Jack served his country as a Fireman First class in the U.S. Navy during WWII. He was a career truck driver and over the years drove for many companies, eventually retiring from ABF Freight System. Jack loved playing music with friends but not more than he loved fishing. He also enjoyed spending time in his shop working on cars and whatever projects he could come up with. He will be missed for the wit and wisdom that he shared with his family.
