Jack is survived by his brother Francis and sister-in-law Joyce Reynolds of Chatham, his daughter Jackie Reynolds of Framingham, two grandsons and several nieces and nephews.

Quadruplely painful is losing two former coworkers in two days. Jack and I met in 1975 when we were raking-raking-raking to get Saint Joseph's Cemetery ready for Memorial Day. He had already navigated much in life, and I was adrift nearing graduation. Our conversations helped me, and his core of confidence remains vivid. Alongside Paul Daley in our crew, everything was groomed for that holiday, and two great people last week didn't take the stairway to Heaven alone.

Jack I knew Jack from Allston. He was a good-hearted and gentle man that walked with his head held high. Sorry for your loss.
