I am truly saddened by Jack´s passing. I have so many fond
memories of him from grade school to high school, college, class reunions, and the years we worked together as teachers. All of
those memories and fun times came flooding back and brought
a smile to my face, but a sadness to my heart. My deepest
sympathies for your loss.

Dear Roxanne, Jay, Kevin, Doris, Sharon, and family,

I was so sad to learn of Jack's passing. Jack was my stand-in older brother when my brother was at college. We lived across the street from each other in Shickshinny from the time I was born, and spent many days and nights together, playing pitch and catch, touch football and playing basketball on the playground, going to movies either at the Garden Drive-in or in Wilkes-Barre, golfing in Sweet Valley or Muhlenberg or Briar Heights, watching Johnny Carson, listening to his Buddy Rich records, going up the street to church, and so, so much more. And, when I went to Bloomsburg, Jack told me that I must join the band or he'd kick my you-know-what. Jack didn't steer me wrong. These past few summers, except this COVID summer, we'd meet somewhere and golf once or twice and catch up with family news and talk over 'old times' from home. I will miss not being with Jack. R.I.P. my brother.

Dear Roxanne and family,

I am sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. He lived across the street from me in Shickshinny and we were childhood friends who grew up together in a wonderful small town. Our moms made Easter eggs together for many years at the Shickshinny Methodist Church.
