John "Jack" Shay, 82, of West River Road, Nichols went to his heavenly home and was reunited with his wife Madaline on Friday, June 13, 2014.

Jack was born on Nov. 13, 1931 in Towanda, Pa., a son of the late Paul and Jeanne (Hogan) Shay. He was a graduate of Towanda High School and proudly served his country with the US Navy. Jack was a retired employee of IBM Owego. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and spending time outdoors — although his greatest pleasure was being with his family.
