I worked at Philco Radio the same time Jack did. I didnt call him Jack in those, he wasMr. Cronin. Much, much later I met him again while playing bid euchre at the Aurora Senior club. Much to my surprise he recognized me and surprised me one afteroon by giving me a picture of Philco's baseball team from the 1940's. My best friend and I rooted for that team faithfully, so much so that at the end of one of their seasons they gave us one of their sweater, a scratchy old wool one that we really treasured. I joined the Women's Division of the Air Force in 1942 and lost track of Jack until that afternoon in Aurora. We shared some funny memories of those pre-war days. My sincere condolences on your loss.
