Sorry for your loss. I remember Jack as a much older kid when we moved to Croton in 1957. New His brother better. His parents were friends of the family they would always offer a word of encouragement and his volunteer work seems to mirror his parents. They lived on the corner of Cleveland and Piney Point. We lived at the end of Piney Point.
