I have many good memories of Jack Klug & Mike working in the Deli at the grocery store in Sardis Ohio. He was a wonderful part of the community of Sardis for MANY YEARS and will be missed by many. RIP Old Friend

I worked for Jack many years ago at the grocery store in Sardis, OH, and he taught me so much about managing people which I have used in my career for many years. He was so well liked by all the customers who came in the store every day, and everyone really liked him. He always did everything he possibly could to make the customers happy. And that was his nature….to bring a smile to everyone’s face by helping them in any way he could. The world needs more Jack Klugs. He will certainly be missed by me and by so many others whose lives he touched and was a part of. God bless you Jack.

You don’t know me but the many people to whom your Dad administered Holy Communion loved when he visited, including my Mother Rose Kovalo. I was fortunate to meet him several times. He was a gracious and kind man. You have my condolences.
