“Reno” and I go back over 60 years. He loved to play cards and some of the gang started calling him Reno.

I will always remember the good times we had at Town Hall and the University of Maryland. Though we lost touch over the years, John Ventresca and Rich Knight kept me up with Jack’s life and we reconnected. I am happy to have had Jack as a friend. My prayers to the family.

Memories are so numerous, as my big brother was always around to help out, he even took me out for driving lessons, in the big family car. He was always willing\and contributing to family dinners. He took care of our parents in their later years, checking to make sure they were alright, taking them to DR appts.
He did so many things in quite ways.
He loved eating crabs, loved the Ocean. So many memories. He will be missed. Nanny will welcome him home with open arms. 😘 Missing you already.
