I am so very sorry to hear of Jacks passing. I grew up three houses down from Jack on Hambly Rd. Back in the 60s our neighbors were are friends. Jack was about a year older than me and his cousin Dan who lived right next door to him was a little younger. The three of us were always playing with something. Jack had a great aurora race car set in his basement set up on a ping-pong table. Yes he did play ping-pong . I had a basement full of lionel trains. We were always messing around with the engines or tracks. Kid stuff. We also had BB guns that we would shoot in my yard or his, sometime cans or targets that I would steal from my older brothers.
We lived near each other till we were thirteen or so. Jacks family moved so we didn't see much of each other but later years I would see him at the high school for different gathering and we would talk about old days and how the world is different.
You'll find happiness in the memories that you will always have of him.

My Dear Friend, As with everyone else I was stunned to learn that Jack had passed. But what a day to leave this mortal coil - The Feast of the Holy Trinity! Please know that you and your family are in my prayers. Be at peace Chris, comforted by your Faith, family and friends.
I always remember this joke about this couple whose wife decided they were going to eat healthy and they lived to be very old. They both died at the same time and when they got to heaven the man asked, "where are the low fat and low cholesterol tables?” . And St. Peter said “ you can eat as much as you like of whatever you like and you never get fat and you never get sick. This is Heaven.” Then the old man looked at his wife and said, “This is all your fault. If it wasn’t for you and your healthy eating, I could have been here years ago!”
Heaven, we were made for it, we long for it; it's our final destination. God's peace be with you.

Chris & Family, we are so sorry to hear the sad news regarding our cousin Jack. Jack"s family and our family spent many Holidays together. Grace & Gladys were inseparable as were Jack and my brother and sisters.
He was like our little brother. I remember many Saturdays staying at Aunt Grace's house on Hambly Road and being forced to watch the Mitch Miller Show. It was worth it since she made the best fried bacon in the world on Sunday morning. We have recently lost Jack's other cousin, Mark "Pete" Peterson who passed in February 2020 in Tampa, Florida. I know Pete will watch over him until we are all together.
Chris, our prayers are with the family as you will enjoy fond memories of him.
Our best,
Arthur & Linda Driscoll

I didn't know John for very long, but he was always smiling and never let a day go by where he didn't say hello. He will be missed here at the Attleboro City Hall. My prayers are with his family. RIP John

So sorry to hear about Jack. I know how painful and unreal it feels. My brother passed suddenly in August in just 3 months at age 62. I feel your pain and sorrow for losing someone so good, way too soon.

While I haven't seen you guys in a long time, I do remember our fun times in Little Compton. Lobster boils and all. I remember Jack as so fun, quiet but always loving and cherishing family. I have enjoyed watching your lives and first grandchild. Beautiful!

May Jack rest in peace. He will be sorely missed. Remember he will always be in your ❤ heart no matter what.
Fondly,
Kate

Chris, Jim and I are so very sorry to hear of the sudden passing of Jack. He was a wonderful friend and a kind man. There are no words for what you and Tim, Dan, and Lauren are going through. May your memories bring you comfort in your time of sorrow. He always had a smile and a story. Ben loved him like a father and he was a wonderful grandpa to Violet. A wonderful man who will never be forgotten.
