Jack was a long-time resident of Brevard County where he resided with his family. He lived in Cape Canaveral for over 40 years and most recently had moved to Merritt Island. Jack worked in Construction most of his life and had an early retirement due to injury at 50. His passions included fishing, watching his favorite wrestling programs in person or on TV and spending time with his family. Jack loved Rock-n-Roll. His favorite band was Lynyrd Skynyrd, not only for their music, but also because he went to high school with them in Jacksonville. He was a devoted Husband, Father and Grandfather. His family was his entire life. He will be sorely missed by so many friends and family for he was known for being an all-around humble guy full of appreciation for the little things in life. His smile was contagious, and his stories were enjoyed by many.
