Jack served in the Philippines during World War II until being honorably discharged. After returning home he began working for Consumers Power. Jack was a hard worker and retired after more than thirty years. When not working he enjoyed golf, bowling and hunting. He was a lifetime member of the Disabled American Veterans and held a high interest for Landing Craft Support ships.
