It is with a saddened heart that I report the passing of a dear friend to magicians the world over - Jack Barrows. I have known Jack for over 35 years and most recently for the past four years was our sales manager here at FAB Magic in Colon, Michigan. Jack leaves a legacy that lives on in the hundreds of lives he touched both inside the magic community and beyond. He was a very caring person who was always there to lend support. He took many a young magician under his wing - including myself - I had a hare brained idea in 1973 of putting together a magic convention in Indiana. I was fifteen at the time and no one gave it a chance...besides my parents encouragement, Jack was there - to support and help in more ways that I could ever imagined. He wanted nothing - just the opportunity to help give a kid his "dream" - he did that for so many - there are many stories to tell about this wonderful human being. Tentative plans are to hold a memorial service during magic week August 1-4th - a tribute to a man who always thought of others before himself....I will miss him ------Rest in peace my friend......Rick Fisher

Rick,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your good buddy, Jack Barrows.

He will be missed. It was great to see him work so hard and at the same time having so much fun in your shop in Colon. His warm smile and friendship will be missed.

I only met Jack once several years ago when FAB was just getting started and found him to be one of the nicest and most sincere guys I have ever known. The magic world has lost another one it's "good guys".

I've been very sad to hear from Michael P. that Jack had passed away. I had only met with him in person twice and spoke through emails and letters occasionally. He did indeed offer much support for most that he met and I was no different.

Even when I first met him, I felt that he had something to tell me, and his words echo through my head still today.

I first met Jack many years ago when he lived in Indiana. I remember that he published a magazine for magicians that you could get for free. Later he charged very little for a subscription. I believe it was called THE MAGICIAN.
Jack was a great guy. He worked for Abbotts and I remember one Christmas he was going to be all alone, so I invited him to spend Christmas with my family and I.
I had lost contact with Jack, so was saddened to hear of his death.
