Obituary and Funeral Arrangements for John Charles "Jack" Wines (Willie's Brother)

This is Rhett posting for Captain Wines. He is unable to get to the computer during this time of mourning. I am handling a few things for him in his absence.

Willie’s only brother, John Charles “Jack” Wines, died this past weekend at the age of 41. Jack is the son of Retired Firefighter Willie Wines Sr. I have been with Willie over the past couple of days and he is maintaining. He appreciates all of the phone calls, emails, FB messages, and texts. He has kept up a little bit and it has helped through this emotional time.

If you have any questions, need information or addresses, or anything else please email me at or text me if you have my phone number (it is on my Facebook profile.) – Rhett Fleitz

    Oh Cap’t Willie, my heart is so sad for you. I am lifting you and all who loved your brother up in prayer. Wish I could send a hug cross country.
    May your memories of your good time with your brother comfort you. May your friends and fellow firefighters and even strangers like me help hold you up at this very sad time.
