He was also a loyal Elk for over 20 years. He was preceded in death by his parents Tom and Lulu, his sisters Jeannette Phillips and Patricia Tischler, a brother Bobby, and the love of his life Virginia Cummings "Ginnie". Jack is survived by his nieces Robin Gallego (Tony) and Amree Stellabotte (Richard), Carrie Glicksteen (Rob) and Wendy Waterman, and nephews Ken Phillips (Kris) and Steve Phillips (Shannon). He is also survived by his best friend/brother of over 80 years, Seymour Waterman. Please come to a remembrance on Saturday January 31, 2015 at 1 p.m. at Jack's residence.
