Jack was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, a Master Mason, avid golfer, artist, theater buff, Havoc Hockey fan, adventurer, and jokester, who lived life to the fullest. He never missed an opportunity to share a smile, joke, or words of wisdom. Jack was the kind of guy who would show up when you least expected it and needed it most. He never met a stranger and treated everyone like a friend. There is a hole in the family that can never be filled; he will be dearly missed by all who had the honor of knowing him.
