I was very privileged to know Jack quite well and was excited to reconnect with him and his lovely wife and family, several years before he passed. His life was always one of service to others. He is probably one of most kind people I have ever met. His sense of humor was legendary and his ability to argue even more so. He spent many hours at my home as a teenager arguing with my mother. Jack always dared people and one time as he argued with my mother, dared her to pour a glass of milk over his head. He was standing in the middle of our livingroom and thought it was a safe bet. Not so. Mom poured the milk over his head so fast, he didn't know what had hit him! He had the most priceless look on his face. It is a picture that I have never forgotten. He was independent but a loyal and faithful friend. It was a joy to meet his wife, Maggie, and spend some fun hours reminicing with her about some high school antics with Jack. I feel honored to have known this very loving man and even more so his family.
