to have such a laugh wherever we went in all fairness, you were the life and soul of the party. Nobody had a bad word to say about you, and you were there for me when I needed someone the most. A true friend to all. You will be sadly missed Jack, love you. - Robert Miller Drama year 7 was probably some of the best laughs I've ever had, just running around for an hour going mad and doing what ever we wanted. One of the rare lessons I actually looked forward to. We even ended up being put in the school play. Brought the house down in the auditions with our dance. Thank God we s**t the bed before we went through with it. No matter the time and place, we'd always have a laugh mate, some times when we shouldn't have, no scratch that almost every time. I'm gonna miss you Jack. Along with everyone else who met you.– Gareth Bevan Before, me and Jack went to Asda and bought 14 Mayfair and thought it was the funniest thing ever and we kept on doing that Virgil Mastercard thing 'yes, yes, yes how d you doooooooooooo‟ –Nicky Harris
Back during the days when we would be in Escape every Saturday without fail!
Got way too memories of Jack to be able to choose a favourite. But I can say that he truly was a pleasure to be around. He had a personality that would lift everyone around him and he would have me in stitches wherever we went. Probably the last time I saw jack was before Christmas when he captained Leavemyarsealona up play football and had to retire due to dodgy ankles, he would literally put 100% into anything regardless of its importance. You always knew where you stood with Jack and he would go out of his way to make you feel welcome. It hasn't quite sunk in but I know I'll always miss Jack, but I can also say that I will never have a bad memory to think about. R.I.P Buddy xxx – Lewis Stote
You where a true gent, you made me laugh and made me smile now all the good memories are flowing through my mind. They will stay with me forever. Miss & Love you mate. Good Night and God bless. X – Casey Owen
I have the most amazing memories with you Jack Clarke from when we were toddlers starting St Josephs with your cute specs and your blonde bowl cut hair style, as you would describe yourself - Milky Bar Kid haha! I can remember your 19th birthday, my mother was away and you turned up with kebab and didn‟t realise I was throwing you a party bought you a cake, candles the lot and when it hit 12 o‟clock turned off all the light and made everyone sing happy birthday! your face was a picture!! Also my fave one was last New Years you spent it with me and Dan and at the time you were proper into that song Bingo Players – Rattle, and we were dancing in my tiny little kitchen like nutters to that song for hours because you kept playing it and playing it. It will always remind me of you! I feel so lucky and blessed that I had a close mate as nice and genuine as you! Rest in peace Jack I will love and miss you always Forever in my heart xxxxxxx – Marissa Warburton
It's got to be my 18th birthday party he was so pissed his tried giving Dannie‟s mother a lap dance! Ahh and the time we were up Dan‟s and he feel asleep and woke up and he thought he had pink eye! He was going nuts! He didn't no what had happened his eyes wouldn't stop watering and they were bright red! He went nuts for about half hour, then fell back to sleep woke up and forgot it even happened. – Tanika Turner A good memory with Jack was curling weights with our tops off in Leggy‟s mothers mirror! Great memory! – Craig Jenkins & Dale Legg I was reading my Facebook emails with me and Jack and it all started with a poke, Jack said it was his way of breaking the ice with a girl and I asked what happens if a girl ignores your poke and his reply was 'at least I tried eh?' Ever the grafter he was!! Jack, All I want to do is cry, But when I think of you I can't help but smile. You were an amazing boy, a dear friend, And for me your memory will never end. I hope your at peace wherever you are, I know you'll always be the brightest star. You've well and truly left your mark, The one, the only, everyone's Jack Clarke. Until we meet again - sleep tight my angel, I love you babe, rest in peace – Samantha Day
You were such a lovely person, all my memories of you are amazing. You always made me smile. – Amy Steins We went to drama together and he was the lead singer in High School Musical! You'd never think it now with his half ear and Stone Island! He had false tan on, bright orange. Dancing around in the Grand Theatre with a basket ball! We also used to just walk around the streets and mess around, we went up his nans so he could say hello and give her a kiss then sat up Pantecelin on top of Townhill and just looked over Swansea on a sunny day, it was a lovely day, no worries, which ill never forget. Gonna Live Forever. Love You Jack Clarke. - Lucy Rhian Evans This picture is from the first night we ever met. We were in Escape watching Eddie Halliwell and I remember Jack came up to me and started dancing with me we started chatting and spent the whole night together. When it finished he asked how old I was I told him I was 18 and he said „ yeah me too.‟ We took each others number and started texting. a few weeks later we met up and he decided to tell me he was only 16 but at that point we got on so well it didn‟t even bother me the sneak! He was such an amazing person so caring and he was one of these people. We wouldn‟t speak for a while but when we did it would be as if we never stopped speaking, he would always inbox me or text me to see how I was and what I was up to, the last thing he ever said to me was „the photos from your holiday are good enough for me Charl!‟ – Charlotte Davies
I‟ll always remember the time when we had an end of term party in class and Jack was dancing round the floor to Special D - Come with me!!! Cracks me up every time I think of him doing it!! – Hollie Wright Jack you really were one of a kind, and I feel truly blessed to call you a friend. We will all never forget you, all the best. - Dan Williams
This picture is from the good old Essence days! We had some quality laughs going to miss you buddy. Swansea isn‟t going to be the same without you! – Erni Zidelevicius
The days he used to be up mine and having a mess about on the dart board and who ever hit the lowest score would have to take 10 seconds smelling the food bin haha.. There are loads more I had with the lad but would be writing too many! Jack was a great lad and loved by many my thoughts go out to all his closest mates and his family! Gone but never forgotten rest in peace my mate! Memories last forever. – Josh Murphy
Too many good times together to write them all down. The loveliest and most thoughtful boy I've ever had the pleasure of being friends with. You will be in my thoughts forever you little charmer, love you x – Lois Penhaligan
This was taken in Jubbly‟s last September where he wasn't amused at me & his mother turning up there & some bloke was trying to pull Clare & Jack being Jack had the bloke by the throat !! – Louise Creamer
I‟ll always remember the time when he swallowed a spider!! Always had good times with him. He is a good friend I‟ll never forget him. – Michael Power
I'm so pleased to be dubbed the most disgusting girl you've ever met! Without fail everything I say managed to repulse you. I do admit I get graphic with bodily functions BUT I will say I believe it's a little bit of your own fault! You see it‟s the little things that stay with us and you completely shot yourself in the foot when you gave me the best advice anyone ever has 'your Aimee Starkey aren't you? Yeah well you can do what you want!' Although I'm sure u didn't mean get a massive obsession with Newcastle Brown. I'm starting to see your point ..little bit vile! Your so funny without meaning to be Officer Doofy, especially with girls. I always find it hysterical thinking on Lew‟s birthday and your casually fancying on Rhi and you were failing. So I hope the advice that you had extremely gay wrists, which I didn't mind blurring out in front of everyone, stood you in good stead! They're just so camp! It's redeemable though because you do your zip up to its full potential. You just never fail to literally be Jack the lad. With gay wrists and questionable poses. – Aimee Starkey
Jack, you were a lovely boy and such a lad enjoying the football too much and doing masturbation signs! You always made me laugh in the back of your car with the stupid stuff you would come out with like “Playing Drake pulls birds, they laaav it” and the word “C**TY” randomly slipping in. I will never forget that time after town we went back to Scott‟s and then you decided you wanted to sleep with us!! “Jack, do you want to go in the spare room?” *hinthint* “naah I‟m alright by here” you said as you got comfy pulling up the covers! Suppose I should say thankyou for coming to the Travs that one night with Scott, you both enjoyed my singing on the karaoke loads! You were a kind hearted boy and I will always remember you said “You look beautiful Luc” when the most expected people did to make me feel better, cutie! Going to miss you calling me Minaj all because I thought I was her after a few drinks on my birthday. Love you lots xxxxx – Lucy Phillips
I remember the time that me, Jack and Rachel Williams got chased down the field by a horse for winding it up! We ran so fast we almost collapsed. Another time is when we went out to pizza hut one night and Jack decided to strip off and get his boxers out. We were only in year 9 shock of my life!. When we were together in year 7.. for like 2 months, we went to see Finding Nemo, through the whole film he was throwing popcorn at all the people and talking all the way through it, we almost got thrown out. We also used to go out and play almost every night through the summer, year 7-9. – Sarah DiCaprio-Walters Jack has been my next door neighbour since 2007 and we always got along like a house on fire, such a lovely boy. I seen him grow from a teen into a adorable young man, one memory that sticks is when he went for a fag and his door slammed behind him, he knocked my door with no shoes on freezing, and waited for his nan to come with a key, what a legend of a boy, he will be greatly missed, Trewyddfa king! – Sara Jayne Thomas Funniest moment has to be working in the Royal Mail with him, we had named the other people working there, 1 was Sloth, Ric Flair, Tarzan and Bugs Bunny. I remember me and Jack getting told to get on with it and stop messing around when he accidently said “yeah sorry about that sloth.” I‟ve never cried with laughter so much, can say the other guy didn‟t find it as funny as we did! Always a laugh when Clarkey was involved, going to be missed by so many, RIP mate. – James Secker
On valentines a few years ago me and Jack spent it together having a chicken curry and watching Cayote Ugly, he said to me I‟m glad I‟m doing something for Valentine‟s. I didn‟t have anything better to do!!' Cheek! We had loads of good nights out together and I remember we all had a bright idea to walk home, and all Jack did was moan in his OAP voice all the way home haha! – Amy O’Connell You were a lovely boy, who will be missed by many. From looking back, I remember you always joking around and overall being a nice genuine guy! Told Nicky at the time you were my fave from the boys! Thinking about it, the last proper memory was when we all went out for Lucy's birthday last year and got kicked out of Varsity because she had no ID! Although turned out to be a good night, and even owed some drinks in return! You'll be severely missed Jack, R.I.P. Love from Rhiannon xxx - Rhiannon Waugh It‟s like loosing part of my family, you were always like a son to me! Going to miss all the banter we used to have with your wee daft Scottish accent. - Bryan Waddell
Jack was a top lad! – Spotter
I remember the first time I heard Boyce Avenue‟s cover of The Goo Goo Dolls - Iris. I was out with Jack and the boys and he had put it on in the car singing his heart out, sticking his head out the window taking pictures of him self on his phone and since then it has been one of my favourite songs, and when ever I listen to it, I think back to that day and laugh and smile to myself. I'm so happy to of been a friend of Jack‟s and shared some amazing memories with him. Love you always jack – Danniella Orr JACK MA CRACK! I‟ll always think about all the laughs and memories I‟ve had with you and there‟s countless to talk about, and I‟m smiling to myself thinking of the ones we‟ve had! The one that springs to mind is from our holiday to Magaluf when we pulled those Dutch birds in BCM never met a grafter like you! Your that type of boy that your guaranteed to have a laugh with whenever your around, and you don‟t find many people like that, in fact we‟ll never find anyone like you! Forever with a smile on your face and making others smile. A genuine kind hearted lad and I never heard anyone talk a bad word about you. You were a great friend to me and I look up to you! Will be truly missed but NEVER forgotten! Love STU MCGREW x – Stuart Waddell
I thought the world of jack, I never got to thank him for his kind words and support over the last few months, through my battle with breast cancer. His support towards my partner Dolly while I was recovering from my op. I will never forget that. Jack always took time to come and say hello and always made us smile. R.I.P Jack your always be in our heart & Thank you Jack. - Marie Pearson
Forever in our hearts. Always with us. Love you forever mate! Who are we!? JACK CLARKE ARMY! – Corey Merrells I don‟t think I‟ll ever understand why you left but I do know I will miss you for a long time. Rest in peace Jack and stick a good word in up there for me mate! Until we meet again, Ciao for now Mr Clarke. – Andrew Bevan I remember going to his nans for his birthday (13/14th maybe) and going behind the shed with him for a snog and falling over some old bikes flat on my face! He has been such a grafter years later!! I will definitely miss him what a lovely caring boy! Also I'll never forget the night he un-squared (can't believe that's actually what everyone used to call it!!) me in Time and Envy and my braided hair (been on holiday) kept getting in the way!!! - Jessica Squires Jack was such a lovely, caring boy. Me and him thought it would be a good idea to do an all nighter once and ended up freezing our arses off under a tree in the park! It was hilarious! Thank God for Jack finally asking if we could go back to his house. Legend of a boy. – Lili-Rose Wallis When I went to Jack‟s 4th birthday party I went along chickenpox and all because I SO wanted to be there (luckily nobody caught it) but he was there looking so cute in his smart birthday clothes (like the milky bar kid as my Mum still calls him) with his bright blonde hair and big circle glasses and that's how I still remember him. I always remember how much fun we all had, little and careless. He was such a nice guy and I just know he's having a ball up there! – Kirsty O’Brien Jack had a birthday party (his 6th or 7th)and he kept refusing this boys present, he just wouldn‟t take it was so cute with his blonde wedge haircut and round glasses. It was so funny he just wouldn‟t take the present kept saying , „No don‟t like it‟ I think it was the wrapping paper he didn‟t like! - Kimberley Watts
