I worked with Jackie Ball at Woolworth's. He was lots of fun. He always helped me out selling the birds and fish because they made me squeamish.  What a good guy!  Both Jack and Richard Guerin worked there in '61 and '62.  Both are gone now.

Jack was always a funny guy at AHS. I'm sure he will be missed by all who knew him.

With my heartfelt sympathy to his family. Wishing you God's speed Jack and peace be with you and peace to the ones you left behind. The class of1963 will miss you as will I.

I'm pleased to say that all of these kids were my best friends in elementary school. Jack Ball is in the upper right corner of the photo. Those were memorable years and my list of old friends has gotten a bit shorter with the passing of Jack. Irv Stowers (the kid on the left with suspenders)
