Jack was the salt of the earth - a very devoted husband to his beautiful wife of 62 years, and his loving family. He was a US Army Veteran, having served in the Philippines in the Pacific Theatre during WWII (1945-46). He enjoyed vegetable gardening, deer hunting, “working the carnival” and traveling in his motor home.
We’d like to thank his wonderful nurses at the McCormick Transitional Care Center who took such great care of him while he was there.
