To all of Jack's family and friends. I am saddened to hear of Jack's passing. Jack was a friend and a mentor to me at the Connecticut Trolley Museum. He helped me with the training program here and we would compare elements of CT vs Seashore. Please know that Jack (Badge 167) will be dearly missed in Connecticut as well as his home. Our prayers go out to you.

Who would ever have thought that a casual introduction one Sunday afternoon in Wakefield would lead to a lovely courtship, a beautiful wedding, a good marriage, and two wonderful daughters? Jack was a good man, loving husband, and devoted father. Rest in peace, Jack. You will be missed.

Jo-Anne and family,
We were very sorry to read about Jack's passing. We remember the times we met for dinner and worked on Karen's Climb many years ago. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Jack was our club's expert on a number model railroading crafts and produced many videos to pass on his knowledge and techniques to others. He was generaous with his time, very patient and injected a fair amount of humor in his presentations. Most importantly, I enjoyed talking with Jack and hearing his very interesting railroading stories. I will miss his cheerful spirit at the club. He will certainly be missed, but, never forgotten.
