Jack was born in Mansfield, LA, on June 30, 1930, to Alfred N. and Clarice Rascoe Cranford. He entered into rest at his home in Homer on Monday, December 26, 2022.

He loved his family and the outdoors of hunting, barge rides, flying his airplane, traveling and riding motor cycles with his sweet wife and especially their place on Lake Claiborne! He was a volunteer fireman for the Claiborne Fire Department, Arizona Road for many years.  He was always ready to help!
