Jack and I shared many days together over a period of at least 60 years . Jack was always interesting— his mind was that of a thinker who had the solutions to solve many complex situations . I haven’t got use to the fact that he’s gone —he’ll be missed by many.

Very sorry for your loss, I must have delivered to Aces High Tavern for Whitehall Liquor Wholesalers during the 70's. Did your Dad know Tom Flaherty or Ricky McDonald from South Boston?

My favorite memories are fishing with my Grandpa and Dad. Even though there was always an argument on the boat.

We loved each other so much.

He was my best friend. I’ll miss calling him and asking him for advice or just to hear some of his stories. Especially stories about family.

I hope he’s with Grandpa, Grandma Maye and my Dad right now.

He was the best person I’ve ever known. I’m so lucky to have learned from him. I love you Grandpa. ☘️
