Jack was a Korean War Combat Veteran, where he earned the “Purple Heart” medal for his outstanding bravery. We Thank You Dad for your service!
He worked as a Steelworker by trade at Alan Wood Steel in Conshohocken until his retirement.
He had a very generous heart and sweet soul. He was very kind and thoughtful and always tried to make his family and others feel welcomed and loved. Adored his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Jack was always a jokester! Always making you laugh with his silly comments, all while sticking out his tongue for every picture that he was in. He was one of the sweetest person that you’d ever meet, as anyone who met him would agree. Very sweet mannered and soft spoken. He was always smiling.
He loved watching Sports, (Baseball/Football) on a Sunday with the family gatherings. He was a big Michigan State fan being from Michigan. He loved outdoor picnics at the house with lots of yard games, music and a cold beer occasionally. He was an excellent horse shoe player and cornhole player, hard to beat.
He loved his sweets, especially his spiced jelly beans. There were always multiple jars out in the living room for all to enjoy.
