John "Jack" Conway

AGE: 81 •

John "Jack" Conway, 81, passed away peacefully in his sleep on December 1, 2016. Jack was born in Irvington NJ and grew up in Leonardo. He was an entrepreneur from a young age with a love of cars. He began his career selling them at Continental Cars and then Shrewsbury Motors before moving over to the real estate industry with Sterling Thompson and retiring from Gloria Nilson. Jack was a great father, uncle, pop-pop and friend. He was extremely social and known as the life of the party. Those closest to him knew of his amazing story telling ability and love of hosting parties. His other passion in life was spending time on the island of Barbados; soaking up the sun, going for a swim, hanging out in a local rum shop, fixing up his house or exploring the island.

Jack is preceded in death by his parents, John and Violet Conway and two sisters, Ruth Poole and Judith Schoellner. He is survived by his three children, David (Beth), Reid (Amy) and Melinda Gravell. He also leaves behind three grandchildren, Kylie, Zack and Rose.

A Memorial Service for Jack will be held on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 11:00 am at St. George's-by-the-River Episcopal Church, 7 Lincoln Ave Rumson, NJ 07760. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Lunch Break in Red Bank would be greatly appreciated.
