I met Jack shortly after he and his family moved to Sycamore. He had the biggest pretty blue four door Ford truck I had ever seen. Eventually we got acquainted and a lasting friendship was built. The friendship grew stronger and stronger over time and his loss is tuff, but the fond memories remain. Jack was a person of many qualities, and interesting idea's. I will miss him, and my condolences to all of the Amato family and friends.

I first met Jack shortly after he and his family moved to Sycamore. A friendship started and grew stronger every year since. It's hard to put into words how best friends are built, but a friend like Jack is very rare and takes time. Our friendship just kept getting stronger, and Jack was a person of many qualities, and of interesting idea's. I'm so grateful for the time I've had with him. I miss him, and my deepest condolences to all of the Amato family and friends

Jack brought a smile to our faces every time he and his companion Adama sped by on their way around Somerset Farms. We spoke several times and enjoyed hearing about his very full and fruitful life. We will keep smiling with this memory. Very sorry for your loss.
