Not sure what to say?

Jack was a friend from 1948 when we first met at Washington College and was always one of my favorite people. In recent years the Roberts, Ralph, Jack, Jenny &/or Lacey and I would get together several times a year in either Chestertown or Baltimore for lunch. A wonderful time was had by all. I remember Jack as an excellent Bridge player, a good dancer, fun to be with and he told the corniest jokes. Lots of good memories!!!

Uncle Jack was the best fun. I know I'm one of many who cherish the memory of his huge hand cradling my seat and sending me up to touch the ceiling. Do it again! Do it again! Please Uncle Jack! Of course, if I bugged him too much, one of those big long fingers ended up between my ribs and I'd laugh til I peed.

Jack was ALWAYS smiling! He had this trick he called The Wizard. I remember calling the "Wizard" when my son was 8 or so. My son and I were in aw of him! It was the COOLEST trick! He brought a lot of laughter and joy into this world, right up till the end (I saw the video of him singing on his grandpad) Love to the Bacon family)

Jack Bacon was my favorite father ever! He was singing and dancing right up to his passing. Always cracking jokes and making everyone laugh. I miss him so.
