Paulette introduced me to Jack. He warned me that I should watch out for her and that she was trouble. He was right. We were married soon after. One day we were talking and he laughed and said, " See I told you about her, nothing but trouble". He had a great sense of humor and a greater laugh. Our thoughts go out to Jack's family and friends. He was nothing but trouble. Thank you Jack.

Jack will be missed by all and certainly by his loving family to which he remained devoted throughout his lifetime. He and his wife Josephine's lasting legacy is the incredible family they created, nurtured, and cared for so unselfishly throughout their lives. One of my fondest memories of Jack was his love for Oreo cookies and dropping a package of them off to him at home during a snow storm. The stock in Nabisco will surely take a hit without Jack's annual Oreo cookie purchases :) Much love to his family during this difficult time and may the many fond memories of this remarkable man remain a lasting gift for them.
